    RoboHelp won't create books

    Lonno7 Level 1
      thanks to those of you who provided guidance with my last merge-projects issue (turned out to be an incorrect-path proglem -- fixed).

      So, I actually got around to creating a project (let's call it "NewYear") to merge into our currently running (let's say "Primary") project. I put my cursor in the TOC where I wanted the new project to merge into, clicked the merge icon, and a placeholder showed up. When I compiled the Primary project ... no book. Nothing. So, I went back (guess I should have done this first) and created a book, re-compiled ... nothing.

      So, just for investigative purposes, I created a "dummy" book a little farther up the TOC tree and re-compiled ... nothing (no new book, I mean).

      Was gibt?

      Thanks in advance,

          Hi Lon

          I've got a super silly question to ask you. Did you remember to place the content you are merging in the correct output location so that the help will find it? For WebHelp, this creates a MergedProjects folder where you need to insert the merged WebHelp files from the other system. For compiled .CHM, you normally copy the .CHM you wish to merge into the output folder.

          If the files that are to be merged aren't in the correct location, you won't notice anything particularly different.

          Just a thought... Rick
