First of all, let me say that this add-in is the bee's knees. It's been a big help in creating API documentation for our class library projects, so heap big thanks.

My question is this: I'm not interested in creating HTML documentation for these libraries. Our developers prefer the .CHM format. What would I need to do to skip the HTML generation altogether, if this is even possible?

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

As for your request, it's certainly understandable that you'd want to skip the longest part of the process ;)

However, the HTML Help Workshop, which is used to build the .chm file, requires the help topics to be in individual HTML documents and it's Sandcastle's job to generate them. Unfortunately, I don't think that it's possible to skip that step.

Makes sense. Thanks.
