Is there a way to move a topic from one of the Almanacs to the Mechanics reference?

Not easily. You have to make a temporary Category, move it to the temp Category, then move the temp Category to the other type. From there you can change it to the desired Category and delete the temporary one.

This has long been an annoyance. Early in my RWing, I put a large numbers of monsters into the World Almanac. Later I realized I should have put them into Mechanics. The methods I was told I could use to fix this didn't work for me, So I had to reenter them, and then go thru each of the original creatures and move all references to the new monster. Pain in the A.........

Thanks for asking, Warklaw! I was actually on the verge of asking this myself. Also, thank you, daplunk, for addressing this issue with a video!

Oh I didn't really address this. I recommended against it in case it breaks something

Unfortunately that did not seem to work. While I was able to create a temp category and move it to the mechanics reference (with the topic in tow) when I attempt to "Change topic to a different category" it only gives me Topic (not article) categories to select from. Am I missing something?

UPDATE: Okay I was able to do it, looks like the final step is editing the moved topic and then saving it again... it then seems to change from a Topic to a Article... thus allowing me to move it to the wanted article category.

Probably I'm missing something; I haven't done it in recent memory. Let me go sacrifice a test realm....

Ah, you have to do it from the Categories list (Move All [Topics/Articles] to Category). Even afterwards, the list is still wrong for the Topic/Article itself until you make RW refresh it. (I quit RW and came back and then it showed the right list.)

While I was able to move the topic daplunk is on to something. While I have noticed anything else I did immediately notice that Section Labels are no longer underlined.



Closing and re-opening the program did not resolve this new quirk.

I don't see that in my converted test Article, FWIW.
