I am working in RoboHelp HTML version 8 that is published as WebHelp. The system I am developing for has a search window as part of a skin that is available above the topic windows and is not always easily accessible. Can you create a search window to appear in individual help panes like they do in Microsoft Office Word 2007's Help? (to do this, can you use skins within each Help topic pane?) Or can a link or a button be created within a help topic pane to bring up a search window as a popup? If so, can you give me high level steps to doing these tasks? thanks.
Although you can open RoboHelps search pane in a popup, the search function will not function. I guess the easiest is to use another tool for your search, one that you customize into what you need. On Peter's site, he uses a progam called zoomsearch, which you can also use for RoboHelp projects. See http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/zoomsearch/zoomsearch.htm
Thanks. I'll look into that. Just wanted to verify, do you use the term "popup" to refer to all Help topic panes?
