I'm new to DocProject and Sandcastle. I noticed SHFB has "preview" feature that allows one to build a selected topic only, instead of the entire project.  Does DocProject have a similar feature?

Right now, I have to build the entire project in order to see how a topic would look in the final output, but that is extremely unproductive, because the APIs can take some time to build. Maybe there is a way to skip building the reference API, but I haven't configured out how to do that.

Any help would be much appreciated.

No, at the moment DocProject does not have a topic preview feature, but I'll consider adding one.

There's currently no option to skip building reference topics, although I guess you could remove the appropriate build steps by adding code to your project's Build Process Component.  It's probably not worth the effort though.
