Otherwise, I'd simply add the .SWF to my baggage files list and link from there.
I have never worked with baggage files. Can you explain how to use them and link to them in more detail? Will this make my file very big? We will eventually have many, many videos and have had to take that into consideration when making these links.
Hi again Brook21679
Basically it's as simple as expanding the Baggage Files pseudo folder in your Project Manager pane. Then choose to add the file.
When considering file size, it might be better to think of it this way. If you add to baggage, the files are inside the .CHM and while it will indeed increase in size, you will have the same space requirements whether the movies are inside the .CHM or left out. It's just that you have more files to distribute.
I've had exactly this problem. I use a shortcut to open an external .htm file and everything works fine until I close, re-open, then re-generate the .chm.
I initially make my shortcut go to <C:/MyProgram/APP_DATA/Index.htm>, or even <../MyProgram/APP_DATA/Index.htm>, but then if I close the help project it turns into just <index.htm>.
I'd love to know a better way of dealing with this rather than re-entering the full path everytime I generate a new compiled help fiIe. Luckily this is the only external bookmark, otherwise that would be rediculous.
