    Single Click a Book to display html assigned

    MEP45 Level 1
      Hi,

      I have a book which has an HTML file attached to it. How do I set this so that when a user just clicks the book the topic linked to it opens? It appears right now my users are having to double-click it. But topics underneath are all single click.

      Thanks,

      Mary

          Hi Mary

          Normally if you have a topic assigned, it will display by simply clicking the book. Are you asking about also having the book open on a single click?

          If so, that's done in an option when you compile. If you click File > Generate and get to the intermediate dialog, look near the bottom for a button labeled Edit... and click it. You should then see another dialog appear with a couple of tabs. Click the tab labeled TOC Styles. On this tab are a bunch of check boxes. The one you want is labeled "Single click to open books".

          Cheers... Rick

            When the tester clicks the book he says it does not automically display the file assigned to it, he has to double click it. But i did the File > Generate function and my Edit button is grayed out. The help says that button is in Flashhelp and I am outputting to WebHelp.

              Hi again

              Indeed the options I was talking about would apply to CHM (Microsoft HTML Help) output only. I mistakenly thought that was what you were using.

              Even WebHelp should be working with a single click though. However, in WebHelp output, I have heard of issues arising when folks have topics assigned to Books. Not sure if there were any workarounds posted.

              Cheers... Rick
