Anchor keywords displaying in snippet

Unread postby hubby2laura » Wed Aug 21, 2019 7:48 pm

When compiling into eWriter and HTMLHelp, if a snippet contains anchors, the anchor keywords are displaying within the snippet when the snippet displays. As highlighted in red in the example below, when Credit category is clicked to display the snippet, the snippet displays, but the anchor keywords (in red) also display.

This did not happen with H&M V4. Current version: 7.51. Build 4713

There seems to be some confusion here: Snippets are not something you can "click to display". I think you are actually referring to drop-down text toggles. Also, keywords attached to anchors are never stored with anchors in the output HTML, so it would not be possible for anything to be displayed there with the anchor. There must be something else here.

We need to have a look at a project containing a topic like this to see what is going on here. Please mail a small demo project with just a couple of topics illustrating the issue to support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @) and we will check it out for you. :)
