Is anyone else encountering this regarding the Favorites feature in this layout?
Windows 10, IE11

Does the same behaviour happen if you use one of the other layouts?
If I understand the new layouts correctly, the 'Favorites' feature is only in the new Indigo layout. Still learning...I could be wrong.
Here is something worth understanding from the HTML code. Why does it say aria-hidden for the favoritesLabel?:
<div class="favorites sidebar-button" id="favorites-toggle-button-header"
<a data-attr="aria-label: @KEY_LNG.favoritesLabel, aria-hidden: !@KEY_SCREEN_DESKTOP"
tabindex="4"> <span aria-hidden="true" data-html="@KEY_LNG.favoritesLabel"
style="display: none;"> </span></a>
According to Google – the aria-hidden bit just hides it from screen-readers, not browsers
Thanks for that Google research, Jeff! Any idea why the 'Favorites' labels aren't showing up in either of the places mentioned in the original thread?
I have already asked Willam to take a look but I do know he is very busy at
As for the second issue: What is the behaviour that you see? Does the title get obscured by links? How many favorites did you add for the problem to show?
Thanks Willam, for replying in the midst of an especially tight schedule!
Regarding the second issue: The issue occurs with two or three tagged favs or with none. The behavior is that the Favorites title itself does not appear--it's as if the color of the Favorites heading is the same as the background. Individual titles of favorite topics appear as you would expect (see below).
I think this problem has to do with the language file. On the front page of the Indigo Layout, do you see the welcome text? Or do you immediately get the search form?
In this case, can you try:
When you do this, the language file gets recreated and you should now see the text show up. (Not on the button though, that's a different issue.)
IF this fails, you can also create a new project and copy the !Language! folder over to your existing project. That should also update the language resource.
THANK YOU WvanW!!!
The steps you outlined did the trick to resolve issue #2. And your confirmation in your Mar 21 comment identifies issue #1 as a bug, which is reported to Adobe.
I have a few other issues with this new layout, but will log them separately after I have an orderly list.
Any specific guidance that you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
You should not have to modify the HTML.
But if you want to, there are two .SLP files. If you open them with Notepad++ or another text editor, you can find the menu and manually add text. But I believe this is fixed if you remove the language files and let RoboHelp restore them.
I am using a trial of RH 2017 and experiencing the same Favorites issues noted in this thread. I want to try the answer noted in William's post (11 in this thread), but I don't understand what the 'CPD' is in Step 4. What is the 'CPD'?
It refers to the your_project_name.cpd file in the project folder. It's safe to delete it because RH recreates it again if it's missing when you load the project.
Thanks Jeff. I tried out the solution and the results look good. It also fixed something I hadn't realized was missing. On the main/home page of help, there's now a 'Welcome to our Help Center' header and 'What can we help you with today?' sub-header above the Search field. That text wasn't showing up in output that I had generated before trying out the fix noted in this thread.
@Farrelly You said you are using the trial version. Many people think they will have downloaded the latest version with updates applied. It doesn't work that way so to File > Help and check you have 188.8.131.524. If not, apply the Updates.
Delete any layouts you have already tried and reselect them from the Gallery when you generate the responsive layout. You can leave the old ones if you have some reason. Just select the layout again and give it a slightly different name.
See www.grainge.org for free RoboHelp and Authoring information.
I just figured out how to resolve this one.
This is where you can name it to what every you want. Hope this helps.
