    Linking between projects in merged WebHelp

    Nikki.Williams

      I have a merged WebHelp (created using RoboHelp 10) that has several child projects. I now need to have the same topic in two child projects and I want to prevent duplicate maintenance.

       

      I tried making the topic a snippet and adding the snippet to the Resource Manager; however, when the snippet is updated in project A, the snippet in project B doesn't reflect the updates. The only other alternative I could think of is linking the topic from project A to project B.

       

      So that leads me to my question - how can you update project A so that when the user clicks a topic, it automatically displays the topic from project B (but without leaving the frame of project A)? Is there a better method to accomplish this?

       

      Thank you in advance for your help, I GREATLY appreciate it!
