Managing Topic Files

When you are working in the Project Files section, the Project Explorer functions as a file manager for your topic files and the folders where they are stored. If you are working in uncompressed XML format (Professional and Server versions only, .hmxp project file) the files and folders are stored directly on your hard drive. In the compressed single-file .hmxz format the files and folders are stored inside the compressed .hmxz file, which is actually a normal ZIP archive.
