External links lost when generating HTMLHelp

I have a help system modular big in 2000 with Word 2003 and RoboHelp's WinHelp X5.0.1, and I look at the possibility of converting this system to HTMLHelp. I realize that I will need to convert these projects RoboHTML and implemented the modular system of HTML in the converted projects.

However, all my attempts to convert projects always result in lost while links. Of course, I want to convert them into external links HTMLHelp and I chose this option for external issues, but even if I chose to keep, the result is the same if I chose to delete: no sign of a link just in the generated HTML code.

External links are macros by a code that looks like:! JC('test2.hlp',123)

Projects, I work with are very old and have a lineage that is complicated, but I tried to make a new test project that contains nothing other than a link like the one above, and it still happens. It happens when I generates HTMLHelp of RoboHelp classic, and also when I import the WinHelp project into a new project in RoboHTML.

Other research shows that jumps by topic ID work as expected. Although the card numbers carry in the converted projects, it seems that RoboHelp does not seek to reconnect these jumps by card number for card of HTML Help numbers in the converted projects.

With a mess of screenwriting at the first collects all the help file/map ID number/subject of through the help system, and then to find and replace all the JC jumps jumps JI referring to the correct topic ID, I can do this job now.

  • How to store relative links when generating PDFs?

    I have a Word document with hypertext links.  When I generate a PDF, it makes these absolutes.  It doesn't matter how to generate the pdf file (save as pdf, print to PDF, using Macromedia for Word 2010, or open acrobat pro and conversion in this way).  How to preserve links to external files?

    The only recommendation I have is to use an external tool to convert files of absolute links to those related.

  • Videos to pause when you open an external link

    Hi, we have a scorm course that has integrated Vimeo videos, using the web object and it works very well, also on the same page\slide we have links to external resources.

    What we demanded, that is when the learner clicks on an external link he paused the video, no matter what ides on how we can do this?

    Thank you very much

    Jamies salvation,

    Unfortunately, Captivate is unable to send commands to web objects, then you will not be able to implement a command which pauses for the video (frustrating, right?).

    My only suggestion would be to put your external resource on a transparent section,


    Set it so the hyperlink executes a tip rather than just the link action and place so the advanced action opens the link and hides the web object / moves on a holding slide.

    I hope this helps! I appreciate it is not a good solution.

  • I've migrated the FF settings to a new PC and no external link now opens

    A few days I received my new PC and migrate all important data of the former using a special tool to W8. I also installed Thunderbird and FF anew and migrated their setting using the tools recommended here (FF + MozBackup Sync). And all of a sudden I lost the ability to open any external link in FF now regardless of the source (Thunderbird or any other piece of software). Now, I have to copy and paste the URL manually. It is not the best solution. Old PC OS: Vista Business, new PC operating system: W8.1. Thanks in advance.

    Hi people, I got tired of manually entering the URL addresses and decided to go back a few steps. So I uninstalled about half of the programs installed (including FF and Thunderbird) and reinstalled them again. And now everything works as expected. It's a kind of magic for me. In any case thank you for your advice, even copy - paste.

  • audio is lost when the video is imported in windows live movie maker but works when it is open in windows media player.

    audio of my video is lost when I import into windows live movie maker, but can be heard when played in media player. video is from jvc camcorder handy, file type is: MOD (video clip)

    Just because a file is played in Windows Media Player
    does not ensure that it will be compatible with the film

    Maker. Might be worth trying to convert MOD files
    before you import into Movie Maker WMV format.

    Perhaps the following links will propose a few ideas:

    Use. MOD with Windows Movie Maker files

    How to edit JVC. MOD files in a few easy steps

    How to convert AVI files to Movie Maker MOD files

    There are many programs that can do conversions...
    The following freeware is an example...:

    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    Format Factory
    (the 'direct link' is faster)
    (the file you want to download is: > FFSetup260.zip<>
    (FWIW... installation..., you can uncheck
    ('all' boxes on the last screen)

    First, you will need to decompress the file or just open the
    Drag FFSetup260.exe out of the folder
    and drop it on your desktop. To install left click.

    Next, after the download and installation of Format
    Factory... you can open the program and
    left click on the toolbar, the "Option" button and
    "Select an output folder to" / apply / OK.
    (this is where you find your files after they)
    are converted)

    Drag and drop your video clips on the main screen...

    Select "all to WMV" / OK...

    Click on... Beginning... in the toolbar...

    That should do it...

    Good luck...

  • ADF disabling cookies breaking external links in Application

    Greetings, community!

    I use jDev 12.1.3.

    There is a problem with the cookies and jSessionId in the ADF. As far as I understand when I disable cookies for project in the Web.XML file of ViewController ADF start jSessionId parameter in the URL and keep everything works fine, except for external links. ADF inserts jSessionId in the random location of the link.

    component "Standart" "link". TargetFrame = _blank, destination (for example) "google.com" becomes gojSessionId = randomthingsogle.com. Is there something I missed in the options?

    Well, after a few manipulations, I find a solution. It uses javascript in the 'Destination' of the Link element.

    Writing javascript:window.open ('url'); works very well.

    Thanks in advance.

    The link works within the FM (hold the button ctrl + alt and click on the link)? If this does not work there, then your path information is not correct. Also, I think you might need to use the path in quotes because of the space in the folder name - FM has a heritage of unix and is a little sensitive on the paths and file names.

    Where the links are pointing to in the PDF file (use the Acrobat link tool > properties when you select the link area)?

  • Can I use external links to my pictures? BC supports this feature? If so, please give me a solution for this.

    Can I use external links to my pictures? BC supports this feature? If so, please give me a solution for this.

    There is no need to make several posts on this.

    First you must understand how the web works. When you visit a website, your computer downloads the images, it's cache, it stores images, load the images and presents them. This is the basic concept.

    All Web sites can incorporate an image from another website, including BC.
    What you say does not concern if you can hotlink on BC or not... That is until you are actually doing. You mention a CSV file so that you have a web application with custom image and by the CSV field putting external URLS?

    What is an example of the url you put in? -C' maybe is incorect or in a bad way

    What is the configuration of the layout of the web application? -It can not do it in a way to manage the external URL...

    There are several things that could be wrong, then you really need to expand on things, please.

    If I add another web page, it works fine, it shows my menu of the portal on top when the banner is, menu,

    and the Web site below. But when I add an external link to show my application, it doesn't show anything, just

    white white background. I also noticed, it happens if I add google website also.

    On Mac, it is included in the framework.
