If it were just text in the topic, you could get away with just replacing that topic although your search results would be wrong. As the TOC is affected, give the developer the whole lot.
I was afraid that was the answer. Is there no way to isolate the files that need to be updated due to the bookmark removal from the TOC? (Othere an Aside from deleting the related topic, that is.)
Yes there is, use something like Beyond Compare to compare the contents of the old output and the new output. By the time you have done that, got different files into different folders and sorted out the mess someone else makes of delivering it, you might want to deliver the whole lot. :-)
The RH output process is:
* Generate output to a location on your local machine (the Output tab indicates "Updating" all files).
* Publish output to a location on a server (Publishing Result dialog provides a list of only the changed files in the Files published pane - you have a Print option, but you can't export the list to a file, nor can you copy it to the Clipboard). These are the files you can provide to the developer, or the developer can simply pick up the new files from your server location.
Has your developer said it would be more trouble to replace everything, compared with the risk of just one of the updated files going astray -- especially considering that you're changing some contents (but not all) of the output directories beginning with wh_ ?
