I am using TCS 5 with unstructured FrameMaker and RH in a Win7 64-bit environment and recently upgraded to TSC5 2015; currently using FM 13.02.433 and RH 12.02.284. I have source FM books linked to RH and generating MS HTML hlp, Webhelp and pdf.
For the first time I upgraded a chm project and source files from FM 2012 and RH 11 to 2015 version and compiled and suddenly there are many issues with the chm file even though the only thing that is different is minor content changes in the FrameMaker source files. Very disappointing! The newer tools are supposed to create less issues not more. I managed to resolve some issues but there are more to be discussed in separate posts.
In this post I am asking for help with Go to URL hypertext in MS HTML help
So, issue 1:
None of our web links (Go to URL hypertext) open in a new window any more, i.e. they “don’t launch a browser and display the specified Web page” as GO to URL is supposed to do. They open in the chm window which is pointless.
So, please recommend a syntax that might work, or is this functionality no longer available for MS HTML help (CHM files) with Robohelp 2015?
For some web links I get the following error messages in a loop, i.e. clicking OK in the error message displays it over and over again.
Please help. I am before product release and at this point the solution I can think of is downgrading my FM files to FM 2012 and try to use the old RH 11 project as the HTML help generated with it was error-free in many ways that the current chm is not. However, this is not a viable solution for the future and not sure even short-term that it will work.
Post-processing of the links in Robohelp is not an option as the links are many and that defeats the purpose of single-sourcing.
