I am teaching myself RoboHelp right now, and I think I am
doing OK. My problem is that I would like to use context-sensitive
help, but then restrict the Table Of Contents to only show items
that are in the same book as the topic being displayed. They will
have other means to display the entire help file and TOC, but if
they just want to see help regarding a particular screen they are
on, I would like to show them that topic, and then an index for
them to see what other areas they can get to from that one screen.
I can't seem to see anything in RoboHelps help files that
describes how to do that. Does anyone have any ideas?
I believe what you are looking for here is called a "Related
Topics" control. Click your Insert menu and you should see Related
Topics on the list. Choose that and you start a wizard that asks
you to choose which topics are related. The end result is typically
a button that your user clicks to view the Related Topics.
That should work. I have to be honest and say that it was not
the direction I was planning on, but it works and I think I should
be able to convince the designer that it is a good substitute for
what he wanted.
Thank you Rick and cheers to you to!
