Hi,

I am testing using the responsive html 5 output with merged files. I have worked out my issues with the table of contents but now I come to the index. Our real help has a lot of index keywords down to 3 levels, each child project has its own index. Some of the Index keywords are the same in more than one child project. This is where we have an issue in Responsive HTML5 help my test project looks like this:

Each Test keyword goes to a different child project.

Here is the same project generated as a WebHelp project

I have selected the single Test keyword and a pop up box appears to let me go to one of the child projects.

So the index is working in that in responsive html5 help you can click on each of the index entries and they take you to the associated topic. However it is not working as I expected becuase you get a separate entry for each topic in the Index rather than merging them together and then providing a popup (or some other method) of selecting which child project topic you want. So is there some way to make it do what I expected or is this standard HTML5 behaviour?

Thanks

Erika

Sorry but that is how it works in Responsive HTML5. It does show the target at the bottom of the screen when you hover over the link but that isn't really what we could expect a user to think about.
