Can you tell us what your output is? If it is webhelp I think
technically you can edit the files containing the search data. Not
sure you'd really want to do so though. It may be better to just
ensure that the terms are included in the topic text. That way the
search will find them.
Further to what Colum suggested, can you better explain
exactly how you would like to see this operate? Just give us your
"mind's eye" view of how it would work.
Personally, I'm struggling to figure out how something like
that would work. I'm guessing that perhaps upon clicking the
"found" term in the Search Results, you would like the Glossary tab
to replace the Search tab and the term be highlighted?
If that's the case, there is no way I'm aware of to make that
happen. I'm with Colum in that you should probably just ensure the
terms exist in a topic.
Or, perhaps create a single topic that only lists the
Glossary terms and definitions. You could do this quite easily.
Just create the topic so it's open in the Topic Editing area. Then
open the Glossary Pod/Pane. Click and drag the terms from the
Glossary Pod/Pane to the topic. When you do that, it should
automagickally create expanding hotspots in the Topic.
