Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding glossary terms, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
One other topic we need to discuss when creating projects here in RoboHelp is…the Glossary, and a Glossary is going to give your users a list of words and…their definitions related to topics covered in your project.…So just think of a Glossary as an opportunity to enhance your project and make it better.…In fact, you'll find many of your users are actually going to use your Index and…Glossary even more than your Table of Contents.…So let's just start by viewing our Glossary pod.…We can do that by going to the tab for How To Use LDC references to the default Glossary.…
You'll also notice in your Project Manager pod a plus sign next to Glossary, and…there is, just like we saw with the Table of Contents and Index, a default…Glossary and of course right now there's nothing in it.…Now all we need to do is start adding Terms.…Right at the very top you can see there is a field for Term.…We'll click in there and let's just type in Navigation bar.…Maybe people aren't familiar with what that is.…Press Enter and it gets added.…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
