    RoboHelp 8 WebHelp Not Searching PDF Baggage Files

    Chicago_HPT Level 1

      Hello All,


      I am using RH8 to create WebHelp output. My client has many many PDF files that I have added as baggage and linked within the topics. When I compile the project, the resulting WebHelp does not search within the PDF files.


      The PDFs are baggage and are linked at least once within at least one topic. They are also in the TOC, though I read somewhere that that has no bearing on Search. Most, if not all, of the PDFs are searchable from within Acrobat, and I can select and copy text from them -- they are not simply images.


      Does anyone know why RH wouldn't search inside the PDFs? This is an important feature and the project deadline is this week!
