Hello,

I would like to add a column (Stylesheet) to the topic list pod. I'm not able to do so. I can not enter the settings by clicking on the heading of a column in the topic list pod.

I'm using Robohelp 2017 with subscription (german user interface). Does somebody know a solution for this?

Thanks

Michael

This is not an issue I have seen and it is not one listed in Updates 1 or 2. If you have not already applied Update 2 (which includes Update 1) you could try applying that just to see if it gives RoboHelp a kick.

Otherwise I think I would go for an uninstall and reinstall. There is no setting for this issue and it is installation related rather than project related.

You need to right click one of the existing headings to see a list of options. Click More and you will see Style Sheet as an option.

Thank you for your quick Reply. That was something I tried already. I also know this Feature from older RH Releases, but now I am not able to open the settings. Is there something I miss?

Hmmm, very odd.

Does the same happen if you change the workspace to a better one such as classic? Maybe it has something to do with the workspace?

Cheers... Rick

In addition to Rick's suggestion, does this happen in other projects? Try one of the sample projects. Click Open on the RoboHelp Starter page and then click Samples in the ribbon on the left.

I just tried it using different workspaces (General, TOC, index, ..), with always the same result ...

Thanks

I also tried a sample Project and a new Project (just created for testing this). The settings-box does not appear.

Thanks for your recommendations so far

Just checking, you did RIGHT click?

Also one last idea. Click a column to change the sort order. Wondering if that will give things a kick start.

I tried both, right- and left-click on different columns. I think I will go for a new Installation of RH, but not today. Perhaps tomorrow or the day after. My software-Version is 13.0.2., I had an update of RH last week.

Thanks again

Michael

Curious about another aspect here.

Does right-click work for the title bars of pods or inside topics? Perhaps what you are seeing is a general overall loss of right click for anything?

Cheers... Rick

Right-click works in General, for example for the topic-tabs, inside the topic-list pod, in the Project-Manager, inside Topics, ..

I reinstalled Robohelp today, and now I am able to Access this Settings.

Thank you for this tip, it worked fine.

Regards

Michael
