Adobe RoboHelp: Get the New Responsive Layout

One of the hottest new features introduced in Adobe RoboHelp 11 is Responsive HTML5 layouts. The Responsive HTML5 output dynamically changes the way the content is presented based on the device the reader is using. For example, while a reader on a desktop might see a traditional table of contents on the right side of the page, someone using a smart phone will see a table of contents that is optimized for touch:

Add Facebook Commenting to RoboHelp Output

One of the missing features of RoboHelp output is the ability for readers to comment your topics. There are several free commenting systems available you can use on any website, including RoboHelp output. In this post I will show you how to add Facebook commenting to Responsive HTML5 output.

A few weeks ago I showed you how you can use master pages to control the headers and footers of a generated Microsoft Word document. But setting a single header and footer for your entire Word document may not be what you need. The Table of Contents may need a different header and footer than the actual content.

When importing or generating Microsoft Word documents with RoboHelp, one of the chief weaknesses has always been the lack of support for Word's headers and footers.
