I'm using RoboHELP 6.0. I'm trying to assign secondary windows all at
once. Here's what I do:

1. Select the topics I want in the RoboHELP Explorer Topic List (the
window on the right side, not the left).
2. Right-click and choose "Default Window"
3. Select a secondary window and click OK.
The topics appear to be updated. At least when I view their properties,
I see that the secondary window is assigned.

this is what it says to do on p. 355 of the manual.

I have already added these topics to a TOC. When I compile the project
and test the topics, they display in the Main window -- not the
secondary window I assigned.

Do I have to assign each topic AGAIN in the TOC can't seem to select
multiple items here!)
Or maybe delete them from the TOC and re-add them? (that will be a pain
- there a lot of topics)
Or do I have to assign the default window in the topics list that
appears on the LEFT side of the RoboHELP Explorer (under the Topics
folder) -- again, I can't select multiple items here, so I'll have to do
it one by one (ahhhh!).

I'm sure there's an easy way, I just can't figure it out.

ps. I haven't checked their web site, but will do so now...
