In the company I work for we have a software product that is configurable for different customers. I have a master online help that contains ALL the components. When we are sending a particular iteration of the software to a customer with their specific set of components exposed, I have to generate a specific help for this set of components. I have all the different components conditionalised so that I can pick and choose the components needed for each customer. Development here are trying to automate the software build process and I am wondering if there is any way for our build process, via a script or something, to pick the conditionalised topics from the master help system so that we do not have to generate a new help for every customer? Any help or advice would be great. Thanks.
