ToolBook has a built in glossary lookup feature which works like this:
Turn on the glossary feature
- Enable the glossary feature by....
- Turning on the Hotwords Link To Glossary Automatically checkbox on the Behavior tab of the Properties for Book dialog
Locate your terms and turn them into Hotwords
- Locate your glossary terms within fields in your book
- Select the glossary word/term and turn it into a hotword using the TEXT menu
Create your Glossary Term Definition Pages
- Create a new background in your book and name it glossary
- Create new pages, using this background, so that you have one page per glossary term
- The name of the page will be the glossary term itself
- Let's assume you have a term of "Banana"
- Locate the various words "Banana" in the various text fields in your book, and turn each of those terms into a hotword
- Create a page named "Banana" on a background named "Glossary" within your book
- When you click on one of those Banana hotwords, the glossary entry will be shown
- When you click on the shown definition page, that page will close
- The glossary can be placed in a secondary book, typically named glossary.tbk
- Specify this Glossary File Name on the Behavior tab of the Properties for Book dialog
Do not add a hyperlink to the hotwords in order to navigate to the glossary page - this lookup feature happens automatically when you enabled the Hotwords Link To Glossary Automatically feature.
If you do add a hyperlink to your hotwords, you're essentially building your own Glossary lookup feature. There is nothing wrong with building your own glossary feature to behave exactly the way you want, however if you do, ensure you turn OFF the Hotwords Link To Glossary Automatically feature.
