What output are you looking to create?
We already have departmental procedures, policies, etc built for our employees to use. However, they have encountered errors using Chrome recently. For example, if they go to pull up a particular page, it brings up the wrong page. Maybe this issue has to be addressed for each type of problem?? I was hoping for a general remedy!
That didn't really answer my question - I'm assuming you're talking about WebHelp?
Newest versions of Chrome have busted all WebHelp output that's located on a local hard drive or intranet server. This was a "security" fix and has got everybody who locally distributes WebHelp miffed. No word on how (or who) is going to fix this - Google or the HAT makers.
I seem to remember Peter mentioning something about Safari only being supported on Macs - no PC version of it is supported by RH.
From what I remember, Firefox works ok with WebHelp. I could be wrong - I haven't noticed any problems with my output lately (but I haven't checked recently either).
Thanks - but I am in the RoboHelp forum using RH 8. Sorry for any confusion
Just because you're in the RoboHelp HTML forum, doesn't mean that everybody automagically knows what output type you're creating - it just means that you're using RH HTML, not RoboHelp for Word.
The deal with RoboHelp 8 is that IE and Firefox are supported.
Chrome is not supported but should work except if the webhelp is on a local drive. There is a workaround for that which may or may not be acceptable to you, see Snippets on my site. The problem with local webhelp in Chrome applies to all webhelp, not just that produced by RoboHelp.
WebHelp in Safari is only supported for Safari on a Mac but again it is likely to work OK with Safari on a Windows machine.
I am surprised that Chrome is calling the wrong topics and think that would need further investigation. A link is a link so its difficult to see why Chrome would bring up the wrong topic.
Appearance on the other hand I would expect to be a bit different in each browser. The differences though should be very minor.
None of this is to do with settings in RoboHelp. The wrong topic issue needs some poking around and the first test would be to set up another simple project to see if the same issues arise. Appearance differences will either have to be accepted or individually addresses for which details are needed.
