Popup and dropdown link concepts: RoboHelp 2015 Essential Training

Although hyperlinks are widely used, they have one drawback – jumping the user from topic A to topic B breaks the continuity of the information in the starting topic. This can be a problem if the user is reading a series of steps that describe how to perform some task, only to follow a link and lose the continuity of the steps. Popups and dropdowns keep users in the main topic and fetch the target information in a window that pops open or a section of the screen that stretches down. Learn the difference between popups and dropdowns and see how to easily and quickly create them.
