Responsive HTML5 - Search Stripping Brackets () From Results

Okay, I have this weird issue using the search on a compiled responsive HTML5 doc... I'm writing techincal docs for a programming language, which means I have lines of code on the page like:


sprite_get_texture(spr_Background, 0);

 

However, using the example above, if I do a seacrh for the function sprite_get:texture, the results have the () stripped from them so it looks like this:

 

sprite_get_texture spr_Background, 0 ;

Here are is an image that illustrates the issue better:

You'll notice that it's stripping the brackets from ALL code in the page, not just the function that I'm searching.

 

I have NO idea why it's doing this, let alone how it can be fixed, so any help here would be appreciated!

Hello! Thank you for the quick reply! The problenm actually seems to have been resolved... After posting I saw the announcement for Robohelp 2019.014 and so I updated my version to that, rebuilt the documentaiton, and now it all works as it should (actually better as it has also resolved another issue I was having with search ignoring certain pages).

Awesome. I was going to suggest upgrading as I think there was a problem fixed in 2019 Update 9 or 10 but you might have been using RH2017 and it wouldn't have helped. 🙂
