From your screenshot, it looks like the option "Include Topic in Content" is enabled in the book's configuration in TotheWord. Please try disabling that and see if the "Note about John" is still hidden. I found when I enable that option, the topic is hidden, but not when that option is disabled.

Greetings Mathetes, JG, [edit]
I have added a new button for <hide_topic> with a better explanation in version 1.9.3h
Here is what was happening.
If <hide_topic> was on the line with <:> like:

Code: Select all

<:>Example topic <hide_topic> 
(which made sense based on the button)

And "Include Topic in Content" was not checked then it was like <hide_topic> never existed.

So it is better to put <hide_topic> on the next line after <:> like:

Code: Select all

<:>Example topic
<hide_topic>Content
Also don't put it inside of </:> make sure it is outside of this like:

Code: Select all

<:>Example topic
one two </:>
<hide_topic>Content
However, none of this matters if "Include Topic in Content" is checked.

Is there any way possible when using an html source file to have partial text in a topic searchable but hidden? I tried using htm tags to define font-size and opacity, but in theWord the minimum font size allowed is 1px and the opacity option does not seem to work in theWord. Html also has a content-visibility option, which doesn't work either in theWord. Is there any other way to allow for searchable text without it being visible? I want the topic visible except for that specific text.

So in the topic tree or in the content?
If in the topic tree then I would do a sub-topic that is hidden. Something like:

Code: Select all

<link>Hide me<hide_topic></link>
However this will not be in the content only in the topic tree list.

But that's not user searchable. I'm trying to keep the content view from looking cluttered while still be able to search for certain key data.

Ah so not in the topic tree (my solution was the topic tree) Though even there probably not user searchable
You are talking about in the content area?

Yes. Using an html font tag with font-size set to "0" would work, but the minimum size theWord accepts is "1".

I am having problems with Greek characters displaying correctly in a simple popup. What needs to be done in order for them to display properly using the following code? Using Windows 7 & TotheWord D1.9.4b.
