Hi. I have upgraded a RH8 project to RH2015. After fixing all issues from the upgrade, the project compiled correctly.

However just recently, i noticed that the Master page i use is missing from the Output Setup window. The project compiles correctly but i can no longer edit the Master page (for footer date changes) in RH. The workaround is to open the .htt file in Notepad and edit there.

I can't Import the Master page, RH says the file is already in use. So i am stuck with the workaround.

Another recent bug in RH caused CHM files to double in size. After much angst, i found that compiling to a folder far, far away fixed the situation.

These random bugs are quite annoying, especially when i can't figuring out what is going wrong.

Cheers,

Sue from Hobart

Can you try the following:

  1. Make a backup of the project.
  2. Cut the .HTT with windows and paste it on your desktop.
  3. Open RoboHelp.
  4. Import the master page from your desktop.
  5. Assign the master page to the topic once again.

Doe sthat solve it?
