If you want to improve the standing of Oxygen WebHelp in a feature comparison matrix with other web publishing platforms, you might consider enhancing it with facet-based search, based on <topicmeta> and <topicsubject> DITA elements.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

Unfortunately, in the current WebHelp implementation this is not possible. We already have this feature logged to our tracking tool and I have added your feedback to it.

Regards,
Ionela

Related suggestions:
  • Introduce facet-based filters to the WebHelp "index terms" ("A-Z" index) page. For example, to show/hide index terms by facet.
  • Introduce facet-based filters to the WebHelp TOC. For example, to show/hide (or, to avoid structural discontinuities, highlight/dim) TOC entries by facet.
