Over the weekend I came across an issue that I can't seem to
figure out despite hours of regeneration efforts.
The problem seems to be in the TOC of my "modular" help
system that uses multiple chm files merged into one master. There
is one chm file that contains a TOC with one book that contains
several subbooks and many topics when viewed individually. However,
when this same chm file is merged into the master, the TOC loses
the book format and just lists all of the topics in the order
specified in the TOC of the original FrameMaker file from which it
was created, but with no hierarchical structure.
I have compared the format of this specific chm to all of the
other chm files in the master and cannot seem to find any
differences. Do you have any thoughts on what might be the cause of
this strange behaviour?
I do not use Framemaker; I use RHx5 with RoboEngine. I had a
similar issue approx 6-8 months ago when testing the merged Project
function. My issue was the result of not using RoboEngine to
publish the project - I was publishing to my desktop to test the
functionality. There were certain functions of a merged Project
that were not available without the RoboEngine.
I'm using the Tech Comm Suite and I don't think there is a
separate RoboEngine anymore, but thanks for the tip. I'm still
trying to think of a reason why this is only happening to one chm
file out of a set of about 14 other chms.
