2.On the Project tab, in the Topics & Templates group, click Properties.
3.In the dialog, click Build Options, and then define the conditions for the selected item.

Default Build Options of TOC Items
Build Options of a help topic or TOC item allow you to define when this item should be included or excluded to/from a compilation.
By default, a topic or TOC item has the All Builds condition selected in its build options, so it is included into all compilations with any build tags.
Keywords and AKeywords
When a topic is excluded from a compilation, all the Keywords and A-Keywords which are associated with that topic are automatically excluded. A Keyword and A-Keyword is included into the output help system only if it has at least one associated topic which is also included into the compilation.
When you exclude a topic from a compilation, the hyperlinks that link to that topic from other topics become invalid. You can specify a "Dead Links" processing mode or use other techniques to prevent such invalid hyperlinks in a compiled help system. For more information, please refer to this topic.
