I recently upgraded to RH11 and I cant view any external URLs from within the URL folder. The VIEW option is greyed out. How do I get this to work? What am I missing? I need to be able to open URLs from within the project without previewing a topic. This functionality was available in RH9.
Admittedly, I've never really used the ability to actually view the URL from the RoboHelp Explorer pod. So if you say it worked in earlier versions and it has now stopped, I'd heartily advise you to report it to Adobe via the bug report. Click the link below to open the page to file the report.
From what I'm seeing, your best bet at this point is to right-click the link and choose "Show Topic Links". Then from the Link View window, open the topic with the link and choose to preview and test the link from there.
