Make misspelled titles searchable?

Some of the titles in my project list the correct vendor spelling of a tool. If a user does not know the correct spelling, he cannot successfully search for the tool in the online output. Is there a way to add terms that would make these topics searchable?

Try clicking the Output tab and choosing Synonyms. Then you may configure Synonyms to lead them to the topics. This feature only works for the web based outputs though. I don't think it will work for CHM files if that's your help poison of choice.

Another way you could approach it would be to edit the topic properties and add the other terms there.

Ahhh, you are describing the beauty of an Index!

But I know that everyone just wants to search. So you might try employing the Search Synonym function.

Sorry, but my crystal ball is all shattered and it really messed up my psychic skills when that happened. As a result, I'm unable to divine what version of RoboHelp you are using.

What version of RoboHelp are you using?

Cheers... Rick

Thanks, Rick. I was able to add a keyword to a new topic, and that seems to resolve the issue.

Another random question, is there a way to add keyboards to topics that are already created?

I'm assuming you meant to type keywords.

The topic properties dialog may be presented at any time by right-clicking the topic in the editor (in which case the menu option will present Topic Properties) or by right-clicking the topic in the Project Manager pod or the Topic List pod.

Note that if you choose the topic while in the editor or in the Project Manager pod, you are only able to add keyword(s) to just that topic. If you are in the Topic List pod, you are able to select more than one topic, look at properties and assign the same keyword to multiple topics.

Cheers... Rick
