How to add generated documentation link to Conceptual Content

It seems from the docs that if I want to link from a Conceptual Content page to generated API documentation I can use the Entity References window set for Type Code Entities; it this correct?

My problem is that no Code Entities are listed (I've tried pressing Refresh). I've tried this with the project file added to Documentation Sources, with the XML comment file, with the (debug) output DLL and combinations thereof.

In every case, the help file is build okay with my TOC including my manual Conceptual Content followed by the generated API documentation.

Code entity references are too numerous to just list in the tool window since it includes the entire base .NET Framework. As such, you must enter something in the Find text box (a text string or regular expression) and hit Enter or the Go button to find matches.

Thanks, that explains it.

Perhaps you could add a disabled dummy entry to the result list to inform us thicko's to use the search box...
