I'm using RHX5 HTML. Here's the deal. I have a Help database
with 500+ topics. I need to publish 12 different WebHelp (primary
layout) versions of that database. Each version is composed of a
subset of the 500+ topics. There is overlap between versions (i.e.
some versions share the same topics). Each of the 12 versions has a
unique conditional build tag associated with it. For example, when
I want to generate GROUPA, I create a version containing topics
only associated with the GROUPA conditional build tag. Obviously,
this is very time consuming. I have to regenerate each version
separately. Is there a way to simultaneously generate a WebHelp
version for each of my conditional build tags. It seems like there
should be, because it's a very repetivite procedure (associate
build tag, publish, associate build tag, publish, et al.).
It sounds like you are using the Generate Primary Layout menu
option each time, editing the build tag entry for each build. If
so, there is an easier way - you can set up each build as a Single
Source Layout - open the SSL menu item at the bottom of the left
pane. Right-click on the desired output format and select New to
input all your buildtag and other config settings for a job. Repeat
for each build flavor. Then you can run them directly from the same
menu. Still one at a time, but at least no setup drudgery in
There may be a command line option that helps, but I don't
play in the DOS park any more so I can't take you there.
