Hi Jennifer. You can use the Tools > Glossary Hotspot Editor menu item to add glossary popups to your topics. Just add your glossary definitions first in the Glossary tab. I'd try that first.
Thanks for the response. I did as you suggested and added glossary definitions and then ran the glossary wizard to assign them. I removed all references to the old glossary from both the main and subprojects (TOC, Index, Baggage, output folders, etc). I generated the main project, and then searched for glossary. I got two results, both of which link to the Window's glossary and a Runtime Error asking me if I want to Debug. Any ideas?
I cannot find the Glossary Hotspot Editor you mention in your response. I only see the Glossary Hotspot Wizard or the Browse Sequence Editor. I'm not convinced with the results, since I prefer a popup over expanding text, and I could format my old popups with returns and bullets. However, my boss says that if the wizard takes care of the problem, then that is what we will use, but so far it hasn't.
Sorry to mislead you Jennifer the Glossary Hotspot Wizard was what I was referring to. I don't use it actually and I know others - like you - don't like the results so adopt other methods of providing the glossary.
Do you have duplicate definitions in any of the sub-projects. Perhaps you could handle this by having all the definitions in one project (e.g. the master) and linking to them via the "Remote Topic" feature. Another way would be by using text only popups but this would mean having to update all the popups if a definition changed so I wouldn't personally go down this line.
