    Robohelp deletes my legend html tag

    patrice_plume
      Hello everybody,

      I use Robohelp 7 and i have defined in a form a fieldset with a legend.
      When I generate Webhelp, Robohelp deletes automatically the HTML tag <LEGEND></LEGEND>.
      Why? Do you know a method to avoid that ?

          Hi Patrice

          This is admittedly a long shot, but who knows. Maybe it will work!

          Open a topic for editing. Then change from WYSIWYG to HTML view. Right-click and choose "Edit expansions".

          Click the New button and add your tags into the dialog.

          My hope is that by having the tags in there as an expansion, RoboHelp may be coaxed into leaving them alone.

          Please try this and report back as to whether it worked!

          Cheers... Rick

            Thank you for your answer but this technique does not function. Robohelp persists in removing my HTML tag.
            Another idea?

              Hello again

              Sorry for sporadic replies. I'm on a lunch break while conducting a Captivate 3 class.

              Well carp! Sorry that didn't work out. (I was crossing my fingers and hoping it would)

              About the only other possibility I can think of would involve perhaps using JavaScript to perform a "write in" of the codes. Or possibly using some unique characters surrounding each instance of the text and performing a bit of Post Processing using a Find and Replace utility to scan for the character sequence and replace it. I'm thinking something like this:

              You want: <LEGEND>Some text</LEGEND>

              You fashion the text to read instead: *bwaSome text/*bwa

              Then you perform the search and replace to search for *bwa and replace with <LEGEND>. Perform the search and replace again to search for /*bwa and replace with </LEGEND>.

              This probably looks way ickier than it really would be in practice.

              Cheers... Rick

                Thank you Rick for your answer.
                But I will try to find another solution because your method would be too complicated for maintenance by the customer.
