Optimize content for search

RoboHelp supports many ways to optimize the content for search:

Make Office and PDF files searchable

(WebHelp/Pro, FlashHelp/Pro) Users can search for baggage files (such as PDF, Word, and Excel files) in published output. To appear in search results, these baggage files must be refer­enced in a topic through a hyperlink.

note:    You must have iFilter for Microsoft and PDF installed on to enable baggage file search.

Exclude unreferenced topics from search

The Exclude Unreferenced Topics From Output option in layout properties ensures that search results are displayed only from topics that are referenced in the following project components:

TOC

Index

Browse sequences

Default topic

CSH map IDs

See Also keywords

Related Topics keywords

Hyperlinks

Exclude specified baggage file types from search

(Multiscreen HTML5, WebHelp, FlashHelp, and AIR Help) The Exclude Baggage File Types From Search option lets you exclude baggage files of specified types from search. For example, you can exclude all Excel files in your projects from search.

note:    In merged projects, configure this search setting for each project.

Exclude unreferenced baggage files from search

The Exclude Unreferenced Baggage Files From Search option ensures that search results display baggage files only if they are referenced from topics through hyperlinks and the index and TOC selected in layout properties. If the Exclude Unreferenced Topics From Output option is selected, RoboHelp considers only referenced topics; otherwise, it considers all topics in the project.
