Does the following scenario work?

 

1. Server holds WebHelp Version 1.

2. Edits are made to apage.htm in the source and saved.

4. The WebHelp output is regenerated but it goes to a directory on the desktop. (WebHelp version 2).

5. The apage.htm in WebHelp version 2 is copied and pasted into Server WebHelp Version 1.


If the above scenario does not work, detailed information about why it does not work is needed. 

 

Thank you,

Cynthia

The search files will not change. So for example, if you add the word "zebra" to the topic and only copy the topic to the server, searching for "zebra" in WebHelp Version 1 will not return the topic.

If you want to minimise the number of files copied to the server, use the Publish function and make sure the "Republish All" checkbox is NOT selected. That way, apage2.htm and apage3.htm are not copied, but all updated supporting files such as search and index are. (You continue to generate to the desktop, but the publish action copies files from the desktop to your server location.)
