Hello everyone,

I'm writing a HTML5-Help with filters and in RH2017 I defined a preselected filter, e.g. you have the filter option "iOS" and "Windows" and I defined activeted filter "Windows" by default. This worked with RH2017.

After the upgrade to RH2019 I don't see the option to define a preselection of the filter. Is this option removed in RH2019 or do I just don't find it in the new UI?

Thanks for your help.

I believe your filter is an expression rather than a condition tag, correct?

If so, expressions are no longer supported for Dynamic Content Filtering. See the RoboHelp Reimagined sample project or the RoboHelp Tour on my site.

I can only suggest you request reinstatement by submitting a feature request.

Please follow this link to report bugs and request features. The more people who do so, the higher it gets prioritised.

https://tracker.adobe.com

Post the link to that request in this thread and others can vote for it.

It is available in 2019 Classic if that helps.

Thank you for the really fast answer.

The filter is just on tags. For example I added two screenshots to the content - one with the iOS and another with the windows menu. Both images are tagged and by the set filter then only one of the two graphics should be displayed.

Is it possible to use the new features (git integraten etc.) with the RH2019 classic?

OK so the issue is simply with preselection of the filter. I haven't looked into that and right now I am not able to. If no one else can respond, perhaps it would be worth asking Adobe Support.

It's best to ask unrelated questions in a separate thread but no you cannot mix and match features. 2019 and 2019 Classic work on very different code.

Oops. I was forgetting that setting a tag as a default had been built in as an option rather than having to call the help with a custom URL as earlier.

Yes that does seem to have been omitted in 2019. The answer then is the same, follow that link to get it added back in.
