Create multiple topics upon import of single file

Postby kerimucci on Wed Feb 06, 2019 10:42 am

Hello,

Apologies if this is an obvious one, but I am stuck. I am importing an OpenAPI HTML file into my project, which the engineers automatically generate for our API. I am told there is a setting that will enable me to create multiple topics when importing this file, but I can't figure out where to set this. Ideally, I'd like the h1 headings within the file to each be the start of a new topic. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,
Keri

Offhand (and I'm not in Flare at the moment), I'm not sure if Flare offers a way to break an imported .htm file into more .htm files during its import process. But after the import, you could use the free Kaizen plug-in (https://www.kaizenplugin.com/) by Mattias Sanders. There are commands for breaking up by h1, h2, etc.

Hey Keri,

You can use the Kaizen Plugin "Topic splitter" to solve the problem. Here's a link to an animated GIF that shows how it works. https://www.improvementsoft.com/content ... 0_1280.png.

You can read more about the plugin at https://www.improvementsoft.com/content ... re%20(free).htm

Let me know how it goes, and if you need help!

Cheers,
Mattias

Thanks, guys!

Kaizen looks interesting. Msander, unfortunately all I can see is a PNG and the other link is broken.

Keri,
Did you discover a way to parse the pages within Flare.
