Important Announcement:

I am "archiving" the HyperTexas website and asking my loyal visitors to go to my new site, where I will be updating more frequently. Since 1993, I'm proud to have participated in the growth of the WWW and will devote more time to creating fresh and relevant content for both Adobe RoboHelp and Adobe Captivate at the new site. I wanted to keep this site up for archival purposes, so it will remain indefinitely.

Warning: This content is here for archive purposes and covers older versions of RoboHelp

  3. Merger Checklist featuring Source Code and examples of using ALink, Related Topics and Shortcut controls as well as interfile links.
