Those are probably those MS Word "curly quotes." The best thing to do is:
1. In WYSIWYG, type a space and double quote after one of these beasties.
2. In True Code (or HTML in RH7), compare the code for the two of them.
3. In Multi-File Find & Replace, replace all the bad ones with good ones.
Note that you might have more than one "bad" version, so you might have to repeat 1-3.
Thanks for the reply. I have version X5.
How do you view the True Code in the drop down text within the topic?
And, how do you do the Multi-File Find & Replace?
Hopefully Leon won't mind me interjecting here as he is likely to be asleep! Dropdowns and Expanding text are slightly more difficult to track down in the Truecode but once you know what to look for they are OK.
If you position the cursor in the WYSIWYG at the start of the drop down/expanding text, then go into the truecode you will see an <a class=dropspot x-use-popup=#POPUP160338860> tag. Copy the popup number (e.g. in this example 160338860) to your clipboard. Then go to the top of your truecode and do a find (Ctrl + F) on the number. you should find a DIV tag near the top of the topic with the popup number following by the dropdown/expanding text.
RH supplies it's own find and replace tool in the Tools tab. That said, most of us here prefer to use other tools such as FAR or BkReplacEm.
Thanks, McAndrew. I'll check it out.
Has Adobe taken care of this issue in the most current versio of ROboHelp or is this an HTML problem?
As I indicated in my first response, this is a "how-the-RH-HTML-Editor-interprets-goofy-MSWord-code" issue.
And as you've probably discovered by now, TrueCode is one of the tabs below the topic pane (along with WYSIWYG, Link View, and Topics).
In the Project pane (to the left), select the Tools tab, then Multi-File Find and Replace.
Thanks again, Leon.
