More details on this problem: The script goes through and updates the paths, but it is not until the file is saved/closed, and re-opened, that the paths show being changed, and then they can be updated. Is this some kind of error in CS5? This ability to automatically update links is important to my workflow so this is a critical issue for me that I cannot seem to solve.
In ExtendScript a method has to be invoked by placing a set of parens () behind it. I don't know VBA but it seems to me that the method Update is not being invoked properly.
Robohelp has always had a problem. Their help instructions leave the user saying, "I asked a question and your answer is way too ambiguous to be meaningful." They talk about "breadcrumbs" as though you know what breadcrumbs are and can follow what they are saying. To me, "breadcrumbs" are crumbs left by brittle bread. They tell you how to make them without telling you how they look or what they are supposed to do.
It is all over Robohelp. I had to look on Google to find out what a T.O.C. is because they don't say anywhere that it refers to the table of contents.
Robohelp needs to follow this rule: Define a word before you use it. Otherwise no matter how you describe it, the description has no value.
This is why they do things shoddily when talking about VBA. In VBA you have to have "Subs" and "Functions" before you have a place to put the script. In Robohelp they simply show you the lines of code without telling you how to make a sub routine or function. They don't tell you how to dim the variable in Robohelp. It doesn't work the same in Robohelp as it does in MS Access, MS Word or any other application that uses VBA.
Robohelp is trying hard but the people who write things are not communicators. They are obfuscators.
Now for those who need to learn VBA. I teach it after work free. contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can share with you my 18 years of experience using it in MS Access, Word, Excel, Outlook and other applications. However I can't tell you how to use it in Robohelp yet because they don't clue me in on it. They break the rules.
