Convert drop down hotspot to regular text

Jan 14, 2014 7:52 AM

Is there an easy way to convert drop down hotspots to regular text?

I am using RH8.

If I remove the drop down, it deletes the text content.

If I manually copy/paste the content from the edit window for each drop down, it is very time consuming.

    Sorry but there is no easy way. I'd recommend copy / paste every time.

    Hi folks

     

    I'd be surprised if Willam doesn't offer some sort of scripting solution to accomplish that.

     

    Over to you... Willam?

    The only thing I can come up it to write a script to do this. But that

    will only work if the circumstances of all dropdowns are the same

    (placement of text from dropdown, etc.)

     

    Kind regards,

    The problem with a script is that it is rather dumb. It is not too hard

    to remove all dropdowns and place the content somewhere on the page. But

    the script has to know where to put the content from the dropdown. If

    all dropdowns are exactly the same, it is doable to create a solution.

    But if all your dropdowns differ in how they are used, it is hard to

    make the script determine where to place the content.

     

    So if all your dropdowns are used for more information that can be

    displayed below the paragraph with the link (as is normal if you use

    dropdowns) a script is a feasible solution.

     

    Kind regards,

     

    Willam
