No advantage for me. I'm actually happy with the way RoboHelp organizes the folders.

My programmers, however, are used to working with just one folder. They tell me it's more difficult to call up help when there's several folders involved. Since I'm not a programmer, I can't comment on that.

I think my programmers will just have to work with several folders here. But I thought I'd inquire first & see if there was any easy way to make Robo generate a single folder.

Why bother renoberating the file/folder arrangement? What advantage do you get from going through the trouble?

I'm using FrameMaker 11 and RoboHelp 10. I'm using single sourcing (my Robo project is linked to my Frame book).

To create the generated WebHelp, RoboHelp automatically splits the FrameMaker document into HTML files and places them in a folder with the same name as the chapter name in FrameMaker. So, for a book containing 10 chapters, you have 10 folders each corresponding to the chapter in the FrameMaker book.

Here's my question: Does it have to be this way?

For example, if I wanted all the HTML files for all the chapters placed in just one folder, can I tell RoboHelp to do that?

Thanks for any info you can provide!

Keith
