CSS opens in SharePoint Designer instead of Styles dialogue box

Using RH 2015, I am trying to edit the CSS sheet for an HTML5 screen layout. I don't know what I did, but before I did "it", the .css file in Output Setup had a Notepad-like icon and I was able to open it in the usual dialogue box. The layout elements looked like this:

layout-editable-css.gif

Then after the unknown event, most of the objects' icons turned into the baggage file icon, including the one for the css:

layout-uneditable-css.gif

Worse yet, when I double-click the file now, it tries to open SharePoint Designer. I captured the first image in this post from a separate project after I found this problem, so this is not a RoboHelp-wide problem. How do I fix it?

In RoboHelp 2015 Release, click File > Options.

From the ensuing dialog, click File Association and see if there is anything there for CSS.

Also, if you locate the CSS and double-click it using Windows File Explorer, what opens?

Soooo, did it correct itself as mysteriously as it started? Or did you take some action to make it happen?
