0 comment(s)

RoboHelp 2015 patch 2 introduces a great feature for Responsive HTML5: sitemaps. A sitemap is a file with a list of all topics in your output.

Using Conditional Build tags, you can mark topics or topic content. When the time comes to generate, you can choose to create conditions that control which tagged content is generated.
