The current topic I'm in is a print-only topic, ultimately for a readme.pdf file. It has a bullet with a link to the Help file in case users are viewing the .pdf online, they'll be able to go to the Help. The Help resides in a "help" sub-folder under where the readme.pdf resides.
Here's the code for my link:
<li><p class="BodyText">Internet Connection<br />
(Either this computer or another computer on your organization's LAN
needs an Internet connection. You can point non-Internet computers
to an offline cache location on your LAN. For information, see the
<a href="help/Universal_Updater_help.htm">Help</a> documentation.)</p></li>
The problem is that the link is completely removed when I generate the .doc. There is no online CBT in play and the SSL's "Retain hyperlinks" check box is marked.
In the generated Word doc, if I hover over the word "Help", it is getting the Hyperlink style, but the style has no colors etc assigned to it. I'm not sure why. Maybe something happened to my Word template? (I transferred everything over to a new computer last week and maybe that's causing an issue?)
In any case, if I hover over a different link in the same word document, I do at least get the Ctlr + Click message to visit the URL:
If I generate again, and in the SSL, where it asks where I want to use styles from, if I choose "Stylesheet" instead of "Microsoft Word Template" and just use the project's main .css, that second link with the http:// does appear colored. This tells me that ultimately it's not really a style issue with the "Help" link (that's a secondary issue), but the main issue is that the relative link is getting completely removed.
What am I missing? I consider myself an old hat at printable output with RH, so I find it odd that I cannot see the solution here. For no, I've manually added the link into the .doc and styled it manually so I can get the readme out the door. But hoping all of this can be done in the source so I won't have to always to post processing. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
