      How do I link to a file so that HTML-Help does not try to load the file in its own browser? I am using a JavaScript found on this url: http://alexandra.di.uoa.gr/mmtech/msTech/2_VBSCRIPT/PDFs/Scripting%20Guide.pdf. [RoboHTML's interface for linking to files doesn't seem to work.] What happens is that, contrary to the web site, HTML-Help tries to load any file (not just .txt and .chm) into the HTML-Help browser. In the case of PDF files, the browser corrupts the PDF file. [A bonus!]

          Welcome to the forum.

          "RoboHTML's interface for linking to files doesn't seem to work."

          Tell us how it doesn't work for you and we can help. I just added a PDF to baggage, highlighted some text, dragged the PDF to the text I had selected and it created a link. When I clicked that link in the CHM file, it opened a new window which is what you want.

          Then you say it corrupts the PDF. I have never seen RoboHelp corrupt a PDF. Can you be more specific?
