You can "merge" additional Help+Manual projects ("modules") into your current project by inserting them in your Table of Contents, in the same way as inserting a new topic. This also makes it possible to use conditional output include options on entire modules in the same way as on individual topics.
Modules are inserted in the TOC in the same way as topics, so you can apply include options to entire modules in the same way as to topics. A module include option can include or exclude an entire project with its entire directory tree, all its chapters, sub-chapters and topics and all its invisible topics as well. If the module also has child modules a single module include option will include or exclude the module with all its children.
Modules can also have their own include options in all the chapters and topics in the module. These will also be evaluated and applied when you publish the entire modular project.
See Working with Modular Help Systems for details on creating and using modular projects.
In a project containing child modules select the child module you want to include or exclude by clicking on its Table of Contents entry in the TOC of the master project.
Including or excluding entire modules:
1.Select Change > Include in Builds the Project > Manage Topics.
2.Select all the options you want to apply by clicking in the boxes next to the options' names. You can select multiple options.
Including or excluding module topics and chapters:
Just select the chapters inside the module and apply include options as you would for normal topics and chapters. You can also use conditional text include options for content inside the chapters in the normal way. (Editing for child projects needs to be activated for this to be possible.)
Before excluding, a module generate a project report to make sure that excluding the module will not create any dead links. (Links with targets in other help files and projects are listed in the reports.) You can get around this problem by creating links between modules with A-keywords.
The include option for the current output format is always selected automatically. Any other include options must be selected manually. However, if you select user-defined include options you must always also select at least the option for the current output format.
1.Select Publish in the File menu or in the Project tab.
All modules whose Include Options match the Include Options selected here will be included in your output.
2.Select your publishing options, then click on Publish Now to publish.
