    Auto-Sizing Popups

    jdcyclone1 Level 1
      When I try to place a graphic inside an auto-sizing popup, I'm able to preview it when I preview my topic, but after I publish it to the RoboHelp Server the pop-up comes up with a page not found error inside!? However, if I change it to appear in a new window or in the same window it shows up just fine. Are pop-ups just meant to annoy me or is there something I'm missing?

          In addition, after checking on the RH Server, any image included in an auto-sized popup does not get pushed to the server when you publish your project!? The image wasn't even in the folder.

            I'm not clear on how you're putting the graphic into the popup, but here's an approach that works for me.

            Create a new topic and insert the graphic using the RH Insert > Image dialog. Make sure you're importing it from somewhere outside your RH project folder, so RH will recognize it as a new image that needs to be tracked in its project files and database.

            Create a link from text, icon, image, image map or -- whatever -- to the topic with the graphic. Select the auto-sizing popup option in the link dialog.
