Two questions about RoboHelp 2019 search functionality for the Frameless output (using Orange skin). 

 

  1. Is it possible to configure (expand or contract) the number of characters displayed in the context provided below each topic title in search results? This is possible in RH2017 HTML5 Responsive output, but I can't seem to find it for this output in RH2019.
  2. It appears that RH2019 frameless output restricts search results to 20 topics. Is there a way to configure (expand or contract) this?

  1.  
  2. Not in the way it was done in Classic. There is the option of using Properties > Topic > Description but that involves creating the descriptions. You then tick a check box in the preset.
  3. Not that I can see either.

 

I have made some enquiries on both points.

Appreciate the tip on using the description as context, Peter. I'm probably not interested in that solution though - one of the things I noticed about search context in RH 2019 that I like is that it appears to use text with the first instance of the search term- whereas RH 2017 context is just the first X number of characters from the beginning of the topic. So I think RH 2019 is an improvement. 

 

Hoping there's a way - even if I have to manually edit some program files - to fine-tune the number of characters in context and to expand the number of search results beyond 20. Thanks for looking into this!

It is hoped both the issues you reported will be in the next update, which should be released in the next couple of weeks.

Also noticed this restriction to 20 search results in the frameless output. This number is quite low. Hopefully it will be made configurable or at least expanded in the future.
