Adobe RoboHelp:Importing Google Docs
As more companies make the move to Google products (over 5 million and counting), more content is created with Google Docs. This is understandable as Google Docs allows people to simultaneously work on documents and see each other's edits in real time. Personally, I use Google Docs all the time to make content reviews easier and avoid attachments in email.
For working with RoboHelp, there is a single downside: The documents live on a Google server and you can't import or link them to RoboHelp. Fortunately, you can download Google Documents and import those into RoboHelp!
Importing Google Docs into RoboHelp
- Open your Google Docs document.
- Choose File > Download as > Web page (.html, zipped).
- Open the zip file and extract the file and images folder to a location of your choice.
- Open a RoboHelp project.
- Choose Project > Import > HTML.
- Select the HTML file and click Open.
The document is now available as a topic. Assign the correct style sheet and update the topic as you see fit.
Tip: Are you planning on updating the Google Docs document? Or do you need fine control how the document is converted to a topic? Export the document as a Word document. You leverage RoboHelp's Word integration for full control.
