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.
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.
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.
