Customising help viewer

I have sort of managed to get part of the way but I'm stuck now.

In my x.hs file I have two presentations defined

main window
MeRLIn Rider - Online Help
merlinguide

whats new
Rider - Whats New?
whatsnew

the first one seems to work fine for the main help viewer but then I have a second menu item that I want to display in a secondary window and use the second presentation.
when the window is first displayed, it does seem to use the presentation settings, but then pretty immediately the title gets replaced - where from I don't know?

Can anyone explain?

Any pointers would be great.
Thanks.
Alka.

I'd already tried that and it seems to make no difference.
I'm using JH2.0.

There was a bug in V2.0 that caused certian presentation attributes not be recoginized in SecondaryWindows. Try the new V2.0_01 and see if it doesn't fix the problem.

Hi,

isn't there problem that you set the second presentation aslo as
default=true? I think only one presentation should be default. Try to
change second presentation to default=false if it helps.
