I have one group that's requesting their output to have a collapsed left hand navigation pane (i.e., no TOC/Index/Gloss/Search identified as default).
While I've shown the requestors HOW to collapse (click the "X"), they want it gone by default. I know we could always go Traditional - No Skin.. but we could also write content in Latin, too.
So, is there a method to choose "None" as the default toolbar for a defined Single Source Layout (even outside the WebHelp Options GUI)?
Yes there is but you'd have to ensure your content has the necessary navigational links to enable users to get around the content without a TOC, index or search. In the WebHelp SSL click on the Navigation dialog and deselect all the toolbar butons.
