We've been working with merged HTML help projects for a while
and have always added merged projects to the root level of the
table of contents in the master project. Now, we need to add a
slave project e
within a book that already exists in the master project.
When I do this, the slave project does not appear where I want.
Instead, it appears one level farther down than where I put it. I
have tried everything, even modifying the .hhc file directly.
Nothing seems to work. I just can't get it to appear where I want.
Unfortunately there is a bug with this when using RoboHelp.
The only workaround I'm aware of is to step outside of RoboHelp and
use the Microsoft HTML Help Workshop (HHW) to compile the project.
But if you do this, there goes the ability to use conditional build
tags and conditional build expressions.
At one point this feature was broken (I understand it's
really a bug with the HTML Help compiler and the structure of the
.HHC file) and it was corrected for a few RoboHelp versions. But
later versions of RoboHelp broke the ability.
