I am trying to link to a PDF using its inline page and named
destination parameters from HTMLHelp.
I prototyped a simple HTML file and was able to open the PDF
and jump to the desired page number and named destination without
I tried the same scheme using RoboHelp HTML X5. I linked to
the PDF file using the WYSIWYG editor and then used TrueCode to add
the appropriate parameters to the URL. Then, using View|View Topic
from the WYSIWYG editor, I was able to invoke the PDF correctly and
again jump to pages and named destinations without problems.
However, when I compile the help project using RoboHelp into
a chm, the PDF opens but does not jump to the appropriate page.
The PDF already shows up in the baggage files, the HTML links
are relative, and the page number and named destination parameters
are correct because they work from View Topic. The PDF starts in
its own window after a file download security warning is answered
"Open". The jumps to specific pages within the PDF just do not seem
to work from the chm.
