RoboHelp has a built in Renaming function. You click File > Rename
Project and it should change all those files for you. ;)
There are ways to hide topics from search. My own favorite was made
aware to me by Pete Lees. Basically you do this:
Sneak behind RoboHelp's back and change the file name from a .HTM
extension to .XHTM.
Once you have done this, RoboHelp should list that file as missing in
action. Delete the "missing" file from RoboHelp, but don't delete the
Edit any links that pointed to the file and amend the file extension to
Add the file to the appropriate location as a baggage file.
Re-generate or Re-compile and you should be good to go.
Cheers... Rick :)
