    Add Search Tab

    tojo45 Level 1
      I am trying to add the search tab. The Window option boxes are selected as per the Help. There is already an Index and Contents. But the search tab will not display. A co-worker advises her experience is that if you don't add at the beginning of the project, you cannot add it later. Is this true, or is there a workaround?

      Any help would be most appreciated.

          If your output is webhelp, there is a check box in the second page of the wizard.

          If you output is compiled help (CHM), then look at the Window properties. There should be a check box there for the search tab. If you don't see one, make sure that HTML help is set as your primary output and then create a new window. The properties of that will have one.

          You can switch it on and off any time you like.

            Peter, Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry for not providing better info. This is for a chm file. Per the RH Help I selected the Search check box in the Windows properties, but it does not display the Search tab when compiled. There is already an Index and Contents. I tried creating a new window but nothing changed.

              Create a new project with CHM as the primary output and just a couple of topics. Make sure Search is checked and see if that behaves.
