Suppressing sections from a topic

Sep 16, 2013 7:08 AM

In Robohelp10 is there a way to suppress information or a section from a topic?  Or is the option to only suppress the entire topic?  Even though the topic or section is not searchable, can anyone find it?  Another question - could we suppress either a section of a topic or the entire topic by business role or is it an all or nothing type feature?

    Hi there


    Are you wanting to simply avoid the section being found during a search? Or do you not want the text to appear at all?


    Or even possibly "hide" the section until it is needed, then reveal it?


    Cheers... Rick

    Hi there


    Typically that will mean creating two different help outputs. One output intended for the end user and the other intended for Support. You would then generate two different help outputs and point the appropriate group to their intended output.


    Although I might imagine you could somewhat accomplish your goal by using inline frames. You would insert the inline frames and configure them to point to additional topics that would only be present if the Support person would be viewing the content.


    You migth experiment with that.


    Cheers... Rick

    Wondering about Content Categories (Dynamic User Centric Content)?


    You could have a Welcome topic telling users to select their group and then they will see just what you want them to see. They would be able to select either option though.


    It is described in the sample projects and in the RoboHelp Tour on my site. Look in the New Features for Rh9.


    It may not be what you want but it's worth a look.


    See for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
