I'm using RoboHelp X5. I can publish the WebHelp version, but I'm unable
to directly publish in PDF. It seems I have to go publish in Word first,
then convert the Word document to PDF which is very clumsy. It would
help a lot if I could jump right into PDF.

Under "Single Source Layouts," when I click "Printed Documentation," the
screen pops up nicely. But under "PDF Support," the check box for
"Generate PDF" is unavailable.

Any ideas how I can make X5 generate PDFs directly?
