Authoring - Overview

A glossary is a list of terms in a specific domain of knowledge with the definitions for those terms. Traditionally, a glossary appears at the end of a book or a folder and includes terms within that book or folder which are either newly introduced or at least uncommon. In a more general sense, a glossary contains explanations of concepts relevant to a certain field of study or action. In HelpServer the glossary terms are created and maintained in a dedicated folder in the project. Once created the glossary terms can be used as expandable link objects in topics over the entire project.
