I'm tring to convert a HLP file to a CHM file, I recover
almost all the hlps files but I lost the external links. there's
external link to other hlps files and I need to keep them.
Can someone help me ?
You can certainly have links to external files in a CHM. How
you do this though depends on whether users need to access the
version at the point they click on the link or at the point the CHM
was generated. The former uses a link to a URL where the external
file is located. This allows the user to open the file as it
currently exists. The later links to a file that is copied into the
CHM. This means the user gets the file as it existed when the link
Both methods are performed via the Insert > Hyperlink menu
item. There you will find a downward arrow next to the "Link To"
field which when clicked displays a menu. Use the Web Address and
File options as required.
