I don't know how to add new search words to a CHM file. I
mean I know that I should use the Smart Index wizard I guess. I
have two projects in different languages. In the english RoboHelp
project, I see my words (Indices) in the smart index wizards but in
the german project, nothing is shown. In the CHM file, the search,
however, works. What I would like to do is to add some words so
that the user would, for example, find the same page when typing
"Dateifunktionen" or "Datei-Funktionen".
Could someone help. I'm using RoboHelp HTML 7. My project was
created with version X3.
Are you saying you are running the wizard on your german
project but nothing is coming up in the list of potential keywords?
Can you add a keyword manually? Try adding Datei-Funktionen into
the list of keywords in the Index tab and assign the topics to it.
I always prefer to add keywords manually anyway. The wizard never
seems to get the right keywords for me.
If I have understood your question correctly, you want to
know how you can add synonyms for certain keywords using RH 7, to
get the same results. Well, RH 7 allows you to do that using the
Project Settings dialog box.
Please follow the instructions below.
1. Click File > Project Settings.
2. Click the Synonyms tab.
3. Add keywords and their synonyms. Make sure you do not add
any special characters.
4. Save and generate CHM.
Following the instructions above you should be able to
achieve the desired results. If you cannot, please do let me know.

be gald to help.
