Optimize Publish Speed

When you are publishing this format Help+Manual generates a temporary folder for the intermediate source files that are used to create the final output. These are all the files that go into your final documentation, including the graphics. You can optimize publishing speed for large projects by changing the location of these temporary files and whether they are deleted or not between publishing operations.

Similarly, optimizing the location of your output folder and the project itself can also speed up publication by reducing the time required to write all the necessary files.
