I'm using WebHelp layout in RoboHelp 9 When I generate and publish my parent project, it creates the following structure:
Why? My project is quite large and this effectively doubles the size of the project as all the Child folders contain all the files they should. It makes my publishing to a remote server extremely long too as double the content is moving over.
I followed Peter's instructions to the letter but cannot get rid of these extra Child folders without physically deleting them.
I know you cannot have followed the instructions to the letter as that does not happen.
Completely empty the folder to which you are generating. Then generate the parent.
What you will see is
Then generate Child 1 to Parent > mergedProjects > Child 1
You should not see the first Child 1 immediately under Parent.
Generate the download from my site and you will see that works.
I am going to have limited access to the forums over the next few days but will try to follow up.
