I've converted from Robohelp V3 to Flare recently and could use a bit of help: is RoboHelp's linked files (where you merge files into the parent, using specific link_chms) the same thing as Global Project Linking? Is there any way to have it mimic that function? I maintain a big help file (300+ pages) and from that file, we link to our sub-help files. The RoboHelp setup was ideal. Can this be done in Flare?
As others have mentioned, you can do what you're describing with Flare.
Global Project Linking is something else, though. It allows you to reference the content in one Flare project into another project. This would, for example, allow you to maintain your css in one project and use it in all your other projects, or have a common group of snippets, variables, master pages, certain topics, etc. It works by importing the linked files into the second and subsequent projects (similar to importing Word or FrameMaker files).
In short, it's very useful, but it's purpose is different from what you are describing.
