Copy link to clipboard
As part of my robohelp project (RH2017) i've begun adding 'in-page' hyperlinks, which jump to a later sub-heading in the same article (but not adding these bookmarks to the ToC).
As is standard with this type of link, I tag the target sub-heading with a relevant 'id' and then create the hyperlink simply as <a href=#id>Link</a>
Unfortunately once this is added, despite it working correctly, Robohelp identifies it as a broken link.
Has anyone else come across this? The concern is that these start to build up and I miss a genuine error in future.
Should I be doing this via some other process?
I selected some text and applied a bookmark. In Code view it looks like this.
Then I selected the text for the link, right clicked and used Insert Hyperlink
<p><a href="#Target">This</a> is some sample text.
That's how RoboHelp does it so I'm not sure how you got id and nothing inserted for the id. Are you doing this in code view? Use RoboHelp's UI as I did not get a broken link and it works just fine.

It turns out 'id' had crept into my html instead of 'name' and was proliferating via the clipboard. Swapping over has solved it!
