Hello Folks --
I'm developing a help system for a browser-based application, using
Robo X5. Been a couple of yrs since I've used it, and there's a lot
of new functionality.
Specifically Web- and Flash-. I would very much like to have pictures
appearing in a secondary window --which I've defined in the project --
when I click on hotspot text in a topic.
Thing is, the placement of the secondary window is not anywhere near
the coordinates I've specified. It just seems to come up a few pixels
over, instead of up in the corner, as I'd like it. Works OK in
a .CHM. Not in web- or Flash-.
In the same vein, the hyperlink properties for these hotspots don't
reference the secondary window that I defined -- I get a choice of
New Window, Same Frame ...etc.
