Cannot find dead anchor link!

Unread post by Laini Giles »

Hello--

I am generating WebHelp for our file, and have done everything to try to find this dead anchor link that appears in the Compiler Messages.

I have changed the item to plain text, I've deleted it and recreated it, I've done lots of deleting of line returns, and cannot find this thing. I have a deadline today and I'm pulling my hair out.

Any suggestions for finding it? It's in a snippet, so it's affecting multiple topics.

I figured it out!

Never mind-- I just recreated the dead link name and that finally worked.

Hi Laini,

The easiest way to find things like this is to open the topic file or snippet file affected and then select the XML editor tab on the left of the main editor window. Click in the XML code to activate the XML editor, then press CTRL+F to search and you can then search for things like anchors and anchor references.
