    Zoom search highlight in topics

    Help_searcher Level 1
      I have now got Zoom search working well with RoboHelp 7, however, when I try and implement the highlight.js code to provide highlighting in search results this causes a problem with the DHTML drop-downs.

      I tried both the onload and outside body method of calling the highlight function, but both of these caused problems. In the generated webhelp, when you open a topic from the TOC the drop-downs work fine. However, if you open the same topic as a Zoom search result, then the drop-downs will not expand. I tried several ways to implement this and they all had the same problem. I assume that there's some issue with the RH drop-down JavaScript and the Zoom highlight JavaScript.

      Has anyone found a way round this?

          The highlighting is not something I have used. Why not contact Wrensoft to ask them if they have had other reports of this from RoboHelp users? David Wren is very helpful on things like this and is aware they have a RoboHelp user base.

            Thanks for the suggestion. It's hard to know which issues to raise in which forum! I thought that someone else had probably encountered this already.

              Hi there Help_searcher

              When I read your response to Peter's suggestion I sense that perhaps you felt Peter was somehow admonishing you for posting the issue here. I'd just like to say that I'm very doubtful that he was doing that at all. He was only trying to help you.

              If you are concerned about which forum to use (Wrensoft or Adobe) then just post to both forums and see where you get an answer first. No harm in that.

              As for any concerns about which Adobe forum category to post in, unless you have a really odd issue, it won't make much of a difference as most of us here watch all forum categories and will reply if we are able.

              Cheers... Rick

                I didn't mean it to come across that way. Peter's right, Wrensoft have been very helpful and do respond quickly to messages. Indeed, having taken Peter's suggestion late last night I've got up this morning to find a reply from Ray already (not sure that my JavaScript is up to working out what the conflicts are, but will have a look when I get to work).

                Thanks to you both for replying, it makes a real difference to know that people are prepared to try and help when you're battling against the software.
