Flare 2018 CHM Compile Issue

Postby dandam on Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:38 am

My CHM file grew from 1.5K to over 5K after upgrading from Flare V11 to Flare 2018. The compiler appears to be inserting a ton of content from a sister CHM that is generated from same Flare project.

I had this same problem previously under Flare V11. It was caused by a hyperlink to the wrong topic--a topic in the sister CHM--which caused a chain reaction. The compiler included everything hyperlinked to that topic, and then hyperlinked to the next level, etc., etc., until pretty much the entire other CHM got included. I resolved the problem by removing that errant hyperlink.

Well, upon upgrading the Flare 2018, that problem has returned!! I've gone over the TOC with a fine-tooth comb and cannot figure out what is making the connection.

My resolution is to compile the CHM in Flare V11. Thankfully I still have it installed!
