I have the setting "Single Click to Open Books" checked on in HTML Adv Settings.  This works great.  wooo hoo!  My QA people are so pleased with this feature that they want single click functionality to open topics in the Index and Search tabs.  I can't find any where to enable this.  Am I missing a setting?  Is there a way to "hack" this?

I have RoboHelp 10 and outputting to Microsoft_HTML_Help.

Thanks for hot, humid Florida,

Shannon

Hi there

Sorry, but it's a CHM limitation. Unfortunately I don't recall if this emerged with version 10, but if so, you could use the WebHelp to CHM converter script to package a WebHelp output inside a CHM. If you were to do that, then you would have what you want where a single click would open things.

Cheers... Rick

Hi again

Another tidbit. If you are sticking with basic CHM settings you might also want to ensure that you have the following options enabled along with that Single Click.

The single click option causes other books to collapse as a different book is clicked to be expanded.
