Can I launch the HTML5 Help not in full context view?

HTML5 merged help

 

We are working on redesigning our introductory page, and we want to load it by itself, not in full-context view. Is there a way to do this?

 

Our introductory page is intro.htm. It resides in one of a child help named "helpcentertopics". The redirect javascript from the parent help points to that page already. It's also the default page of child help where it resides, but RoboHelp by default opens in full-context mode.

For example, selecting the Help menu from our application it's using map number 60001 which defaults to intro.htm and it opens in full-context view.

 

We want to tell RoboHelp to open just this topic by itself, like this in the URL:

https://docs-dev.hexagonmi.com/pcdmis/2021.1/en/helpcenter/mergedProjects/helpcentertopics/intro.htm

 

It's currently opening this, showing the TOC etc:

https://docs-dev.hexagonmi.com/pcdmis/2021.1/en/helpcenter/index.htm#t=mergedProjects%2Fhelpcenterto...

 

I can understand that most people want this, and normally we would too, but in this case, we want to use the real estate for some other things. Obviously, once they select "Click here to see this page in full context", they'll stay in full context mode as they should.

 

But when they first launch the help on just this topic, we want it to not launch not in full context mode. Is there a setting that controls this?

Instead of using a Map ID couldn't you use a redirect script with the URL you require?
