A little more progress! Successfully got the merged webhelp example working as explained in Peter's article.
The merged webhelp presents a problem with the .h files. To use the CSH Test tool, you need to specify the .h file you want to test.
Since I had three subprojects, each with a separate .h file, I tried appending the .h files to each other into one file, and put it at the level of the \mergedProjects folder in the \generate and \publish directories.
Using the merged .h file, the CSH Test tool loads the right help into the help previewer, but not in the multi-frame mode. Is that right? Does the previewer not support the multi-frame capabilities of a browser?
Also *important*: when you generate or publish Webhelp, seems that the .h files don't get copied to the target output directories. They have to be copied from the project directories manually. (Bug?)
Did you select "Two Pane" in the window properties when you defined the window in the various projects?
I am likewise trying to implement the "merged WebHelp with Map IDs" scenario, per the articles on Peter G's site. However, the problem that I have is that I do not get the right topics displayed, from either the previewer or the test page. As far as I can tell, I have followed the instructions correctly.
I have an example project I can zip and share, if anyone's interested.
I did select two panes from the window properties tick boxes. When you say you're not seeing the correct topics, do you mean in the TOC, or what?
