Search not expanding toggle

Unread postby tinat » Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:03 pm

Hi,
When searching in HTML Help, the toggles aren't expanding on the page where the search term is found. The search is taking me to the correct page, but I have to expand all of the topics to find where it is located.

Using H&M 7
Version 7.3.4 Build 4380
PP Version 3.41
Thanks, Tina

Thanks for the reference. I just checked this and all skins are affected, including the standard skins in Help+Manual. What seems to have happened is that there has been a silent change in the way that the Microsoft CHM system is applying the highlighting in search results, and as a result the script in the skin is no longer finding the search highlights.

This is a problem resulting from a change outside of Help+Manual and our skins. We'll look into this and update it as soon as possible, but we probably need to do a lot of testing to make sure it also remains compatible with older system.

Hi Tina,

Thank you for posting this! It was just in time -- I've located the problem and fixed it in the CHM skins in the Premium Pack and the fix will be included in the 3.42 update to be released shortly. Fixes for the standard skins in Help+Manual will be coming in the next maintenance update of the main program.
