Some Downloaded CHMs Don't Display Contents

Different browsers handle downloading Microsoft's Compiled HTML Help (CHM) files differently. With some browsers, even though you download and save the file to your local hard drive, the default behaviour is to hide the CHM's contents; however, you can easily rectify this.

To enable a CHM for viewing:

  1. Save the CHM file to your hard drive.
  2. Right-click on the saved CHM file and choose Properties; then on the General tab click Unblock.
  3. Click OK.

The HotDocs Publications team cannot respond to technical support or project consulting issues. We are mainly interested in problems with the documentation itself—such as erroneous information, grammatical and spelling errors, or suggestions for topics to include in the next release of the software.
