I am using RoboHelp for HTML version 8
So, the build engineers and others are wondering if there is not some way to cut down on the number of files or reduce the compiled help to a single file. Apparently, with chm files they just had to account for a single file. But they regard the current process as quite complicated, since they have to put lines in the installer for each of the Robohelp files, of which there may be over a 100 depending on the number of topics, etc. Is there some way I can help them out?
If you are generating WebHelp, you really do need to consider ALL the output files to be needed. But that's only if you really want your help to function under all circumstances.
Note that it should be possible for your developers to use wildcards to specify files. This means that instead of painfully adding entry after entry of this.htm and that.htm and theother.htm, they specify *.htm and all files in the folder would be included.
