I have a problem with seeing the index entries of a slave
project in the master project chm. As well as not being able to see
the slave index entries, the word search does not display words
from the slave project. All the settings are OK in both projects,
including having the Binary Index checkbox ticked in the Project
Settings dialog box, but still no joy.
Anyone got any ideas?
I managed to work out why our index entries from the slave
project were not showing up in the master project.
We’d been using ProgrammingReferenceGuide.chm as the
name of the slave project chm file. This has exactly 25 characters.
I thought it may be too long so I shortened it worked. After some
more testing, I found out that the maximum number of characters you
can have in a slave project that is merged into a master project is
24 - we had one character too many!!
No-one in tech support knew this.
