Multiple topics for single index entry

First let me say that this is an excellent application and is proving very useful.

I am working on a project where several properties are (deliberately!) duplicated in different namespaces, for example "Age" or "DateOfCalculation". Using the index, when you select one of these properties you get the usual help file dialog box listing the possible topics and their location. Unfortunately the titles of the topics are identical so it is not possible to see in which namespace.class they are in.

I suspect that there may be no cure for this - it is just a feature of the help file structure.

However I wonder if it might be possible to have an option for the topic title to be ClassName-Property when the builder compiles rather than just Property.

The index for the namespace topics and the topic titles are generated by Sandcastle and is thus controlled by its transformations. You can ask about this problem in the MSDN Documentation forum.
