Thanks to everyone who responded to my questions about the number of
topics per RoboHelp document, how to view which topics are in which
document, and how to organize the files.

Everyone who replied suggested that it would be best to consolidate to
fewer, bigger docs.

Other helpful suggestions:

*Use the RoboHelp Explorer to view docs and the topics they contain
(unfortunately you can't print this view).

*Keep context-sensitive topics together, separate from
non-context-sensitive topics. This helps when auto-generating map ids.
It also helps in the following suggestion. . .

*Compile the project and print the .hh file that corresponds to each
.doc file. (This works if you have map ids; those topics that do not
will not show up in this report).

*Use the Word Table of Contents feature.

*Chris Betterton (ChrisB -at- selectst -dot- com) has written a Word macro that
processes a single help source document and produces a report listing
topics, context strings, browse sequences, etc. as a table at the start
of the document.

*Join the RoboHelp discussion:

Thanks again for all the great help!
