Suppression of pop-ups in .pdf

Postby henkjans on Tue Feb 26, 2019 1:12 am

Hi there,
I use 2 targets for one and the same Flare project.
Main use target is DotNet help. In this Help I use popups.
Second, I want to generate a .pdf from the same project.
Popups do not work now and a error message pops up.
Is there some kind of setting to prevent popups to become active in the .pdf? Or even suppress the error message?
Thanks,

If you look at the Madcap Flare help you will see popups are supported in all of the online help formats but not at all in pdf.
You need to style the popup text for the print medium so that it is displayed in the flow of text (if it is text you want to see there).
This is where online and pdf conditions may be needed, to do different things in the two types of output. Style popups as online only (excluded in pdf) and your alternative as pdf only (excluded from the online build).

I use a different set of style for both the DotNet and PDF output.
You wrote to use styles to manage the use of popups in the pdf.
Please help me out here, where do I set (or suppress) the popups in the pdf?

Open your PDF target.
Go to the Advanced tab.
You'll see that the Stylesheet medium is set to Print.
Beneath that there is a section called Text popup effects.
You have the option to:
- convert the text popups to footnotes
- expand the text inline
- remove the popup content

This section in the help covers it:

Hope that helps.
Regards,
