When customizing your help file, you will often include files with your help file that were not generated by Help Producer. These files are typically files that cannot be pasted into a Word document or are not part of the visible content, such as CSS files, Java Scripts, or videos. To keep these files separated from the files generated by Help Producer, you can create a Resource Directory. When the help project is exported, Help Producer will create an output directory and copy all files and sub-folders from the resource directory to the output directory. If this feature is used properly, the output directory will only contain generated content, and hence may be safely discarded or excluded from backups.
Note The files in the resource directory are merely copied to the output directory, and are not necessarily included in the help file. To ensure that your resource files are included in the help file, add the files to the list of include files.

Add files to the include files list
Generated files, such as HTML topic pages and images, are included automatically in the help files. Files that should be included manually are files that are used in or linked by HTML pages, such as scripts and cascaded styles sheets.
