    Glossary as a Project

      Has anyone created a glossary as a RoboHelp project (this is not using the Glossary tool within the application). If so, can you describe what you did? I've done one, but just listed the term in the bookmarks and provided the definition in the topics,. It's pretty plain and not very interesting. I could use any ideas.

          Hi SuzInAZ. I created a separate project which I've merged into the main help file. I have a topic for each letter of the alphabet with a list of each term in it. These in turn have DHTML expanding text with the definition. Just one way to do it but there are others.

            I have a single topic with letter buttons at the top to link to the bookmark at the start of each letter (style GlossaryHead). I don't bother with any dropdown text; I just bold the term (style GlossaryEntry) and indent the description (style GlossaryDescription).

            I provide a button (one of several custom buttons thanks to Rick Stone's help) in the skin's toolbar.

            Good luck,
