I need to open a topic via a hyperlink. No problem...
The problem is, I want it to open in a secondary, cusotmized
window, not in a popup or in the original window, i.e., I would
like the originating window to remain visible and have the linked
topic appear in a second window.
The only way I can see to access a secondary window is
through the TOC or Index. What am I missing (Doing this is no
problem with Help & manual...)?
This is an old design flaw in the help viewer in that you
can't easily define a window to use. There is a nearly equally old
workaround which uses a Related Topics object to open the secondary
window. If you search this forum you will find many answers to this
question and many will point you to Rick Stone's Tips and tricks
file, which you can get from
