Using External Topic Link

Unread postby alanmcd » Fri Nov 30, 2018 5:21 am

I'm using PP Lime Green skin and CHM output.
I've tried inserting an External Topic Link
The TOC entry is made the project compiles OK (without error)
But when you click on the TOC entry, the topic does not show.
The next previous buttons skip over the inserted TOC topic entries. from the one prior to the one after. When you click on the topic, it remains on the previously selected topic

I've tried the skin Navigation Table f Contents settings On load expand and single click - they make no difference.

How do you make external links visible

If I wanted to edit one topic file and have it included in two separate projects/CHMs, what choices do I have?

trying...

I have a CommonTopics Project. It's a Snippet project.
I have one snippet linking to another.
I have now placed both snippets into topics of a help project (CHM PP LimeGreen skin)
How do I make the link work? i.e. it fails to compile because it can't find the topic (message: ... references undefined topic: "blah blah"

I've tried placing an anchor but still no link. Is it possible at all?
Just trying make the snippets a little more linked up internally
