As long as you don't need more than five or 10 build tags... any more than
that and you're hosed, because the build expression dialog does not display
all the tags you create. I reported this bug to e-help a while ago, and it's
logged as 4513.

If anyone has found any way to work around this limitation, I would love to
hear about it!

Robohelp gives you the ability to use build tags. So you can assign
specific build tags to each topic. For example, you could have topics that
have a "C++" tag, a "Java" tag or a "Common" tage. When you compile the
project you then tell it which build tags to include in the build.

Does that help?


"My client makes a software application that can be used with multiple
languages/platforms (Java, C, C++ for UNIX/LINUX/Windows and Visual Basic
for Windows). These products have a lot of information in common, so I'm
creating one master help file for all that information . But users will also
need procedures/information that are specific only to that
language/platform. Is there an easy way to do this without maintaining a
completely separate help file for each language? My client has specified
that they don't want users to see help that doesn't apply to the specific
product they're using."
