Use Project Reference as Documentation Source

I have a solution with about 8 projects and a SHFB project as well. I'd like to add my other projects as references to the SHFB project and have SHFB generate help documentation for those projects based on the project outputs. That is, instead of adding the Documentation Sources manually and creating a static link to the DLLs for those projects. Is there any way to accomplish this?

SHFB supports using the solution file or the project files as documentation sources. When done that way, SHFB parses them to figure out the project outputs and references. When adding the documentation source, just change the file type filter to "Visual Studio Solution Files" or "Visual Studio Project Files".

That's wonderful! Sorry I didn't notice that before.

SHFB has come a long way since I first used it two years ago - great job!
