I currently use the RoboHelp HTML edition version 11. Previously we used version 7 and my client was comfortable with the Search being in alphabetical order. Is there anyway i can remove the Rank feature and have my Search alphabetically?
To the best of my knowledge the only way you would achieve that within RoboHelp is to make the help Section 508 compliant. That means you cannot have a skin so it's probably not what you will want.
The alternative is a very extensive index but that is not quite the same thing.
A third party tool such as Zoomsearch (described on my site) but that's more work.
Nowadays most people are used to ranked searching because of Google. Perhaps you could use that argument?

Thank you Peter. I am definitely using the Google Search as my argument.
I did try this and it did not work for me. Hence posted the query in this blog. I use RoboHelp 11.
Can we maybe take another shot at explaining exactly what you are wanting to achieve? I first saw this:

So that tells me you are hoping to remove the ranking column. And that's a pretty simple task. You just do it in the SSL Recipe options.
What is throwing me a bit is the mention of "have my Search alphabetically".
This could mean a few different things and I think we need to clarify exactly what is meant by having search alphabetically.
Are you saying that you want the search results to be listed in Alphabetical order? Or are you saying you want the kind of search where you see the alphabetical letters across the top of the search panel?
