Item 2 (above) update: In the 2nd set of html files created (added to the first set in the help file, the changes *are* reflected. I missed that. So for item 2, I would still like to know how to get a single instance of the updated document project reflected in the generated help file.
Welcome to RoboHelp user forum.
For point 1, how are you generating hyperlinks in RH from import? You may need to import settings.
You are right on point 2, the changes in FM will get updated in RoboHelp if you are using Technical Communication Suite.
on point 1: The hyperlinks exist in the framemaker document project. Text to be hyperlinked in framemaker is formatted with a character format and a marker is placed within the formatted text. The marker contains the hyperlink. When the framemaker files are imported into a robohelp project, the actual hyperlink is interpreted correctly in the output (when you click the hyperlinked text, you go to the appropriate url), however the character format which, in framemaker is restricted to the hyperlinked text 'bleeds' and all remaining text in the paragraph has the formatting applied to it (in this case, the remaining text is blue...and should not be).
on point 2: I understand that in the communication suite the content is updated automatically, but what I need to know is how to, without the suite ... using the FM and RH versions I have, update the RH project. When I try to re-import the updated files, I just get a new copy *in addition to* the old copy. When the out put is generated I have two versions of the content from the framemaker files, from the first import and from the second.
