Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Resolving broken links, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
When working with hyperlinks in a project, there's always the possibility of an…issue arising where maybe you're linking to a web site that no longer exists, or…maybe you're linking to a topic where the name has been changed, or even a…bookmark that no longer exists.…You'll end up with something known as a broken link, and there are ways to view…those broken links and to resolve them quickly here in RoboHelp. That's what we…are going to talk about right now, continuing with our How to Use LDC Flash…project, and we are looking at our Memberships topic.…
Now from here you can see there are a number of Links.…There are bookmarks, there are pop-ups, etc.…In the previous lesson, we knew that we could actually view those links by…just going to the topic itself in the Topic List, right-clicking, and choosing Show Topic Links.…There are no red lines here.…If we did see red lines, we would know there were broken links.…Another way we might know about broken links, if we close this up, is to look…at the Project Manager pod just below Project Files. There is a folder for Broken Links.…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
