Hello everyone!
Is there any Debug mode for CHM help?
It'll be useful to see Topic ID, Help Context and Project Name in CHM topic pages (when i press F1).
Cause i spend a lot of time to figure it out sometimes.

Or maybe there are some other formats where i can see it right in the help page (html or any other)?

Hi Mikhail,

No, CHM doesn't have any debug mode like that. The CHM system was created by Microsoft in 1998 with Windows 98 and abandoned almost immediately. It has not been developed further since then. :roll:

Within Help+Manual, however, you can see all this information in the Topic Options tab (left of the topic editor window) while you are editing the topic.
