Remove text-only topics

You can remove text-only topics in Microsoft HTML Help projects when changes to dialog box controls and fields affect context-sensitive Help.

1)Select Project > Open > Pods > Output Setup. The Output Setup pod appears.

2)Open the Context-Sensitive Help and What's This? Help Files folders.

3)Double-click the topic file (.txt).

4)Select the topic to remove.

5)Click Delete.

Version-control projects may have more options.


If your developer provides updated map files, replace them before removing the topic.

Removing text-only topics leaves the topic ID and map number in the map file. You can remove unused Map IDs if you no longer need them.
