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.
Your requirement cannot be met with simple use of RoboHelp
function to make it work. And here's the rub. Assuming you get it
to work, it may have an adverse effect in that if you configure the
default topic to open this way and your end user just happens to
land on that Default topic again, poof! Another new window.
The reason I was asking if there was anyway to do it from
RoboHelp is because for them to change the "User Guide" link on the
application side will take weeks because they need to Re-test the
