RoboHelp 7 HTML
Build tags: yes
I still have not been able to get rid of duplicate results
when I perform a search or double-click an index entry. Here is how
my project is organized:
Master (4 topics)
Import Export (270 topics)
Main (620 topics)
Reports (560 topics)
Tutorial (160 topics)
What’s New (20 topics)
All projects are generated to the ProPricer → Help
The Import/Export, Reports and Main modules have F1
capabilities, and since I cannot open the complete help when F1 is
clicked, their windows have been named Import/Export module,
Reports module and Main module, so the user knows he is not
accessing the complete help. The names of the projects used to
contain the name of our product (ProPricer), but that was removed
long ago. These projects have links between them; the Main module
has links to Reports and Import/Export, the Reports module to Main
etc, so RoboHelp copies the respective chm file to the project
The What’s New project does not have F1 capabilities,
but it does contain links to Import/Export, Reports, and Main, so
the respective chm files have been copied to this project folder.
The Master project is what I created to merge all the
projects. It does not contain any remote links, nor require F1
capability. The window of this project is named ProPricer Help,
since this is the complete help.
Performing a search or double-clicking and index entry in the
Import/Export, Reports or Main modules within the application does
not result in duplicate entries. The problem arises in the merged
(Master) help. For example: if I double-click import in the Index I
get two results:
Import Import/Export Module
Import ProPricer Import/Export Help (this is the old name of
When I search for Import, I also get duplicate entries, which
open the same topic. The location is not listed.
This is what I have done so far:
1. Deleted, deleted and deleted again the cpd file.
2. Generated to a different folder.
3. Copied the chm files to a different folder.
4. Opened all the hhp files, except the Master hhp, and
deleted everything in the Merged Files section.
5. I don’t see any rlt files, so I am unable to delete
I apologize if I included too much detail, but I wanted all
of you to see the intricacies of the project in case I’m not
seeing something. I had to include a faulty help in a release this
week, and that did not set well with the company. Any suggestions
you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
