    Is it possible to add an Expand all/Collapse all button in WebHelp Output?

    Niamh_Doyle Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      We now have > 15 child projects in our merged online help, each containing hundreds of topics. Each child project is a chapter in our WebHelp online help output.

       

      If a user opens a couple of topics in each project, the TOC can become difficult to navigate. Is it possible to add a button that enables users to collapse all of the open chapters / expand all of the closed chapters? We are using RoboHelp 10.

       

      Thanks a lot,

       

      Niamh

          Hi there

           

          Expanding all could be problematic. But collapsing all should be a snap. That is, as long as you don't mind one teensy side effect. That side effect would be that the default topic would load up in the Topic pane and replace whatever topic was open at the time your user clicked the Collapse All.

           

          The way to Collapse All is to simply create a hyperlink that re-opens the WebHelp start page. Things reload fresh (with the TOC all nice and collapsed).

           

          If you would like to suggest to the Adobe development team that we actually get proper collapse or expand all buttons, please feel free to suggest it using the link below:
