Managing links to excluded topics

If you exclude content from output, broken links can occur in topics that reference the excluded content. RoboHelp manages most of these links as described in the following table.

Type of link


Browse sequence

An excluded topic doesn’t appear in the browse sequence

Image maps

If an image with an image map is excluded from output, the image map is removed.


An index keyword that is linked to a topic that is excluded doesn’t appear in the Index pane.

Link control

A link control (such as a Related Topic or Keyword Link) that references an excluded topic doesn’t display the topic.

Table of contents

A TOC book or page that is linked to an excluded topic doesn’t appear in the Contents pane.
