    Print Glossary

      Is it possible to print the glossary in either the compiled project or from RoboHelp?

          Hi there

          Perhaps try Tools > Reports > Glossary?

          Cheers... Rick

            Be sure to select Detailed list to get not only the glossary items but also the definitions. There are some additional ways ways to do this. Here's a routine to follow (especially useful if I have a fairly large glossary). I'm assuming WebHelp pro uses a .glo file like in HtmlHelp.

            Open the .glo file in a text editor.

            Save it as a .txt file.

            Open that inside MS Word.

            Do a Find and Replace, giving NAME= items a desired heading style (Heading 4 or Heading 5 maybe).

            Do a second Find and Replace, replacing NAME= with nothing to delete the NAME=

            Or

            Just do it using the Printed layout. When building a printed output, on the third screen of the output wizard, where you can select items for your section layout, select Glossary.

              Hi Jared

              I hate to be disagreeable, but I'm going to have to disagree.

              If you follow Tools > Reports > Glossary, you are able to choose between two different reports.

              * Overview
              * Detailed

              Overview is the default I believe and will do as you say. But if you choose Detailed, you get terms and definitions.

              Cheers... Rick
