Open Help & Manual at a specified TopicID

Unread postby Uros Ahacic » Wed Aug 28, 2019 8:42 am


Is it possible to open a project in Help & Manual and jump to a specified TopicID, something like this:
Code: Select all
HELPMAN.EXE "C:\Projects\MyProject.hmxz" /TopicID:my-topic-2

Hi Uros,

No, this is not supported, sorry. However, if you set Help+Manual to reopen the project that was open when you last closed the program, it will then open at the topic you were working on. (View > Program Options > General: Open last help project(s) on start).
