      When I click on Help in RoboHelp I get a dropdown box with several options, at the top is Index and Content, the there is a second option that changes depenting on where I am in RoboHelp. How can I do this?

          I believe that was done post production outside RH.

            To add to what Peter has already provided, I believe these options are coded within the application. For example, with a topic on in the WYSIWYG the second option is "help on WYSIWYG". This requires a call to the required help topic. Quite how this is done depends on the output type and the method employed. Peter's site has a lot of information on this if the option is webhelp.

            Quite how the application knows which help menu item to display I'm not sure. The menu item only seems to change for each of the screen elements/tabs so must be some sort of code behind the scenes for each that refers to the required topic.
