I inherited a project that is years old, and the owner of the project isn't here. I haven't worked with Microsoft HTML output in a very long, long time, and can 't figure out why the published .CHM file just displays the Welcome page, with no Table of Contents, Index, Glossary, or any of that. The Welcome page is all I see when I View Output after generating and when I double-click the .chm file in File Explorer.
I checked the settings in the Single Source layout. After the first output I tried changing all the Content settings to the project name, instead of "Default." That didn't work. I'm out of ideas. Can anyone help?
Can you share some screen grabs with us?
First one should be of the CHM as you see it when it opens.
Second should be of the Output Setup pod with the Windows area expanded.
Third should be of the Window Properties you see when you double-click the CHM window.
Lastly, show us what the HTML Help dialog looks like when you double-click the output in the Outputs(SSL) pod.
Hi, thanks! I'm not sure what you mean by "Output Setup pod with the Windows area expanded." When I click View>Pods, I only see Output "View" and there's no Windows area. I create output setup in the Single Source layout - but the Single Source layout doesn't have a "Windows" area either, so I'm kind of lost.
So here's what I did:
Please let me know what else I need. Thanks!!
Found the problem. Please disregard!
Glad you sorted it.
Perhaps you can share with us what the solution was? It could help others that experienced what you did.
