A glossary is a list of terms with their corresponding definitions, just like a dictionary. You can specify the definitions of terms in your project that you think are difficult to understand by your readers. A single glossary file can contain multiple terms and you can have multiple such glossaries in a project. You can decide which glossary file goes into your output, based on your audience.
You can access, add, remove, and edit glossaries in an open project from the Glossary panel of RoboHelp.
You can easily add a glossary term's definition in the content of a desired topic. The term is then highlighted as a hyperlink in your topic. When you generate the output, your reader can then click the term to view its specified definition which displays as expanding text. To add a glossary term definiton in a topic, follow these steps:
In the Glossary panel, drag-and-drop a desired glossary term to the term's location in your open topic.
The term is then highlighted as a hyperlink. In the project's output, a reader can click the highlighted term to view its definition. See Generate output for details on how to publish a project.
Out of the several glossary files that you've created in a project, you can use one of the glossaries in your output. To specify which glossary goes into your output, follow these steps:
In the Glossary field, select your desired glossary file from the drop-down list.
The selected glossary file is then included in your output. See Generate output for details on how to generate the output.
