    Getting the Glossary tab to appear?

    JaredHess Level 1
      For our localization process we decompile our English RH-built HtmlHelp file (.chm) into it's respective components and ship it off for localization. When it comes back, I recompile the project outside of RH, using FAR HTML instead. The problem is that the Glossary tab doesn't ever appear. From what the help file says the HHActiveX.dll has to be registered for the Glossary tab to appear, but I'm thinking I probably have to build the file within RoboHelp to get this functionality. Is this true or is there a way to enable it outside of RH?

      Usually we've just recreated the .glo as an .htm with headings and paragraphs and have that translated and then link to it, but would like to get the tabbed functionality working to streamline our process a little better.

      Thanks in advance.

          Hi Jared

          Yes, I believe the file has to be compiled using RoboHelp in order to make the Glossary Tab work. I'm not sure why or what is special about it, but as I understand it that's the case. And it's also the case that each of your end users will not only have to have the HHActiveX.DLL present, but it has to also be properly registered with Windows in order for it to work.

          I see from your signature line that you are using RoboHelp 7, so I'm wondering if you have tried the command line compile as opposed to the other method.

          Cheers... Rick

            Thanks Rick. No, I've not used the command line compile though I suppose I could give it a try. I usually don't import the foreign language files back into RH since that has caused some crashes when attempting to recompile. I just tried a regular compile of Traditional Chinese yesterday and RH had some real issues with the project and would never build the help, whereas FAR HTML recompiled it just fine.
