I know that there are several posts out here about the
conversion form X5 to RH 7.0 and "&endash;" appearing in the
actual compiled HTML instead of an actual –. Those have been
very helpful to me in getting my head around why I was seeing code
in my compiled help!!
We have fixed all the erroneous &endash appearances in
our documentation, and have installed the 7.0.2 patch that has the
fix for when we open any of our other projects. So, here's what's
strange. I seem to be able to insert an endash just fine on my
computer using the Insert Symbol menu and the short cut Alt 0150
and things compile fine. Endashes looking like endashes. However,
my coworker, who is running the same version of RoboHelp with all
the patches that I have, is not able to insert the endash. It looks
fine in the WYSIWYG view in RoboHTML, but when she compiles, or
when she uses the preview (Eyeglasses icon), the dash displays as
&endash in the text. Her instance does not however convert all
the correct appearances of an endash... seems to only be anything
new that she adds.
Any ideas? Our current work around is for her to use a
regular -, which is an ok work around, but I'd like a solution if
possible. We've looked for settings that might be different,
missions fonts, etc, and have come up with nothing.
