Hi guys,

I thought I'd have a look at scripting in Robohelp, unfortunately I've run into a problem.

I selected Tools > Scripts > New Script, which opened ESTK, then selected Adobe Robohelp 11 in the drop-down and clicked the broken link icon, which popped up the following message:

"Target Adobe RoboHelp 11 is not running. Do you want to launch Adobe RoboHelp 11? Yes/No"

Which is odd, because I opened ESTK from Robohelp.

Has anyone encountered this before or know what I've done wrong?

Robohelp version: 11.0.0.179

Thanks in advance.

I've seen this as well. I just close the ESTK and try again. Or close RH and open from the ESTK. It just isn't the most stable environment. (I prefer Notepad++ for coding. Just set syntax highlighting to JavaScript. I only run it frrom ESTK for debugging.)

Awesome. It worked that time. Possibly it might take a couple of attempts and a weekend break, for anyone reading this in future.
