Let me correct the statement that ZoomSearch does not work for RH HTML as it works quite happily across my outputs from RH HTML. I think what jimpr means to say is that is does not work in Microsoft HTML help (CHMs) which is correct.
RH HTML produces many help formats and it is the format that is the issue, not the product.
Thank for any help!
You are still referring to RH HTML. What matters is not the flavour of RH but the output type, webhelp or CHMs. I will assume you are talking about webhelp.
First it very definitely works with webhelp. The usual cause of the problem you describe is not having got the relative path right in the default page of ZoomSearch..
OK, that explains it. I am doing projects on HTML Help, which is chm files. I know ZoomSearch works for webHelp but it obviously doesn't work with HTML Help (chm files)...Sorry for the misunderstanding...
Sorry but I haven't been for a little while. The users in our company and some of our customers complain that the RoboHelp Search does not help them much. The reason is because when they do a search it finds every single instance of the word entered. Maybe works too good. Anyway, I told them to use the advanced search, use quotes, etc. See, we have one product with 500 topics. If they do a search and get 200 topics with possible results, they are already frustrated.
Anyway, this is not such a big deal to be honest with you because it's a problem with certain words that apply to many topics. They do like ZoomSearch because it's more like searching on Google...
The thing I am really trying to do and would love to find a way to do it, is rather than having the search tab on the left side of the screen, I would like to find a way to put in a topic. Meaning, just like you can put a TOC or Index in a topic by using the INSERT > HTML HELP CONTROLS > INDEX or TOC, we would like to put the Search inside a topic also.
I hope this is more clear....Thanks for trying to help anyway....
