I'm building a merged HTML help system, with the slaves'
windows set to show the master's help (Windows > Advanced
Properties > Destinations > Table of Contents >
When compiling the slave and opening it, more often than not
the TOC tab is missing completely. The project's HHP looks
inconspiciously, but I managed to 'catch' the temporary HHP RH
generates for the compilation.
In this HHP, the parameter for the TOC to be used is
completely empty. It's not Master.chm::\Master.hhc and not even
Now this explains while the TOC is missing, but how can I
force RoboHelp to do it correctly?
rhwnd.apj lists the correct HHC, in the project's SSL I do
not see any HHC mentioned.
I have experienced this problem also. My workaround was to
make an extra .hhc file with an include of the master hhc and
nothing else. Add this as a baggage file in each slave project, and
specify it as the TOC for the slave to use.
When the .hhc referenced is actually in the project, rather
than part of another chm file, it works, and since nested includes
work in HTML Help, the whole system works.
