Frameless Output | Anchors and MiniToc do not work in tables

Hello,

 

I am trying to solve an issue with the Frameless output. It seems that HTML anchors like <a id="foo"></a> do not work properly when the anchor is in a table cell. This also affects headings in a table cell that would be part of the mini-TOC in the right panel. 

 

I have tested this in the RoboHelp Reimagined project. Here are the steps I used:

  1. Open the RoboHelp Reimagined project
  2. Open any topic sufficiently long that you need to scroll to see contents
  3. Insert a two row table "below the fold" so that it is not visible when you first open the topic in generated output, but not so far down that it's at the very bottom of the page
  4. In the first row, insert an H2 with arbitrary text
  5. In second row, insert any text and use the Insert Bookmark button on the editing toolbar to insert any book mark below the text; give the bookmark an arbitrary name (e.g., foo)
  6. Select arbitrary text at the top of the topic to link to the bookmark you just created
    Example: <a href="#foo">Text</a>
  7. Genearte Frameless output
  8. Test the mini-ToC to go to the H2; obeserve that the top of the page displays instead of the relevant heading
  9. Test the link you created to your bookmark; observe that the top of the page displays instead of the anchor location
  10. Generate Responsive HTML5 output and perform the same tests; note that this works as expected

 

Any suggestions as to how to get anchors to work properly inside tables for Frameless output?

I'm aware of the bookmark in a table issue and have already reported it. I hadn't picked up on the headings not showing in the minitoc and will add that.

 

For the bookmark issue the only "solution" is to put the bookmark above the the table.

Thank you for the response.

 

The minitoc issue is that the headings do show in the minitoc, but they do not jump to the correct section. It is probably the same root cause as the bookmark/anchor issue, since I think the minitoc is adding custom anchors during output generation. At least, that seems to be the case when you hover over the entries in the minitoc and look at the destination URL in Chrome.
