Yes that is correct Christina. When linking between merged CHMs, all the CHMs must be in the same location. You need to have the default Single Source Layout set to "Microsoft HTML Help". If you have this gives you an additional option when you add a link called "Remote Topic". If you select this you can select the relevant CHM file and topic inside it.
Thanks for the answer.
So, I opened my current project, I opened for edit a page in which I had to insert an external link and I selected:
Link to > Remote topic..., I chose the external chm (which was copied in the !SSL! folder of my current project) and chose the corresponding topic from the list.
However, if I preview the topic or generate my new chm, the hyperlink doesn't work ("This program cannot display the webpage").
I think I must be doing something wrong...
Just to be clear, my projects are in 2 separate folders, they are not merged. Do they have to be merged for Remote topic links to work?
They will either need to be in the same folder or they will need to be registered with Windows. Otherwise, one has no clue the other exists.
Thank you Rick, I added the other chm in the same folder with the first project's files and it worked.
