Hi Deborah,

I've had that problem with RoboHelp as well. Any text in a drop-down is
usually ignored in a search.

I've worked around it by creating a new page for the content and then
linking to it so that the page displays inside the drop-down. The result is
that the content can now be found in a search.

Be seeing you,

*Hi All,

Does anyone know if it is possible to search for ALL drop-down hotspots
used in a RoboHelp Project? If yes, how?
