RoboHelp HTML, WebHelp output
We have a "NavigationPath" style in many topics to show users how they get to the user interface component, such as an Options pane, described in the topic. The style is bulleted, with the bullet being a "location pin" image named "navigation_2.png".
We have used this image for 2-3 years without any problem. Suddenly, over the last week, when we generate WebHelp output, RoboHelp renames the image, by adding "_nc" to the name: "navigation_2.png" becomes "navigation_2_nc.png". As a result, the output no longer shows the image. (I work around the problem by renaming the PNG without the "_nc", but would prefer to keep this from happening each time I generate the output.)
Has anyone experienced this bizarre issue?
Hmmm, just hazarding a total guess on my part, but perhaps the _nc indicates "New Copy"?
Without seeing your project first hand, it's hard to say exactly why this is happening. Do you perhaps use the image in a topic somewhere? My thought is that perhaps if it's in use elsewhere that maybe RoboHelp coding considers that a new or different copy is needed. Hence the name change.
Thanks, Rick, for the useful though about the meaning of “nc”. I don’t think we use the image other than as the bullet in the NavigationPath style, but will look into this. At any rate, it’s bizarre that it worked fine until recently, and that this does not happen with any other images that we use.
Rick, I did look to see where else the image might be used elsewhere in the project. It's not used anywhere else.
Thanks, Peter. I’ll send them email later.
