Rh hyperlink options for imported FM cross references

Our Rh projects use linked FrameMaker books. Cross-references in the Fm files are converted to hyperlinks in Rh. I'm looking at the hyperlink properties in Rh and see options for how the link behaves. But the cross-refs are always set to the Page Default. I can change the settings one hyperlink at a time, but when I update the linked Fm file the hyperlinks are all replaced.

Is there a way to set these properties during the Fm import process? For example, making an imported x-ref open in a "auto resizing popup"?

Are the links in FM xrefs or hyperlinks? I think the only way you can play with how the resulting links end up in RH is if you use the hyperlink command.

They are x-refs in Framemaker. So the reference internal content. I don't think there's a way in Framemaker to hyperlink to internal content. But assuming there is, how can I control the options for Fm hyperlinks in Rh?

I don't use them, but I think you have to use Named Destinations to point the hyperlink command to. What do you want the link to look like in the RH output? Maybe it would be easier to post-process your output?

We typically put our images in anchored frames, inline with the content. But in this project many of the images are referenced from multiple places. So we're wanting to consolidate the images into one place in the project then cross reference them in the content. To help with navigation in the HTML5 output from Rh we'd like the referenced image to open in a popup. Then the reader can close close the popup and they are still at the same spot in the content. Otherwise the reader would need to "go back" every time they reference an image.
