Hello, I am making manuals for different machines and some of the sections have the same copy. How can I bring in a reoccurring topic into a different manual? I can do it with snippet linked topic, but my pictures don't show up

Hi Melissa,

That is the right way to do it. To make the pictures show up you just need to add a reference to the folder containing the pictures to the Project Search Path in the project where you are using the snippet. You do this in Configuration > Common Properties > Project Search Path.

Important: Help+Manual finds the pictures by searching through the folders in the Search Path list from top to bottom. It will use the FIRST picture file it finds with a matching name. This makes it very easy to move your picture files around, but it also means you have to be careful to avoid duplicate file names. If you have different pictures with the same name in different folders, only the one in the earlier folder in the list will ever get used. 8)
