Styler 6.0 m010: Want root element/title to "chunk" and wrap HTML Help
I want the title of my root element to be used to build a top level "Help Topic" in my .CHM. Currently all of the chapters are listed at the top level as siblings. I'd like them to be children of the root element.
I have set HTML Chunking = yes for the root but that's not doing it.
Thanks, Clay. That will get me the entry in the TOC, but it does not "wrap" the chapters.It is the only context set as division level 1. Chapter/Appendix and a few others are 2. I have 3, 4, and 5s.
That said, I am able to hack the .hhc before compiling the decompiled .CHM's HTML into a DMP image to get the wrap but for now that's a hands on fix. It'll get me through next week, but is obviously not sustainable.
Also, for anyone keeping score, it appears that .CHMs built from Editor/PE 6.0 will not compile in DMP 5.3 (unless you remove the anchors from the .hhc ... that is, the "#styler.id.220.127.116.11" that point to <a<br/>name="styler.id.18.104.22.168"> inside your html ... which obviously breaks your TOC). They will compile in DMP 5.4. I ran into another oddity: If your chapters are emiting a non-breaking space, that space does not survive through to the DMP Consumer image in 5.4. It shows up as a "bad" character splat. Specifically, you get "Chapter 1%Title Goes Here" where the % is a bad-character replacement glyph. Is that English?
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! See you on the other side, a few pounds heavier 😉
