|Issues from RH 6 Release|
|1431933|| Acrobat 7 or 8 is custom installed without PDFMakers
The Generate Adobe PDF check box on Printed Documentation SSL will be disabled because RoboHelp 7 depends on PDFMakers for Adobe PDF generation. If you have installed Acrobat 7 or higher, RoboHelp 7 will not install Acrobat Elements 7, which includes PDFMakers.
|1336440|| Junk character appears in the tabs label of the generated HTML help
If a specified window has tab position set to left while generating HTML help (.chm), the "&" character precedes the caption name in all tabs of the generated CHM. You must use Top or Bottom as tab position while creating a new window for HTML Help Projects.
|1429037|| Indentation is not maintained properly in a list in Word document after importing it to RHTML
If a Microsoft Word document has lists with customized indentation and you import it into RoboHelp HTML, the indentation will be changed to default spacing (36 points). However, you can manipulate the spacing in the style sheet after importing the Word file into RoboHelp HTML.
|1412063|| Cannot checkout a file/topic from RoboHTML if property "Checkout Comment required " is set for that file/topic
If you want comment functionality during checkout/checkin of a file or topic, set following options explicitly:
|1412366/1429876|| Limitations of "Mark of The Web"
|1338237|| Cannot publish WebHelp/FlashHelp through HTTP
To publish projects to an IIS HTTP server other than RoboHelp Server, the HTTP server root folder must contain the /scripts/cpshost.dll file. A Windows system does not contain this file, by default. You can download the file from the Microsoft web site.
|1388087|| 128-bit RC4 compatible Security settings are shown for a 1.3 version PDF
If you choose PDF settings for version 1.3, the Security Settings show 128 bit encryption instead of 40-bit encryption.
|1414871|| Help button in Web Admin works only from RoboHelp
The Help button in the Web Admin page of RoboHelp Server works when you click the RoboHelp Server tab of RoboHelp. The same Web Admin page does not function when it is accessed through a browser.
|1424540|| RoboSource Control Server Database Configuration Manager options for entries
The following information is required to create a RoboSource Control 3 database:
|1397378|| Unable to connect to database server from RoboSource Control Server Configurator on Win2K
The .Net Data provider requires MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) version 2.6 or later. User can download MDAC from http://msdn.microsoft.com/data/ref/mdac/downloads/
If you have uninstalled RoboSource Control 1 without removing the database and have already installed RoboSource Control 3, you can still install RoboSource Control 1 and migrate your data to RoboSource Control 3 by using the RoboSource Convert Wizard. To access the wizard, click Start -> Programs -> RoboSource Control 3 -> RoboSource convert Wizard.
These are some critical problems and issues that were known to occur in RoboHelp 6 or earlier and have been resolved in release 7.
