I am using Robohelp 2015. My requirement is to merge the responsive outputs of different projects into one master project. The child projects are getting merged into master project, but the individual child's filters are not working in the master project as expected.
I'm not certain, but it would seem only logical that in each project you would need to ensure the same identical set of conditional build tags. Then each project would also likely need the same exact filter settings in the SSL recipe too.
Perhaps Adobe or Willam van Weelden will pop in to confirm or deny.
Thanks for the reply. I am taking exactly same number of conditional build tags. On merging, the filters of both the projects are getting reflected. But they are just acting fine on master's TOC, and not on the content.
Have you got all the patches installed? I know there were a few posts about filtering problems, and I think there has been a recent patch with filter related fixes.
I never tried this with a merged project either. Does the merged project have the exact same Dynamic filter settings available as the master?
Can you please elaborate dynamic filter settings? I have given same screen layouts for master and child projects.
How the Conditional Build tags are available, is set through the SSL. So if you want some content to be excluded in a child project, you have to specify that in the child project SSL. The SSL for the master project only controls the output for the master.
For dynamic filters, you set the available filters in the SSL as well. I haven't used this myself yet, but if you want the filter to be available in the output of the child project, you will have to apply the same filters and same name for every child SSL. Once it's merged, you can check whether the child topics/TOC/IDX pick up on the filter settings.
Thanks for the reply. I have defined the same conditional build tags and applied to the content of all the child projects. Then I have added these conditional tags as filters in the SSL. But on merging these projects into master project, the actual content is not getting filtered(only TOC is getting filtered). In individual child projects, the filters are working fine.
I am using the latest version of Robohelp 2015 4.1. The filters in the child project are not working in the master project. When I am trying other way round, the filters in the master are not getting reflected in the child either.
