To compile an HTML Help (CHM) file:
1.On the Project menu, click Compile (or press F9).
2.At the dialog-box, select HTML Help as the output help format.
3.Select build tags, and other compilation options that will be used with the given compilation.
You can compile an HTML Help (CHM) file by using the Project|Compile|Compile HTML Help menu command or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+H. This command skips the step of selecting compilation options and automatically applies options that were selected previously (or default options) for this output help format.
By default, HelpSmith will put the compiled .CHM file in the same directory as the help project (.HSM) file. If the project has never been saved, HelpSmith will put the .CHM into the HelpSmith's folder in the Windows' "My Documents" directory.
You can define an alternative directory for the compiled help file. To do so:
1.On the Project menu, click the Options command.
2.Select HTML Help on the left side bar at the dialog-box.
3.In the Output Directory field, specify the directory where HelpSmith should put the compiled HTML Help (CHM) file.
4.Then click OK.
