You could try deleting the .fts file associated with your help file. The
WinHelp engine creates this file when you use the Find Setup Wizard, and stores
it in the \Windows\Help directory.
If that doesn't fix the problem, the following is reported to work in most

HELP! where do i find these options. If they don't exist, what do I do next?
I copied this project and changed its name. I can get it to generate, but
cannot get the Find and Index tabs to display. The original file does show
Please advise. Thanks for any input you may have.
If I understand you correctly, you renamed a Help project. What procedure did
you use to do this? Did you follow the instructions in RoboHelp Help? Did you
also rename the compiled Help output? If so, what was your procedure for to
rename the output? I had some trouble with this in the past. See my posting

If you rename a project or Help files incorrectly, the result can be a missing
index and content file, because RoboHelp doesn't know where to look. (And

probably only a few "someones" that can help. Please help me to help you.
I've created a book in which all of my chapter titles are on Master Pages (using a paragraphc style named DocTitle). I can't however, get the chapter titles to show up in the TOC, even though the TOC is setup to include the DocTitle paragraph.
Does FrameMaker allow Master Page material to be included in a TOC, or am I out of luck?
Thanks in advance!
