Subject:em dash From:Stephanie Holland <SLHOLLAND -at- MICRON -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 25 Feb 1997 11:25:55 -0700
I realize this question might be better suited for the WinHelp list, but
I haven't received any mail from that list since Friday. I don't know
what's wrong, so I thought I'd post my question here as well.
Does anyone know if there's a way to create an em dash in a RoboHelp
file without using RoboHelp's bitmap of an em dash? We're using RoboHelp
I'd like to be able to use text instead of a bitmap. The Insert Symbols
method isn't working. The em dashes we think we're creating get turned
into vertical slash marks when we make the .doc file into a .hlp file.
Thanks in advance,
