I have a pdf file which I would like to link inside an html file. When I generate a pdf output, the link to a pdf should open the PDF. 

 

The PDF file is not on any ftp drive or internet. This file will be inside the same folder as the other pdf.

I think you just need to add the linked PDF to baggage. How you do that depends on your version but you haven't said which version of RoboHelp you are using. 

 

  • If you are using a Classic version please go to File Help > About and confirm the version shown. If it is 2019 Classic, please add "Classic" when advising the version number.
  • If you are using the New UI, the version number will  be found in Help > About. Please add "New UI" if the version number starts 14.

 

Please always include that when starting a thread.

Add the PDF as a baggage file in Project Manager.
