Subjects in the projects children are open in a new window.


I have a merged html of the project that produces a Microsoft html (chm) file.  The 'window' in the main project is a "Webhelp Pro".  The 'window' in the child projects is "HTML Help" windows.  Is there a way I can change the type of window in my projects so that they are consistent, and when a user selects a topic in one of the child projects it will not create a new window?

Thank you


Hi Steve

The type of window, you see in the Windows area depends on what is on the main page layout. Well, any.

Really what I'm saying here is that if you choose to create a new window, it will be the type which is the main page layout. You probably set up Microsoft HTML Help as your main page, and then set a new window. At this point, you should see a CHM window properties.

See you soon... Rick

  • Since the update files now open in a new window and pinned tabs open all in the folder.

    Since the last update, now instead of simply to open a new page in the same tab when I click on a link, it opens a new tab. I also have a pinned favorite links folder, before I just click on it and scroll down to my link desired, since the update whenever I click on the folder, it just opens it in the folder. How can I fix it and God good, why cannot it be an option that stops updates to immediately change the previous settings like this done.

    I scrolled the basic options and couldn't find any way to address these changes, there are now very few options for tabs and pins.

    Yes problem seems to have resolved this self, probably a problem of update or something.

  • Windows 7 laptop - files are open in a new window despite "open in the same window" is selected under "Tools" folder options

    This seems to have started randomly out of the blue and it's quite annoying. When you work with folders, I end up having a bunch of files that need to be closed and I usually don't want to close all; I usually have to sort numeorus files open to find what I'm looking for, as opposed to easily using the back button to return to a folder I want. I have not downloaded programs. The only thing I can think is deleting browser explore because I never use it (it is incredibly slow and slows down my computer laptop while each opening by mistake) and i ' LD fashioned just get rid of it.

    How I deleted the browser explore:

    -I went to control panel, then programs, then display the updates installed and then uninstalled IE from here

    I looked everywhere on the internet, but I can't talk about what most of these solutions. Some people are proposing the deletion of the registry files. I know that these files are really important and I don't want to delete anything and cause a big problem for me.

    Some of the solutions use language I don't understand; they give you a solution and a lot of people claim that it works, but how run the solution is not explained; If this is not enough. I assume that the solutions are designed for people who are good with computers, but I'm not, so if you are answering this, explain your solution in words that even a baby would be able to follow the instructions. Please do not automatically assume that I know where something is and leave out of your explanation, because chances are, I'm not.

  • folder on the external drive does not open in a new window

    on iMac OS 10.10.5, when I open a folder (by double-clicking) on an external drive, the folder does not open in a new window, but in a window that replaces the window that was opened.  I looked for a system setting that controls this (in system PREF), but I couldn't find anything useful.

    If you control - click the folder there is an option to open in a new tab. I don't know of anyway to set up in system preferences.

  • Mobile link bug? (opening in a new window the value window)

    I put the link on mobile in the same window, but 98% of the time that it opens in a new window. I tried to make the road to the problem and it's driving me buggy.
    What is happening on the iPhone tests.
    I tried many methods, such as linking them directly to the version of the phone and the substitution of detection devices of Muse, with no luck.
    So I thought that maybe the iPhone default to opening links in a new window when the site is not fully charged. And that sometimes seems to happen however the device indicates that the site is loaded.

    Anyone else notice this behavior?

    Thank you.

    Solved the problem. Don't think that Muse would have such a glaring bug with one report (that's me). Then, of course, the thought goes to the third-party widget and lay the problem. I am posting this for someone else who might encounter the problem.

    This issue is included in the 123muse 'of assistance to Web Page' widget under the PHONE ONLY of PAGES when you check Web App Capable. A great pi when you want to get rid of the IOS header & footer, so that your design looks like what you designed. However the caveat being that all the links will open in a new window, no matter what you set AND you get back to the previous page (on IOS devices) because even if the link opens a new page of your original page is lost. Tested on iPhone 4, 5, 6, 6plus.

    Huge loss of conversion and / or company.

    I hope that the team big 123muse will see this and fix the widget because I do not know that it is clear to this side effect other than the statement...

    "If it's a single page site then the whole site will be a bit like an app in the iPhone or Android itself... »

  • project sporadically opens in a new window, instead of the tab


    Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I was not able to find this on the Internet or on this forum topic. I apologize in advance if it has been resolved.

    I have always go and often open my projects in my office.

    When I was Captivate 6.0, he would open a window and then, for each project, it would open a tab.

    After the update to Captivate 8, everytime I open a project, Captivate is still open in a separate/new window for each project!

    Is there a way to tell Captivate to ALWAYS OPEN NEW PROJECT in the current window, but the different tab?

    I tried to open a project in the menu bar (file > open > Select project), and still, it opens in a new window.

    Thank you for your time.


    Hi Eric

    In fact, I'm rather surprised to hear that any version of Captivate would simply open projects recurrence in the same instance, but in different tabs. New windows are what I fully expect if the plans to open by double-clicking them just from the office.

    I would never advise people to function in this way. My personal opinion is to open by Captivate to open first, then using the file > open (or Ctrl + O in Lilybiri jobs).

    If you feel that it must operate differently, please consider filing a bug report using the link below.

  • folder opens in a new window after update, but the options are correct


    After a few updates to Vista in the past two days, each folder now opens in a new window.

    The problem is: the folder options are correct. They are set to "open each folder in the same window. So I guess this is a new bug in Vista.

    Y at - it someone here with the same problems and maybe a solution?

    You can try to restore Windows back to a previous working state, and then disabling the updates so that it works this way.

    Step 1: To restore Windows to a previous state (before defective updates): (open the link and follow the instructions).

    Step 2: To disable the automatic updates (so the update defective will not be reinstalled): (in step 3, select 'Off').

    WARNING: It is not recommended and sometimes even dangerous to disable automatic updates, because they improve the security and reliability of Windows. If the procedures above solves your problem, this means that an update was the likely cause.

    Please report back with your results. Then we can reactivate the automatic updates, but block the update that causes this problem.

  • My tabs still open in a new window, even after the deselection of this option, how to fix this?

    Whenever I try to load a new tab in the same window, Firefox opens a new window. I went through the process of de-selection 'open tabs in a new window', but it does not work. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled, but no difference.

    There are two common reasons for this problem:

    (1) site uses a script that launches the window, and there parameters such as height and width, or restrictions such as no scroll bar. In these cases, Firefox assumes it's a dialog box associated with the page and always use a new window. (Is there a substitution for that I will mention later.)

    (2) if the page you are looking at is in a dialog, Firefox is perhaps not ready to open a new tab in this window. Usually in this case the tab bar is missing or does not have the button «+» But if you open a new window using Ctrl + n and then links should work normally.

    To force same scripted popups in a tab, you can change a setting under the covers.

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste link.o and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) in this case, see zero adjustment (B). The others are here for future reference:


    3 = divert new window into a new tab (by default) (checked *)
    2 = allow the link to open a new window (uncontrolled *)
    1 = new power window in the same tab

    * First check box in the Options > tabs

    (B) -for links in Firefox tabs

    0 = apply the setting under (A) to all new windows (same script)
    2 = apply the setting under (A) for normal windows, but NOT for windows script with characteristics (default)
    1 = override the setting under (A) and always use new windows

    (C) -for links in other programs

    -1 = apply the setting under (A) external links (default)
    3 = open external links in a new tab in the last active window
    2 = open external links in a new window
    1 = open external links in the last active tab replaces the current page

  • Some Images open in a new window or tab are backwards or rotated 90 degrees,

    Some Images open in a new window or tab are backwards or rotates 90 degrees, but they appear in the correct position when you use Internet EXPLORER.

    I don't even know if it's a browser or a browser-server interaction problem. The problem manifests a certain user forums where members post jpg images that appear as thumbnails. "I can right-click and select"Open in new window"or open in a new tab. Either way some images open OK, some open pivot 90 degrees out of position sometimes upside down. If I use Internet EXPLORE the same images will open on the right side.
