You can view a list of all context-sensitive Help (CSH) identifiers that have been created in your project but have not yet been assigned to any topics. You can double-click a row to open the alias file in the Analyzer interface, which lets you assign the unused CSH ID to a topic. You can also select the row and click File>Send to Flare to open the alias file in the Flare project. For more information about CSH, see the online Help in Flare.
- Open a project.
Select the View ribbon. In the Dynamic Reports section, select More Reports>Unused Items.
The Unused Items window pane opens, which allows you to view various unused elements in the project (such as bookmarks, condition tags, content files, CSH IDs, images, variables, styles, file tags, and topics not linked).
- Click the drop-down field at the top of the window pane and select Unused CSH IDs. The
unused CSH IDsin the project are listed.
To see more of the information in the window pane, drag the divider bar to make the pane wider:
- CSH ID Displays the CSH identifier that is not being used.
- File Displays the alias file where the CSH ID is located. You can use the alias file to assign the unused CSH ID to a topic, unless you prefer to delete the CSH ID.
- Definition Displays the unique numerical value associated with the CSH ID.
If a certain number of items have been found, page navigation buttons in the local toolbar may be enabled. You can use these buttons to go to additional pages to display more items. You also have the option to view all items at once in one long list. This is called the View All option. You can toggle these views by clicking the View All/View as Pages button in the local toolbar. The button displays the opposite of whatever view is currently activated (e.g., If the View All option is currently active, the button shows View as Pages to indicate that if clicked, the button will switch the window pane to the View as Pages option).
If you want to remove any
unused CSH IDsfrom Analyzer, as well as from the project being analyzed, select the CSH IDin the list and click in the local toolbar.
You can open
the alias file for any CSH IDin the list to view or modifyit in the Alias Editor. You can open the alias filein the Analyzer interface or in the Flare project.
