Hi Bill and welcome to our community
Everyone that is confused here, raise your hands! (Rick raises hand)
Are you by chance saying that you want some topics hidden from search? (I know you mention "Index", but I suspect this is a misnomer and you meant to say "Search". Additionally, you mention "RoboDemo". Did you really mean "RoboHelp"?
Assuming you intend to hide topics from the search mechanism, indeed there is a way. Essentially, you rename them by changing the file extension from .HTM to .XHTM. Once you do this, you need to add them to baggage files so RoboHelp knows to include them in the mix.
I'm thinking that at this point you probably need to adjust any references that occur in any .H files. (CSH mapping files)
Hopefully this helps... Rick
I'll raise my hand too, but what I read is that Bill wants two windows - one stripped down to show RoboDemo movies (is that the proper term?) from the app's CSH and one tri-pane to open other topics, showing the other content, TOC, index, and perhaps search. Is this correct, Bill? Or I am just showing my ignorance of things FlashHelp?
There is a separate forum for FlashHelp and you might want to post there. I only ran a trial version once so I should probably refrain from saying anything but I think you can include topics that are not included in the index and can be accessed only through CSH.
Sorry guys. My own confusion/ignorance seems to have confused you as well. But, I think Rick gave me the answer. Basically I just want minimalized content for the CSH for the app dialogs, leaving the regular topics as they are, and without adding the CSH topics to the contents list (did I say "index"?). I'm assuming that I can just create separate topics and put them in the baggage file -- but can I assign map IDs to these topics? I'll test. I do a lot of that. Thanks again.
