I read something about a synonyms feature in RH 7, so I
decided to check it out. When I searched in RoboHelp's (RH 7) help
system, I found a topic with a procedure, but it's wrong. The "Look
up synonyms for indexing" topic describes a "Suggested Index
Keywords for" in step #3, but it isn't there in RH 7.02. It also
states that the synonyms are displayed in Word - seems kind of odd
in an HTML authoring tool.
It wasn't clear from the topic that it would apply to printed
documentation only. The impression I got was that synonyms were
something you edited/created as you were creating the project,
after you added some content.
The breadcumbs at the top of the topic I found were Home >
Indexes > Automatic indexing > Customizing keyword searches
> Look up synonyms for indexing. Now I'm wondering why
RoboHelp's help didn't point me to Project Settings in the first
place (Advanced localization settings - Synonyms tab)? Oh well.
