Not now. But you can file feature request at SourceForge

I think that merging of CHM could be very well integrated with new OLink
mechanism created by Bob. I have it on my To-Do list, but it is very
long :-(

I think that OLink way is good way. You will need to do 3 things. 

1. Links which goes beyond boundaries of one document (CHM file) should
be changed to olinks.
2. Change templates for olink slightly, so they will create links like
otherBook.chm::/page.html, instead of ../otherBook/page.html.
3. Create stylesheet which will create project files for almost empty
CHM from olink databases. This CHM will just reference all partials CHMs
and merge them.
