One thought to “RoboHelp (2015 release) – Update 3 released”

  1. We applied the update regenerated the help files and now have an issue.

    When a help window is opened in our html/javascript application, it opens in a new window, loads the content, and then closes immediately after.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
