    Opening Default Topic page in a new window

    Estel_MM
      Hi there,

      I am new to RoboHelp HTML. I have recently started using it for work and was asked to look into something.
      I am using version 7.

      The problem we have is that the RoboHelp html files are being incorporated into a web application. There is a link in the application called "User Guide". This link opens up the RoboHelp html files in the same browser window as the application. Therefore, when the user wishes to go back to the application or close the help files, he/she can't because it's all in one window and the application has session (so it wont let you go back to the application if you are in the help).

      I know it's possible to simply add a Target="_blank" to the actual "User Guide" link on the application side - for it to open the help files in a new browser window.

      However, I wanted to know if there is any way to configure the RoboHelp HTML to start the inital page - default topic in a new window from the actual RoboHelp software.

      Can someone shed some light on this please?

      I hope my question is clear enough, like I said, I am new to RoboHelp so my apologies if I haven't explained myself clearly enough or used the right words.

      Anyways, let me know.

      Thanks!
