Why are you changing to the package_xxx.xml files? This is a search index and if you manually change the files, you will probably break the search function. If you tell us what you are trying to achieve, we may be able to provide a better way to do it.
I'm modifying the index because the sub-string search function in new version of Robohelp in my machine doesn't work when i select search sub-string option it's corrupt my index Idk why the old version works fine, however i use both the old version to index sub-string search and the new version for interface and skin...
what i was trying to do is remove all Punctuation marks from index that words may have two tags"wd" had the same "nm" id it will take only the first and ignore the other i want modify the search script to read "nm" ID even if there is more than on had the same "nm" string with different record words location.
also i manged to modify the highlighter function to be lenient and diacritic insensitive so now i can match words like Arabic with diacritic i hope the next version of Robohelp have this feature .. thanks
I see. Please file a bug report with Adobe: http://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html
You can disable substring search in RoboHelp, but I'm not sure if that is an acceptable workaround. If you want to modify the index file really bad, can you use a script or automation solution to do the work for you? You'll need some heavyweight postprocessing to merge the different tags (over different package files). You'll have more chance finding a solution by asking your developers than asking in this user forum.
yes I'm using find and replace tool already for my attempt but i was hoping one of developers in this forum give me some hints of what i described earlier
thanks anyway for responding..
