    Glossary Tab is empty

    Jim1941

      Terms are present in top half of Glossary Designer, definitions are present in bottom half of Glossary Designer. Generate Primary Layout, Tab is display but blank. I did copy paste from a Word document?

          Hi Jim1941 and welcome to our community

          Is this happening on the PC where you have RoboHelp installed? Or is it happening on an end user's PC?

          My reason for asking this is because this is typically an indication that the required HHActiveX.DLL file isn't present and registered. This would seem highly unlikely if it's the development machine, but VERY likely if it's an end user's machine.

            Thanks Rick,
            Don't know why it wasn't registered either, but that did it. I can now see the Glossary in the CHM on my devlopment machine.
            Do you know if I will need to distribute the dll to users with my Help System? Can I distribute the dll legally? JIm

              Hi again Jim

              Yes, you are easily within legal limits to distribute this .DLL. It is required in order to view the proprietary items of a RoboHelp constructed .CHM file.

              And yes, if you intend for your users to see the Glossary tab (with entries ;) you will need to distribute the .DLL along with your .CHM files.

              Cheers... Rick
