Deleting Individual Project Elements

To delete an individual style, script, topic type or window outside of the Organizer:

1.   Click the Projects icon.

2.   In the left pane of the project editor, choose the appropriate item.

3.   In the right pane, right-click the element to be deleted, then click Delete.

To delete an individual index keyword or group:

1.   Click the Index icon.

2.   Ensure that the appropriate category is displayed by choosing Groups or Keywords from the Index toolbar.

3.   Right-click the element to be deleted, then click Delete.

If you delete a script or window that is assigned to one or more styles, Doc-To-Help also detaches the deleted element from those styles.

You can also use the Organizer dialog box to delete individual project elements:

1.   On the Project menu, click Organizer.

The Organizer dialog box opens.

2.   Initially, all elements in the active project are displayed in the list on the left side of the dialog box. Use the Show elements list to view a specific type (groups, keywords, scripts, styles, or windows).

3.   Select the Confirm before deleting check box if you want the Organizer dialog box to prompt you before deleting individual elements.

4.   Select one or more elements in the list on the left, then click Delete. When you are finished, click the Close button in the lower right corner of the dialog box.
