Hi all

Becca, it sounds like you aren't wanting to *MERGE* projects. Instead, it sounds like you want to *COMBINE* projects.

What's the difference?

If you MERGE, you configure one project as a *MASTER* project that contains references to subordinate projects that remain their own projects from the editing standpoint, but are merged when the end user opens them.

If you COMBINE, you take one project and import the topics into it so that it becomes a larger project that now contains all the elements of the former separate projects. To combine, you simply import the topics from the other projects, then assemble your TOC and Index so they include the proper references.

Cheers... Rick :)

Subject: merging Robohelp projects?

I'm a student, learning RoboHelp (and having a ball with it). For a midterm
project, we had to do a small help project. Our final project is a much
larger one. I'd like to incorporate the midterm project into my final
project. Rather than having to recreate the midterm project's topics, is
there some way I can import them into the new project?
