Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a master project, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
All right, the first step in merging a number of projects together into one is…to create the master project.…And the master project typically is going to be an empty container, it might have…a default topic, but it's the child project you reference that will store all of the content.…So here from the Starter, the best option for creating an empty container, maybe…with one default topic, is to create a new blank project.…We'll select that, and we'll just give it a name, How to use LDC.…
Notice down below there will be a first topic created, the default title being First Topic.…We can change that right from here.…Let's type in How to Use lynda.com.…And when we click Finish, we'll have the beginnings of our master…project. Really, all it is at this point is a brand-new blank project with our default topic,…How to use lynda.com.…We'll click and drag over the placeholder text, delete it with the Delete key,…and let's just type in the year.…
We'll save that by clicking the Save button.…Now we have the shell that is going to be our master project.…

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.
