Hello, I have a merged project using RoboHelp 15, MSIE 11, Windows 7 ENT.

I’ve received a message (in the parent project):
Screen Layout xcxxc already exists. Choose a different name.

Is the only solution to swap the MasterThemeSchema and rebuild the layout?
Thanks

I assume you are trying to add skin in RoboHelp 2015.

If so, just give the skin a slightly different name, perhaps add 2 at the end.

Otherwise telling us where you are getting that message would help.

In a recovered project, in the Responsive HTML5 Settings I clicked Save and Generate,

and was prompted to add a Screen Layout.

I clicked Gallery and selected Azure_Blue.

The system displays layout already exists.

So in the name field lower down when you select the skin, edit the name.

okay.

And from what I understand, this means that I must reconfigure whatever I had previously setup in the layout...
There's no way to recover my previous layout.

Do you have the customised layout in another project? If you do, export it

somewhere and then import it into the recovered project.

At the outset you said this was a merged project. Isn't the skin also used

in one of the other projects in the merge?
