Are you generating webhelp or .CHM help?
Linking for webhelp is covered in the Merging WebHelp topic on my site.
For the home button, why not put it on the toolbar so that it is done once for every topic? That is also covered on my site.
I'm creating a chm help using RH6.
Ofcourse i've added the home button in the Navigation bar...but still as per requirement i need to include 3 buttons (Previous, Home and Next button) in all the topics (as header and footer)...
Ok any assistance for the first question which i've raised....thankx in advance...
Hi usureka. One possible way around this would be to use a redirect topic. This little beauty of RH functionality is provided free of charge by the RoboWizzard himself in his tips 'n tricks file. Just look for "redirection" in the index. All you'd need to do is assign the redirect topic to jump to your introduction topic (e.g. master.chm::/introduction.htm).
I did went through Rick's Tips & Tricks.
Sorry to repeat again and again.
Using remote topic option, i'm able to give link from a master project topic to a sub-project topic . I did this after merging the sub-project to the master one.
But before that, in the sub-project topics, i'm referring some topics (present in the master one), and when i provide links using Remote topic option, i'm getting the msg. "page cannot be displayed".
I even added the master.chm and the topic.htm file in the sub-project folder and ofcourse in the baggage file also.
To put in simple words, Link from master to sub-project works fine (when a projects are merged).
But, I'm not able to give link from sub-project topic to a master project topic.
OK. Are you saying that the link does not work from the sub-project's CHM file or when you preview it inside RH? Both the CHMs must be in the same directory? If you are using the master.chm::/introduction.htm syntax for your link note that no directory is specified meaning that both files must be in the same physical location. Can you provide us with the syntax used for the remote topic link?
This is the actual situation colum.
I've created the Master project and My colleague has created the sub-project. She has to refer (provide link) to some of my master project topics in her file. And i also need to refer(provide link) to some of her sub projects in my file. Finally i need to merge the sub-project into my master project and handover to my project Manager
Note: Neither of us were able to provide link in their respective files this using remote topic option.
I thought on my part, let me try to provide link after merging her project to mine:
1. I got her chm file and merged in to my master project (automatically the sub-project.chm is placed into my directory, once when i merge her project).
2. Then using remote topic option, i give links to the relevant sub-topics from my master project.
3. But my colleague was not able to provide the relevant links to the master project.
I do understand that this should be done, before merging the projects. Hence she followed the below steps:
Before merging the projects, she copied my master.chm into her project directory and used remote topic option to give links, but still it says page cannot be displayed.
I've pasted the syntax here:
Pls guide me...
Try removing the underscores from your CHM file names, relink and compile. You should not use underscores or any other special characters.
Thanks a lot colum...it's workingggggggggggggggg.....a small underscore created a big story.......Thankzzzz :-))
