I'm using RoboHelp Office X5.02 and I'm experiencing the
issue in Firefox in which the Webhelp "hide" button doesn't
display. I found a response to this issue last year, and it said to
find and edit the "whtbar.js" script in C:\Program Files\RoboHelp
\template_skinpreview\template_skin so that the line that contains
is shortened to just "else if(sType==”hide2”).
So I made the fixes in these directories AND in the folder in
which I published the output. However, when I regenerate the
output, the whtbar.js file reverts back to the original file, even
though I changed it in the RoboHelp directory.
I KNOW this fix works because I did it once before in another
help project, which has been republished several times since (and
the hide button still displays in Firefox)
Why wouldn't my changes "stick" this time? What should I
check or do differently?
Use the old tried-and-true method of copying whtbar.js to
another directory, then copying it over the file created by
RoboHelp during regeneration. I have several files like that
(hacked) and I keep them in a separate folder and do the paste
first thing after building the help. RoboHelp overwrites changes to
most files when it runs.
