    IE 10 issue in RoboHelp 10

    John D 67995437 Level 1

      Info on Adobe site says the IE10 patch for RoboHelp 10 enables webhelp to work in IE10.


      If I apply the patch, does webhelp work ONLY in IE10 or does it work in both IE9 and IE10?


      Thanks for your help,

              As documented on Peter Grainge's snippets, the RH10 patch does NOT work if you content is on a Win 2008 server.  That was the case for me.


              If anyone else is unfortunate enough to run into this situation, there is a work around -- albeit ugly.


              In the index.htm file, do this for the head tag:


              <link rel="shortcut icon" href="whstart.ico">
              <title>Insert Your Title Here </title>

              <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >
              <meta name="generator" content="Adobe RoboHelp 10" />
              <meta name="description" content="WebHelp 5.50" />

              <!-- comment out or delete the following line generated by RoboHelp
              <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />


              Note that this is a bad solution if some of your users are stuck on a lower version of IE.

              It also means you need to make yourself a giant note to remember to manually edit the index.htm file.

                That also seems to fix the issue of the funky serifed fonts that appear out of position when you’ve got multiple topics for an index term.


                PS – I think you’re line is missing the ending forward slash - “/>” - isn’t it? Or is my e-mail just stripping it out.

                  Oh I cannot imagine all the weird stuff that will happen with css-related items for IE8.  I am REALLY not liking this as a solution and am afraid to look at all of our Help system!!!   But a lousy solution is better than no solution at all.


                  PS -- good  catch on the " />".  meta is actually self-closing so it works without it.  but to be consistent, yeah: "/>"
