Obviously the build expression is not excluding the topics as KeyTools has shown you.
Have you checked it?
Have you tried creating a new tag and applying it to something, then testing that topic gets excluded?
Thanks for the suggestion. I created a new tag, marked one topic, excluded the tag from the CHM and rebuilt it.
The new CHM excludes the topic from the Contents and Index. However, when I search for a word in the topic then the topic appears to be listed. When I attempt to display the topic I get the program cannot display page and when I look at the properties of the page I can see that it's referring to the same topic but in a different folder and project.
Now I look at the paths for the 'wrong' search results, they all refer to files in last year's projects.
I proceeded to search for every CHM I've ever generated and deleted all that were stored in any folder that RoboHelp knew about. The new CHM still had the same issue.
Finally a colleague who knows nothing about RoboHelp but who's been listening to my increasing frustration suggested that I rename the top-level folder with all the old topics that are getting wrongly included. To my relief it worked, but I can't help feeling that this is a bug in RoboHelp 7.
That sound more like the folder specified in the first page of the wizard was wrong. If it were a bug, there would be a lot of people with this problem. However, main thing is you are back in business.
