Ok so I found a workaround to my problem... basically I combined the two above options.
So now I have two Glossary buttons. One is the RoboHelp Glossary button, the other is a custom button. I go into the whtbar.js and this time, I set style=display:none on the Glossary section of addButton.... this seems to work like a charm, only two drawbacks:
1) No longer see "selected" image when glossary is pressed
2) Need to modify js file every time I regenerate
If anyone up there in Macromedia Headquarters is taking notes for a possible patch to RoboHelp, I would say make it possible for users to modify the JS files that are included with each regeneration of the project. This would be *incredibly* useful.... I've got a list of modifications that need to be made every regeneration of the master project (including TOC synchronization fix for merged proejcts) and if I ever leave my job if someone doesn't find that list and they make a regenreation, there'll be hell to pay.
There is a way to edit the .JS file and make it stick. I refer to this as "going up the food chain".
Try editing the "seed" whtbar.js file you should find in the following location:
C:\Program Files\RoboHelp Office\RoboHTML\WebHelp5Ext\template_skin (assuming you haven't deviated from the installation defaults)
Also, I'd probably want to ensure I kept a backup copy of the file handy. Just in case.
Give that a go and see if it does what you want.
Sincerely... Rick :)
Thank you Rick !
You made my life about 20 times easier with that tip there.
