Robohelp changes hyper-links with # sign

Hi community,

 

Robohelp 9.0.2

 

I have an issue with Word hyperlinks. I want to generate a project with 20 separate .doc files as project topics.

As I want to crossreference these topics, the only good way I found is to add a final topic address in the .doc file as a hyperlink, e.g.:

http://mycompany.com/documentation/index.htm#topic.htm

 

But after generation I find that all links refer to the page that contain those links (e.g. http://mycompany.com/index.htm)

 

How to  avoid this transformation?

 

Or maybe there is a more correct way to do cross-reference? (w/o manually changing generated html files).

 

I will appreciate any help as I want to migrate documentation to Robohelp and search the best approach.

 

Best regards!

    You want links between Word documents that survive when you link to them all in a Rh project, if I have understood you correctly.

     

    I think this was explored once before on these forums and the conclusion was that it cannot be done.

     

    Is there an overriding reason for having linked documents rather than having the content in RoboHelp?

    The use of the hash tag is a way of opening a Rh output showing a topic other than the default topic. See http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/calling_webhelp/using_urls.htm on my site.

     

    I think the problem is that they are not surviving the link process and, as above, I think others have found the same issue without any posted resolution.
