Welcome to our community, Jane
Presently Breadcrumbs are only available in version 7 of RoboHelp. And then, only if you are generating an uncompiled format such as WebHelp or FlashHelp.
What RoboHelp does is to analyze the Table of Contents (TOC) structure. The breadcrumbs you see in the topics reflect where in the TOC the topic exists.
Hopefully this comes close to providing the answer you were hoping for.
In re-reading this thread, it would appear I'm guilty of something I'm regularly guilty of. That's to overcomplicate things.
Breadcrumbs are a feature that you simply elect to include or not when you create your WebHelp output. Here's how you get to the setting.
Click View > Pods > Single Source Layouts
Double-click a WebHelp or FlashHelp layout
Click Next >
There should be a check box labeled "Add Breadcrumbs Links"
If you would like to provide your own formatting for the Breadcrumb trail, click the Format button
Thank you so much for your response.
I should say that I'm using RHX5 and I see breadcrumbs on most pages. Are you saying that RHX5 could not generate breadcrumbs? If that's the case, I'm now wondering how the breadcrumbs got inserted?
RHX5 has an option to Show Navigation Pane Links in Topics. Is this related to breadcrumbs.
Hmmm, assuming RoboHelp X5 was used, Breadcrumbs would have had to have been added using a custom solution.
By chance can you share a screen capture of your output so that I may see what you are referring to? Or, if you like, send me a private message to rstone75 (at) kc (dot) rr (dot) com with a screen capture.
Thanks, I'll send a screen shot with the details.
