RH 2015

Though probably not RH2015 specific, I'm trying to delete a baggage file (.chm) which is listed in a project.

It has been added to the baggage list once from a subproject.

The subproject has been deleted for some reason and the link to the file got broken.

Now when I right click on the baggage file I do not see an option to delete the file. The delete option is grayed out.

How can I get rid of this entry?

Close the project and locate its rhbag.apj file. Open it in a text editor and you will find something like

<file>
<name>yourfile.gif</name>
<usercreated>true</usercreated>
<comments/>
</file>

Delete that section, save the file and reopen the project.

Hi Peter,

thanks. That solved it (almost)

Had to delete the .cpd file in addition to that prior to starting RH again. Only manipulating the rhbag.apj wasn't sufficient. After that the baggage file was still in the treeview.

But in the end I got it solved.
