That check box should be available only if you install RoboPDF. That
should be on your RoboHelp X5 CD, and you can install it at any time.

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?
