My co worker and I would like to each participate in creating
a HTML help file but would like to merge them together, is that
possible and how???|||
Most definitely it is. This is normally done by have a
“master” project that is in fact contains no topics but into which
you place the “slave” projects that you and your co-worker will
produce. You would just add the two CHMs into the master TOC and
viola! Check out the RH help file in the first instance as it has a
lot of useful info there. If you have any further queries, then
post them here.
You may want to think a little about things like context

A CHM file is one of the standard way of deploying help on a
Windows desktop. CHM means Compiled Help Module. These are compiled
HTML Help files. If you open Microsoft Internet Explorer and open

RoboHelp help file for more. Oh, and before you try to do that, you
may wish to configure offline help. Click Tools > Options >
General tab and ensure the “Use offline help” check box is
Does RoboHelp support merged context-sensitive CHM files?
Currently we use WWP to generate the individual CHMs. To
merge them, we update the alias files with ms:its redirects, then
compile a separate merged.hhp project. If we switch to RoboHelp,
will we need to continue this post-processing?|||
All your CSH processing can be done inside RH, although some
prefer to edit their map and alias files in a text editor.
