    When are you planning to fix the Responsive Layout issues that were introduced with this update?

    Multiple posts on the Adobe Forum have reported that TOC/Index/Glossary/Filter icons that are hidden in the screen layout are appearing in the Responsive HTML5 output.

    Can you please provide a list of the files modified in Robohelp 2015 update 4? I am seeing an issue with IE11 and Robohelp 2015.

    In IE11 the help opens, but there is an additional small blank window that also it opens along with it. It does not display on the main screen, but when you close the help window, then that small window displays on the main screen and the user has to manually close it. I am not seeing this issue in IE10. I have posted this issue on the Adobe Webhelp Forum and have not had a response yet.

    RoboHelp Version
    IE 11 version 11.0.9600.18426
    Using Windows 7
