I am brand new to Robohelp and have a question that is
probably pretty easy but cant figure it out. I am working in
Robohelp v7 and trying to add an help topic to an existing project.
I would like to make a link in a topic that I made that will open a
topic in the existing project.
What I tried to do first is create an Alink in the topic but
it said that the page could not be found. Then I tried to create a
redirection topic that basically had a line of code added to the
HTML code that forced it to go to that topic. I added the following
code to the HTML:
It also stated that the link was not found and that it needed
a program to run remote.chm.
Then I put in a link to google and when previewed in
Robohelp, it works. When it is in the program after compiling, it
says the link does not exist.
I think I figured it out. Instead of linking through
metatags, I created a hyperlink that points to a remote URL. The
only tricky part of that was the copying of the file to the new
project folder and decompiling the exisitng project to know what
naming convention I need to use. Onto the next step. Hopefully this
may help the next guy with this problem.
