I inherited a large knowledge base at my job that was using
RoboHelp x5. It hadn't been worked on for more than a year when I
started, so the first thing I did was upgrade to RoboHelp 7. (I am
a total Robohelp beginner; been learning on my own since starting
her in Jan. 08) The first time I generated an output and published
the knowledge base in 7, we began to discover the project is
riddled with <&endash;> and <”> HTML
errors. RH x5 version read the endash and curly quotes fine and
displayed the characters.
What can I do now? Is there a global find and replace? What's
also weird is that the endash looks OK in the RoboHelp viewer. The
curly quote does show up wrong in the RH viewer as
Any help or insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for your response, Peter. Don't see the patch you
mention -- could you point me to it? I may not be able to use it
tho, b/c have made lots of edits and updates to our knowledge base
so I can't go back to the old R5 copy at this point.
If not, I will try the Helpware FAR. In looking at their
site, am not sure how it works: do I apply it to the output file or
the RH project files.
