I have a similar kind of situation, so continuing the same post though it's four years old.
I am using RH for word 9. I also want to delete all the items in my index and there are around 1000 entries in my index. I tried what Peter suggested (holding the delete key), but the Word docs keep opening simultaneously. This is slowing down the process of deletion and also opening a huge number of Word docs. Could anyone suggest a solution for this?
Sorry Vinay, nothing to suggest other than to seriously consider abandoning RoboHelp for Word in favor of using RoboHelp HTML. The only valid reason I can think of for using it is if you have a need to produce WinHelp. And Microsoft themselves would REALLY love it if WinHelp would finally die.
The problem you will find is that very few folks actually use RoboHelp for Word, so other than the development team popping in to answer a question here and there, you are pretty much on your own to sort any issues that arise.
To my knowledge, there aren't even classes offered for learning how to use this product.
Adopt RoboHelp HTML. You will be glad you did.

Thanks Rick, for responding. This project was unfortunately created in RHW initially in 2004 and now it has grown up like Credit Card bill:) I will have to do a work around for now, but for future projects, no doubt, I will us RH HTML.
