Hello there, hoping to get some advice on a couple issues
We just started deploying FlashHelp here, and have run into a
couple of snags. I am running RoboHelp version 6, Flash player
version 9, and have the Flash authoring software (if needed), but
that’s version MX 2004. We’re running IE 6 and Windows
In a FlashHelp (generated) project, when on the Index tab, if
I use the search box to search for an index word, the following
error displays: "A script in this movie is causing Adobe Flash
Player 9 to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may
become unresponsive. Do you wish to abort the script?" If I tell it
NOT to abort the script, the computer still runs slowly. If I tell
it to go ahead and abort the script, Internet Explorer freezes up.
I asked our in-house web team and Flash development team to
look at the index issue, and they discovered something strange. The
index only breaks if the index word entered starts with the letter
A. Has that ever happened to anyone else? We’ve tried
multiple help projects on multiple boxes (computers), and results
have been very inconsistent. Sometimes it breaks, sometimes not,
but ONLY when the index entry starts with an A.
Is there something that I can change in the code anywhere to
prevent that from happening in the first place? Alternately, is
there a way to change the skin to completely remove that input
field from the index? It's not necessary to our process to have it
there, so long as the index entries are there with the scroll bar.
Note: We’re just using the Flash Default skin –
One of my latest help projects is context-sensitive. When
called from within the application (F1) the proper topic displays.
However, the TOC always shows the default book - it does not expand
to match to where the user really is within the help.
Even stranger (to me), the TOC works just fine for the
first-level and second-level books and pages. However, anything
third level or deeper, the TOC behaves as described above -
defaulting to the welcome page book.
All the books are books with links (to topics), if that
matters. Also, I tried generating the project as WebHelp, and had
the same results - the TOC still would not automatically populate
when called as CSH from within the application.
In all other respects, things seem to be functioning just
I downloaded the trial version of RoboHelp 7, and had the
