I have a number of documents that are confiured in MS Word as
Master and Sub-documents. When trying to import them into a
RoboHelp Project I get the master document as a topic but no
content for the sub-documents (despite Word/RoboHelp opening the
documents in the import process) just a couple hyperlinks to my
Has anybody got any expereince of using RoboHelp and
If you are trying to import the files using the Master
document only, then what you are seeing is correct. Master Docs
link to the subdoc, it locates and displays the text accordingly.
RoboHelp is being instructed to import the file with the links. You
will have to import each sub-document individually.
Unfortunately, I have still to tweak a Word Macro I am
preparing to split large documents by section and save each as
individual HTM files in prep for importing to Robohelp. I still
have to amend the macro to strip out the unwanted HTML script from
the files so they import cleanly into RoboHelp. If it was ready, I
would have posted it for you.
As an aside, you realise that Master documents in Word have
only two states: about to corrupt and corrupted.
