Subject:Context Sensitive Help From:Jim Barrow <vrfour -at- verizon -dot- net> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Thu, 31 Aug 2006 17:18:58 -0500 (CDT)
I need to implement context-sensitive help and have a question (WebWorks Pro 2003/FrameMaker 7.1).
My FrameMaker documentation is complete for an application has many screens and a toolbar is common to all of them. I configured my .chm file to display help in small chunks, for example:
Introduction to Monkeys
Cleaning up After Monkeys
For one screen, the description of the toolbar is in chapter 1, the description of the reports that can be generated from that screen is in chapter 8, and the description of the fields and buttons for that screen is in chapter 3.
How can I place a marker for that screen if the user may want information on the toolbar, report, or fields?
