Just a wild guess -- go to the sections that you don't want to be found,
and delete the keywords.
Are you compiling for WinHelp or for HTML help? That may make a
difference -- I'm not sure. But I think the HTML help full-text
indexes, as well as indexing on key terms identified in the topics.
Hope that helps.

Subject: How can I limit the scope of the Find tab?
I've got a problem with my winhelp project and I'm hoping someone out
there has a solution.
My help project is made up of a number of smaller subprojects and some
of them are rather ancient. They need to be included with the project
but I'd like to arrange things in such a way that they are not included
when the user selects the Find tab, i.e., the Find tab does not find the
entries in a particular subproject.
I'm creating my help in RoboHELP and I took the project I particularly
do not want included out of the master project TOC but the Find tab
still finds the entries. Is there anybody out there who has a solution
to this problem?
