Mar

Merged help is the process of combining outputs from multiple RoboHelp projects into a single help system. While the content is created from multiple projects, your users see a single, integrated help system.

Over the next couple of weeks I will teach you how to create merged help for several output formats. Since RoboHelp's layouts work differently, I will go over each layout in turn. 

Why Merge Help?

Generally speaking, if any of the following items are true in your...

Baggage files are attachments for your help system. You use these for attaching PDF-files, Excel, Powerpoint presentations, etc. The only downside is that RoboHelp doesn't have a report function to keep track of all; the places you reference the baggage files in your project.

I love automation! I enjoy working smart. But I positively love it to simply to sit back, drink some tea, and have a script do my work for me.

When you are creating content for the web, you have to keep in mind that you can only use a limited set of fonts: the Web Safe Fonts. Web Safe Fonts are fonts that are available on all browsers and devices. This includes fonts like Arial and Times New Roman. Other fonts such as Wingdings will only work on specific browsers. In this case, it will only work on Internet Explorer on Windows. This means that you can’t just use...

Adobe RoboHelp: In Word We Trust

If you have attempted to create printed documentation with RoboHelp, there is a good chance you have run into a macro error. RoboHelp uses Word for printed documentation, and this error occurs if Word's security settings don't allow macros.

You can enable macros in Word, but that may not be enough. Some Help Authors receive unspecified errors when generating printed documentation even with macros enabled. To solve this, RoboHelp projects must be added to Word's trusted locations. I'll...

A few weeks ago I showed you how you can use multilevel lists to easily create complex lists with multiple levels. But multilevel lists are far more powerful than I could show you in a single article. This week, I'm going to expand on the multi-level list theme by teaching you how to add sub-numbers to lists.

Sub-numbering is important for many procedures and legal documents. You simply can't have sub numbering in RoboHelp...

Multilevel lists are an often overlooked RoboHelp feature... a shame because multilevel lists are very powerful. As the name suggests, Multilevel lists allow you to create complex lists with multiple levels. For example: consider what you would have to do if you need a list that uses upper alphanumeric characters on the first level, lower roman on the second level and bullets on the third level.

You can achieve the numbering scheme shown above by using a standard numbered list, but...

Adobe RoboHelp: Add Custom Location to Open Project Dialog

One of the great annoyances of RoboHelp for me has always been the Open Project dialog. This dialog shows a list of folders on the left site for easy access. But I never use any of the default folders so that means clicking until I end up at the folder where my projects are stored. Very annoying!
