I have RoboHelp HTML 2002 Build 949. I have a secondary
monitor that is on the left of the primary monitor so the x
coordinates are negative. When I open a help window on the
secondary monitor, and have text popups setup to appear when a
button or a piece of text is clicked, the popups appear on the
primary monitor with '0' x-coordinate and correct y-coordinate.
If the secondary monitor were to be on the right side of the
primary monitor, the popup appears correctly. If the help window is
on the primary monitor, the popup appears correctly. So my
conclusion is that RoboHelp HTML 2002 is not handling negative
coordinates situation (which arises in the case of dual monitors
when the primary monitor is on the right side) properly. Or there
is something that I can do programmatically.
Is there anything that can be done by me to fix this problem?
And/or is it true that RoboHelp HTML 2002 is not handling negative
I use RoboHelp 2000, and the application doesn't handle the
dual monitor well. For instance, I can't get it to use the second
monitor as a default position. I think the application was written
before dual monitors became commonplace. I think your only option
would be to edit the BSSCDHTM.JS file - functions like
BSSCPopup_ResizeAfterLoad. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how to
it comes to the built in functions to get existing document
