Hi all, I am trying to create a link from my PDF documents (generated in
Frame 6.0) to particular topics in my online help file (generated in
RoboHelp 8.0/9.0). I can't figure it out. I tried performing calls to
WINHELP.EXE -n101 test.hlp as described at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q115/1/83.asp, using the
Message Client hypertext command in Frame. The result is that winhelp
doesn't recognize any help file compiled as WinHelp 4, but works fine on
WinHelp 3. All of my stuff is WinHelp 4.
Does anyone know how to make this work? Or, does anyone know where to get
more comprehensive information about the hypertext commands available in
Frame? I've tried Frame tech support - those guys know NOTHING about
creating links. They didn't even know you could create a mailto: link. And
(just my luck) the FrameUsers group is being redeveloped right now, so I
can't get any help there :-(
Anything you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
