If you have Topic Level index keywords defined, these should exist as meta tags in the head area of the topic. Normally RoboHelp HTML will simply include these in the index when your help is created. You might try simply closing and re-opening your project. This action in and of itself may coax the keywords to be listed in the index.
The topic keywords are in the topics as meta tags, but closing and re-opening the project doesn't cause them to appear in the Index pane...um..pod?. They refuse to be coaxed. Any other ideas?
BTW, the keywords do show up in the compiled help index... which is confusing to me because they are not in the RH index, and they are not in the .HHK file (it's empty). And a file I found (rhkkeyword.apj) is also devoid of keywords. Does the help compiler know how to build an index from the meta tags in the .HTM files themselves?
Try changing the settings so that new keywords are added to the index file and then create just one keyword. See if that brings in all the other keywords from the topics.
Post back if not.
Is your output a CHM or webhelp?
I'm afraid that doesn't work to bring in the other topic keywords. Only the one keyword or a that I added after changing the settings appears in the index pod. It also appears in the HHK file. The output is CHM.
One might wish for a "Scan topics for keywords" command.
Is your index binary or non-binary? You need a binary index to include embedded topic keywords in the index.
To Pete L,
Index is binary - RH forces that choice when I select Topic keywords for the project.
To Peter G,
Gee, that might work, but I don't have time right now to work through it. I'll keep it in mind for later--probably combine Grep and Sed in a batch file to scan the HTM files and create the RH keyword file so I can use it again.
