I like the idea in the info below, posted 08 Nov 2006 by La
Menting, but does not work. I have 4 entries in my glossary--need
to add about 100 more. However, when I open the project's .glo
file, it is empty. I saved my project closed RH 7, and the file is
still empty. Any ideas?
II recently converted a WinHelp project to HTML. The only
problem I've encountered is that the Glossary entries are all in
bold and a larger font than the normal HTML Glossary output. It's
extremely ugly and gives me a headache after looking at only two or
three entries. Because I subscribe to the “be kind to the
customer” philosophy, I'd like to fix this. Does anyone have
the solution? Any help will be much appreciated...by me, at least.

* open your .glo file in notepad.
* copy and paste your glossary on another notepad - delete
the text entry on your current .glo file.
* paste the entry on the other notepad back to the .glo file
which is currenty in notepad.
of course don't forget to backup your original .glo file
before doing this.
Example of .glo entry
Definition of Data.
Definition of Element.
NAME should be in uppercase followed by an = sign then your
glossary entry. Ensure the definition appears on the very next
The only thing that comes to mind here is that maybe you
aren't looking in the right location. Assuming you have four
entries in your Glossary, there should be data in the file. This
would suggest that you aren't looking at the right file.
It may be helpful to employ one of my all time favorite
RoboHelp tricks here. To quickly open Windows Explorer in the
Project location. Just right-click any topic in your project and
choose Properties (It may also say Topic Properties). Then click
the File tab. See that button in the lower right of the dialog? The
one labeled Open Folder? Click that puppy and Windows Explorer
should pop open in your project location. Sweet, huh?
Now try looking at the .GLO file you find there and see if
you are able to see your entries.
This may also resolve my other lament(s) posted today. Only
question now is...how did I get the project created in one place
and I'm viewing a project with the same name in a different
RoboHelp folder. HAH!
