Using: RoboHelp 2019, Update 1
I am having trouble working with the Pop-up Hyperlinks. Maybe these should be in different posts, but I'll list them here to start since I think they are all related:
Not at a PC right now but try selecting the link and looking in Properties
on the right.
Thanks for the reply Peter. I don't see anything hyperlink related in Properties bar. When I double-click a regular hyperlink a Link To window/form pops up. But I don't see any options for the pop-up formatting or editing.
Oh wait...now i see it.
I should have waited on my reply. For anyone else who may happen upon this post, it is kind of tricky compared to previous versions. I used to double-click to launch the hyperlink form, and that still works for traditional ones that display in their own frame, but the Display Options are now in the Properties bar and it the double-click doesn't work open the form for pop-ups.
Furthermore, to select a pop-up link for editing in the Properties bar, you can't highlight the whole text. As soon as I highlight the whole thing the Properties just shows 'text'. You have to just be clicked somewhere in the link text or have only some of it selected. That's why I wasn't seeing it at first.
In order to create a new hyperlink as a pop-up, you have to first create a standard link using the Link To form, click Link, and then select part of the link to activate the Properties bar to then make the Display Option as pop-up.
Lastly, I still need some assistance on why the pop-up boxes are not auto-sizing correctly.
Elaborating a bit on what Auroraxmp has noted.
There is definitely a bug in the link command whereby the Link properties do not show up or expand when the Link icon is clicked in the toolbar. I got it to work by creating a link and then double-clicking the link in the authoring pane. This brings up the "Popover" properties with the usual options we have come to expect in the older versions of RoboHelp. I like the new preview-in-place feature: From here, if you click on the Preview icon (top right) you can test it without having to generate the project.

Seems the "secret sauce" to reliably seeing the hyperlink properties is to first click the Hyperlink/Popover options at the top of the editor.
I'll look in the morning. Late here.
