Understanding Output Explorer
Output Explorer is available in both ePublisher Express and ePublisher Designer. Output Explorer displays all of the files generated by ePublisher.
The following figure shows Output Explorer.
 
The output files displayed in the Output Explorer depend on the item you select in Document Manger. Output Explorer displays items as follows:
*If you have a source document selected in Document Manager, ePublisher displays the source document group in Output Explorer. The source document group displayed in Output Explorer contains the Files group, which lists all of the generated topic files, the Images group, which lists all of the generated images for your output, and the Reports group, which lists Styles, Links, Accessibility, Filenames, and Topics reports.
*If you have a top-level group selected in Document Manager, ePublisher displays the top-level group in Output Explorer. The top-level group displayed in Output Explorer contains the Navigation group, which lists the entry-point file for the generated output based on the active target selected in the project, and the Reports group, which lists Styles, Links, Accessibility, Filenames, and Topics reports.
*If you have a subgroup selected in Document Manager, ePublisher displays the subgroup in Output Explorer. The subgroup contains the entry-point file for the generated output.
If you have more than one top-level group in Document Manager, in addition to displaying the top-level group you select in Document Manager in Output Explorer, ePublisher also displays a Merge Output group in Output Explorer. The Merge Output group displays the merged entry-point file created from each top-level group entry point file. You can use the merged entry-point file ePublisher automatically creates when you have more than one top-level group in Document Manager to created merged help systems.
For more information about merged help systems, see “Merging Help Systems (Multivolume Help)”.
