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