Search in CHM files

I imported a CHM file without problems, but is is not searchable.
Has any one a solution please?
Thank you

Hi Hartmut,
1. What do you mean by "imported a CHM file"?
2. How do you import the CHM file?
3. If it's imported into UR, it should be searchable.

I used a free converter to convert the CHM file to a pdf. The professional version of UR will keyword pdf files. I'm sorry but I cannot remember the details of how I did this.

A compiled HTML file (.CHM) is not listed as a file that UR will parse for keywords.

I imported it like other files, the acess to the chm in the external viewer is very fast.
But UR does not search in the CHM file.

I tried several CHM-Pdf Converter and did not succeed the pdf is corrupted.
Well, sometimes I downlaod small web-sites and want to include them in an UR-file. I do this with Office Explorer. UR cannot import the folder bewaring teh structure and the internal linking in the webside. tehrefor I export from the Office Explorer download as CHM or MHT. I think I have to choose MHT, which can to be imported and is searchable, but the access is not so fast, and the MHT cannot by search over the whole file, as you can do in CHM viewer.

Hi Hartmut,
Unlike most chm files, UltraRecall.chm is heavily hypertexted. In addition, it consists of mainly htm files. Apparently, the UltraRecall.chm is produced by a third-party help authoring tool. Of course, ideally Kinook could release a UR manual in pure URD without links to htm files.
