Hi All,

I need your help!

I was asked to convert the user manuals to online help (called WebHelp in RoboHelp) which can be accessed on Internet. One of the specific requirements is to provide a search scope setting which allows users to select which help files to search. Because all user manuals (10 all together), though converted separately as individual help files, will be merged into the master help. The final help will contain thousands of topics. The search scope setting can help users narrow the search results. I found a good example of it at:, but I guess it's implemented using Eclipse platform.
My question is: does RoboHelp offer similar search scope setting and how to enable it? I have searched on Internet and RoBohelp central, but I had no luck. If it's impossible with RoboHelp, what are the possibilities and how to do it?
