Known Issues and Bug Fixes in 7.3.5

  • PDF: a few minor problems fixed – keyword references sometimes not clickable, font embedding problem with TrueType fonts, page referrers not aligned properly when using the PDF/A option. Two minor glitches in the manual designer have been solved as well.
  • HTML Help/CHM: internal script has been updated to fix the problem that full-text search words contained in text toggles did not expand the toggle objects automatically.
  • Find & Replace: when searching for images, the found and selected image was sometimes not visible, but outside the viewport.
  • Topic Editor: Copy & paste of multiple table cells had slowed down the topic editor after mulitple paste operations. Protected text was difficult to read if the protected text span multiple words on a justified paragraph.
  • Custom topic status:  when changing the text of a custom status, the change is now propagated to topics as well.
  • Feature images: when a feature image was missing, the publishing report did not report an error and the reference for the missing image was still included
  • Project Report: to function to move unused images to a backup folder did not work if the list of images was very long
