We want to upgrade historical files that were created in FrameMaker v5.0 on a Windows XP workstation to the current FrameMaker version 2017. Hypertext were employed to link FrameMaker files [Example: gotopage ($Home)/TestFile2.fm:1]. As a test case, we rendered a subset of files to FrameMaker v2017 and noticed a problem with hypertext links accessed thru popup sub-menus as follows.
As an example, consider to popup menus called cars and trucks. The cars popup menu has the sub-menu items: Accord, Impala and Focus. The trucks popup menu has the sub-menu items: F150, RAM and Sierra. With the FrameMaker v2017 rendered files, we were able to hyperlink to all sub-menu items under the cars popup menu but were unable to hyperlink to any sub-menu item under the trucks popup menu. After verifying that all hyperlinks were correct, we swapped the order of the popup menus. Now we were able to hyperlink to all sub-menu items under the trucks popup menu but were unable to hyperlink to any sub-menu item under the cars popup menu.
Installed FrameMaker v6.0, rendered the same subset of files and got the same behavior as seen in FrameMaker v 2017. Unable to install FrameMaker v5.5 on Windows 7 64-bit workstation to check it's behavior.
Any suggestions on how to proceed would be appreciated.
