Expanded text drop-down boxes? Are we talking about expanded text or dropdowns?
I think your question is you want a link in one dropdown to something in another dropdown?
On my site there is information about how to create a link from one topic to a dropdown in another and have it open. However even that will not link to something IN the dropdown.
If my guess about what you want is right, I don't think it can be done. If not, please clarify what you want.
Thanks for your response. Your guess is half (maybe 1/3) right. First, I am sorry for the confusion between expanded and drop-down text. I do mean drop-down text. Secondly, I want to create a link in a drop-down to another point in the same drop-down. I want to create a list of links at the top of the drop-down to direct users to specific sections in the same (really big) drop-down. Why my customer wants this funtionality is beyond me, but I guess that's besides the point.
So, if I understand you correctly, this cannot be done. Bummer!
There are some alternatives on my site.
Thanks again for such a speady reply.
I did check out your site before I posted my question. Your site has been a wonderful resource. I check it quite often, and most times I do find my answers there. However, this time, I didn't find what I was looking for. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place? Or maybe I'm not reading your titles/descriptions properly. I really hate to be a pain, but could you point me in the right direction? Can you just let me know the name of the snipid I'm looking for?
Thanks again so very much,
Look at RoboHelp | Autoexpand for information about creating a link to a hotspot so that it opens.
Look at Authoring | Dropdowns for information about alternatives to RoboHelp's dropdowns. They are not as easy to implement. There are other methods out there but many don't work too well.
