I am using RoboHelp 2019. I don't understand why the body of a snippet will not appear when inserted in a topic. Instead, it only appears as a hyperlink.
On a different topic, the body of the snippets appears correctly when I drag and drop them. I don't know what the difference is and how to get the body of the snippet appear correctly on all topics.
Are you all patched up? Check Help > Updates to check. Are you adding snippets in different ways on each topic?
Thank you, Jeff. I am using a trial version until the company licenses and installs our corporate copy. I did the update as you suggested and now the snippets appear correctly when dragged and dropped. Preupdate version: 14.0.12, Post update: 2019.0.12.
Trial is the same as the "real" thing - it just expires. You still have to apply patches even if you just downloaded it fresh today.
I have to report that I don't think that updating was responsible for the snippets not appearing correctly. Soon after I updated, I got the same behavior: snippets appearing as hyperlinks; not the body of associated text.
I think I see what the problem is....
I was dragging-and-dropping the snippet into a topic that did not have any space at the bottom (no return). In this state a blue arrow ("insert paragraph here") marker appears at the bottom of the topic. It seems the snippet appears as a hyperlink in these cases.
All I did was insert a return, then drag in the snippet into the topic. Then, the body of the snippet appeared.
