Problems with Help&Manual import to Flare

Postby kwilson_eze on Thu Apr 04, 2019 12:38 pm

Hi I recently imported our Help&Manual content to Flare, but have run into some issues I'm hoping someone here can help me with.

1. All numbered and bulletted lists were imported as tables. Does anyone know a trick for getting lists out of tables and into lists?
2. The import created extra div tags, so essentially every element got put in a div tag. So it goes HTML > Body > Div >Div>P or HTML > Body > Div >Div>Div>Table. Is there a way to get rid of the extra div tags?
3. Topic Titles in Properties got imported as their location. For example: Security and Pricing > Pricing > Downloading price data > Downloading index member weights. The last part is the topic title, everything before is the folders you have to go through to get to that topic. Is there a bulk way to fix this? It messes up how the TOC looks.

what did you use for sources to Import from Help&Manual?

I suggest to start Import with a hhp-result* that is created as simple as possible, means without a Skin and breadcrumbs.
I assume that this comes without the div issue into Flare.
* If you do not have the hhp-file you can try to import chm directly.
Kind regards,
