Trying to have assembly documented but not members (odd but reasonable)

Here's the situation:

I have one assembly consisting of only a VStudio-generated dataset (lots of classes).

I want the assembly to be listed in the doc with the assembly summary. However, I do not want the classes to be listed in the doc as I don't want to add documentation to that.

I added the summary text for the assembly and used APIFilter to uncheck all classes inside the assembly (this deselected the assembly as well).

Is there a way to achieve what I am trying to do?

Thank you.

No. If you remove all classes it turns off the namespace as there's nothing to document and MRefBuilder won't generate anything. You'd be better off just creating one or more additional content pages to document the namespaces and using the Additional Content Only plug-in to build the help file. You can use the topic transform to make them look like the selected presentation style. See the help file for details.
