Find all images with multiple references to them

Anyone know an easy way to find all images, in a book, that have more than one reference to them. To import FM books to RoboHelp, we're finding there must be a seperate instance of each repeated image. 

Quick'n'dirty: create a LOR for referenced graphics, then sort it in a text editor and check by eye? I don't have an example or the necessary information to hand, but I vaguely remember making a custom LOR that included the filename to make it even easier to get back to any instance of a referenced graphic.

You haven't said which version of RoboHelp you are using. The information will in be reports but how you access them differs between Classic and New UI.

 

I'm not sure that you do need separate instances and will leave that part of the answer to Jeff, our resident Fm supporter.

I am not involved with the RoboHelp portion, I've just been told that we must be certain to create unique images for all references, even if they are identical. I'm not sure which version of Robohelp they are using. Thank you for your reply.

Sounds like more of a FM question than a RH one.

 

@RobertNunemacher what problem are you running into? The RH import doesn't care (as far as I've found) if you've got the same image used in different spots in your FM content - as long as they're in anchored frames, they should come over.

I'm still not hearing what the issue actually is - what version of FM and RH are you running?

I am using FM 2019. I have no idea which version of RH is being used - I am not involved with that process. I am going strictly by what I have been told by the individuals that manage the FM to RH process. They told me that all references must have a unique image associated with them - no image should be refernced more than once in FM or it "breaks" RH. I have no idea what "breaks" means to them. They may very well be mistaken and by your reply it seems they are.

Maybe you need to have the actual users of RH & FM respond to the thread; that might give Peter & myself a chance to figure what issue they're facing.

I only work in FM, not RH. I'm not at all concerned with the issues they are having with RH. I might recommend that they start a thread of their own to further research why they are having trouble with multiple image references. I was just looking for a way to identify any images that are referenced more than once in a book.  Even if they are wrong in their assertion that multiple references create problems in RH, I am still required to create unique images for each reference, or the project is rejected. Unfortunately, policy prevails over practicality in our company. It doesn't sound like this is possible, but I very much appreciate you taking the time to reply to my post.

Ok, then let's move this thread over to the FM forum where there's a much higher chance of someone answering your FM question about finding all images referenced in a book.
