I was looking at the index information in Tips and trix (by RoboWizard) and I noticed that if I clicked on an index heading that wasn't linked that I received an informational message telling me to click on a subentry below the index heading. How do I make that happen in my help file? Is it easy to do or learn for a rookie?
It is as simple as not having any topics assigned to the keyword. For example if you have a keyword of Project and a subkeyword of Create, add the topics to the Create subword. When you view the help, clicking on Project dets the message you describe.
