I am creating a custom WebHelp toolbar button, and noticed "Dependencies" on the Advanced tab of the Custom Toolbar Item dialog. Does anyone know what "Dependencies" are? In RoboHelp's online help for Skins, I found "add or remove dependent files for the custom toolbar item when using the multi-author feature" along with some vague information about dependent files.
I'm using the "Omega" WebHelp skin for the tab design.
I believe it works like this. Suppose you are adding a toolbar item that opens a PDF. But the PDF isn't part of the project. So instead of adding to Baggage and sorting the path, you add it into the Dependencies area.
I'm thinking that in order to create a button that operates differently depending on which topic is being presented in the topic pane, it will be quite a feat indeed. While I'm sure such a button would be more elegant in the main toolbar, I'd be inclined to say it will work more easily by inserting only into the affected topics.
