RH9 - webhelp - parent and 4 child projects
Is there a recommended (if any) way for a user to "share" a help topic by either downloading it as a file of some type, or by getting a link that would be (for lack of a better word) "internally consistent" regardless of the actual URL of where the user's webhelp has been installed?
Right now, we can copy and past into an email, which is fine but loses a lot of formatting. I tried saving a page using the standard browser save feature and several different formats (complete page, html only page, etc.), but when I try to open them either files are missing or it freezes the browser. Although saving only the topic frame as a complete page does work, I'm not sure it's the best solution.
Are there other options to consider? We're new to webhelp so apologies if I'm overlooking a rather simple solution.
Snippet 114 and maybe 38 on my site may help except that you want something that works regardless of where the user has installed the help. I can't see how you are going to get a full URL if different people will have different installations. You may be able to work something out by looking at the end part of the path.

I just checked the script on Peter's site. The toolbar method on Peter's site may not work on RoboHelp 9 because RoboHelp 9 introduced DUCC which adds an extra frame. I updated my Toolbar scripts to now include an Email function. The toolbar scripts also hold an example function (GetRelTopicURL()) that always gets the URL of the current topic.
