Have you considered splitting things down into separate CHMs that you can merge? I'm sure this could handle what you have got. It does depend what is in each word file but maybe 500 topics per CHM.
As far as the titles are concerned you could easily remove these formatting marks using a find and replace tool. Either that or try crreating a PDF from the word file and importing that.
Just a couple of thoughts.
Rather you than me Jim!
I don't think the bulletin is relevant.
How about generating a CHM from your existing project and then Reverse Engineering that as per the article on my site. No guarantees but worth a try. Use the KeyTools method for speed.
just as an encouragement: we sucessfully converted a HUGE RH for Word project (4,300 topics) to RH HTML a while ago, including TOC, index and everything. I must admit though that we had all those topics in only 25 word documents. Maybe you can reduce the number of documents by moving the topics? There will always be problems you run into and afterward, we had to go through every single topic and check the formatting, but I guess you'd always have to do this. But I think it's worth it, working in HTML is so much more convenient.
Me again. I just read your other post and I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing. When I said we converted/imported our Word project I meant we used File->New->Project->Import tab->WinHelp project (HPJ). This worked quite well.
