After some sweat I have a working implementation of a merged
CHM project (RoboHelp 7) making use of Conditional Build Tags
(CBTs) where the user can enter via any slave and still have access
to the total ToC, and full search facilities.
We will be using these techniques in our own shop, but I have
the idea that others would appreciate sharing the knowledge, so
what should I do with it? Describing it in gory detail will cost me
days (which I don't have) and really needs screen grabs to be
clear. I have rough notes of what I did, but they are only usable
if you have access to my demo project.
Does anyone have the time and inclination to write it up (and
check my work of course?). The project zips to 3.4 MByte and
contains no confidential information.
It is based on the techniques described
and I have worked out a way to make ToC entries usable for all
configurations. CBTs are only used in the master project.
I still have occasional problems with absolute paths, I wish
someone could solve that! My workaround is to edit the HHP, the XPJ
and the CPD and hope for the best.
