Title: Links in Frames
Post by jmill15 on Sep 22nd, 2005, 9:36am
I am trying to have an index page in a frame on the left side of my screen and when clicking on an item it opens on the right side in a frame.  I need to know how to have multiple pages linked together for a certain topic but still have them open in that right hand frame.  For instance, I have a topic that i click on  in the left hand side which is the index.  It opens in the right frame.  At the end of that page I want to continue with another page for that same topic but i want it to open up in that same frame.  Please help!!!

Within that page, define the link to the next page with (select a text block) Insert >Special link, then second tab, then "in current window, replaces caller page".
This way the page in the right frame will be replaced with the other page that will remain within the right frame.

I guess you have already read the Tutorial "How to create a left frame menu" (available if you hit F1 then click Tutorials).

Also the PDF manual has a chapter "Frames" with images and interesting examples that you may follow...

Yes I had already read the whole manual and played with the software for hours.  I did finally figure out how to do exactly what you said about replacing the caller page.  Thanks for the help though.

That's fine.

It is a basic "special link" (
You can as well change a frame, show a popup window, open a new browser window...
