Subject:RoboHelp Again - this time Indexes From:Susan Brown <sbrown -at- JSCSYS -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 11 Mar 1997 09:13:46 -0600
The frustrations ebb and flow like the Bay of Fundy tides.
I have a help project of about 20 files. I wish to create at least
two indexes to these files: one that contains just a list of topics with
explicit instructions on how to do something, and one general index to the
entire help system. To preserve the in tegrity of the index, I need this
process to be automatic: both text and links.
Robohelp seems to want to create the index from the topic titles,
which is not appropriate in either case. I would like to create my own
indexes (2) to the help system, but have been unable to find out how this
can be done. I have perused both the manual and the help files for RoboHelp,
but can't seem to lock onto what I need.
I am sure I am getting to be a bit of a bore about this, but I
really am totally on my own here, and couldn't survive without you guys.
