It used to be the browse sequence editor showed (on the left
side) only topics that were not already included in a browse
sequence. (That makes sense, since you can only include topics in
one browse sequence.)
Now it shows all topics. How can I figure out which of our
thousand topics are not included, without going through them one by
one and looking at the properties?
It must be something obvious, since I can't see that anyone
else has asked this question.... but I don't see how.
From what you have posted it would seem you actually want all
topics in a browse sequence, no?
The only way I can fathom desiring that situation would be if
you constructed the Browse Sequence to follow the TOC.
Assuming that's the case, perhaps you should consider simply
creating a sequence that matches your TOC? To do this, just open
the Browse Sequence editor and click the Auto-create using TOC
button. Type 0 for the Book level and let it rip.
Peter: Sorry, I don't know what version it was. Maybe it was
even RH for Word. I'll try to get around to entering a feature
Rick: Actually I don't want all the topics in a BS. I just
want to see which ones are not in one. I already know about the
auto-create option and have used it before. But that's not what I
want this time.
As told by Peter and Rick, this feature is not part of
Robohelp 7. But the new version RoboHelp8, supports the scripting
functionality which allows user to write custom script to carry out
user specific work or feature.
I have created a custom script which does the same work. The
Script will scan through the project topic list and browse sequence
list and displays the topics which are not used in the browse
I have uploaded the sample script file, just download the
script file and add to the scripting pod provided in RH8. Open the
project you want to see the unused Topics and run the script file,
this Script will show all the unused topics in the output pane in
You can achieve many more things with scripting support in
RH8. You can download the RH8 trial version from adobe site.
