As I understand it, Search quite simply searches through an internal index of all words in your help system. There is a list of words you may maintain that folks can't search for. This is called a "Stop" list.
In my opinion, Google has hindered us as help developers because users simply want to begin at Search. To me, nothing (and I do mean NOTHING) beats a well constructed index. So much so, that in my days of yore, I didn't offer a search capability. Users THOUGHT I did, but what they got was a well designed index. They clicked a button labeled Search to get there.
Can you explain how I would develop this STOP list and how you did your search rather than index...
1/ Click File > Project Settings.
2/ Click on the Advancedbutton.
3/ Click on the Stop List tab.
4/ Add, edit or delete entries as required.
So presently I have search function and if I use your method it will take away the other words in Search and replace with only words I put in?
