You mentioned to me about how you create a fake webhelp
project to import your word docs into, then once you get it looking
nice, you then import it into your main project.
I looked on your website and could not find out explicitly
how you import from your fake (or test) project into your main
project. Would you mind giving me a quick run down (or point me to
the correct page on your site)?
You could import the Word document straight into your main
project. There is potential for something to go wrong. I am not
saying it will and in most cases it will not. However, if you
create a new project and import into that, it doesn't matter if
something goes wrong. You just trash the project and import again
into another new project.
Once you have the topics in, you do any tidying up that you
deem necessary. Don't create a TOC or do any indexing. Just get the
appearance of the topics as you want them.
Then in your parent project you highlight the folder where
you want the new topics, right click and select Import.
