I open a chapter file in FM10. I select File > Utilities, but the HTML Setup... option is ghosted and not selectable. I thought maybe something was wrong with my file, so I tried using one of the sample files provided by Adobe. Still no good. What am I missing???
Appreciate your insights.
@Arnis - that's what I thought. I find the use of the term "chapter" a bit imprecise around here in the forums. Some people talk about .book files as chapters, others the .fm files that make up a book - I've seen both uses. I just wanted the OP to clarify what they had open.
Is it possible that Adobe has a utility update? I know that when I did a
search on the Forums, topics on fixing FM10 kept coming up. I know there
was a fix I had to perform. I know that they issued a workaround before
they had the solution. Maybe the workaround temporarily disabled the
utility and I never performed the actual fix that re-enabled it...
The last FM10 patch was in January to fix a licenisng issue that caused FM10 to stop working. It hasn't affected the ability to show the HTML Setup utility on any of the machines here.
The shortcut should be entered as lowercase letters and you press each key (and release) in sequence, <esc> f t h. This brings up the HTML Setup on my installations. If it doesn't on yours, then I suspect something in your installation has been corrupted. Unfortunately, you may need to re-install FM10 (and all of the patches in sequence).
However, before you attempt any re-installs, are you working on structured documents in the strucured mode (this is what it looks like from your screen captures)? If the documents are NOT structured, then try switching to unstructured FM (via the Preferences). Note: do this only if you are completely certain that the docuemnts are unstructured, otherwise FM (after giving you a warning and a chance to bail) will strip out the structure when you open them.
I knew that there was an update in January 2013. I don't understand while the links everyone provides for downloads doesn't list any after November of 2011...
Yes I tried the key sequence. I even tried the Esc Shift+F L K sequence to make sure that the Esc sequences were working. They are working, just not the one you gave me.
I run in structured mode, but none of our files are structured (yet). I switched back to unstructured and restarted. Still no go. The option is still ghosted.
I think you are right. I need to reinstall.
Thanks so much for trying to help,
