Our company is in the process of developing a kissing cousin
of our application that will have a different name. Since the
majority of the help can be reused, I decided to use a
‘name’ variable. My main project contains 603 topics
plus four merged projects. I also use three build tags for three
custom versions of our application. Two of the merged projects do
not relate to the cousin app at this time, so I created another
build tag to be able to exclude them in the TOC of the main
project. I also created a new window that shows the name of the
cousin app, and a new output folder for the cousin.
Here is where I’m stumped. To make things easier,
I’ll call the current app Current and the cousin app Cousin.
If I search the two merged Cousin chm files for Current, no results
appear, but when I search the main Cousin chm for Current, a very
long list of topics appear, which includes topics from the merged
Cousin chm files that I found no results for in thier individual
searches. I also get topics from the other two merged projects that
I excluded via the build tags. Why?
Can anybody help me with this, please? We already have
clients for the new app and everybody is waiting on me to get the
help up and running.
I expect that you've already done this, but the first things
to check are the Merged Files settings for the Cousin project (
Project Settings >
Advanced tab >
Merged Files area). These determine which other CHM files
are merged into the Cousin CHM.
Thanks very much for the reply. When I click File >
Project Settings > Advanced, there are four tabs: Always Ingnore
Words, Stop List, Phrases and LNG File. The LNG File tab shows
[GlossaryTab], [BrowseSequence], [Common], [WebHelp], and
[PrintedDoc] sections. The only reference I can find for Merge is
under [WebHelp]: MergeError1 = The merged Help system and
MergeError2 = is using a different language from the master Help
system, which will cause the index and full-text search
funcionality to be disable in the merged Help system. I don't see
anything realted to the merged projects.
