TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I see so many RoboHelp users become extremely confused between the
"WebHelp Start Page" and the "Default Topic". They almost always
incorrectly believe they are one and the same.
The WebHelp Start page is what the user links to to open the help. It
has many functions, such as sniffing the browser, dividing the browser
into different frames, etc. And the last action that occurs is that the
Default Topic is presented in the Topic pane of the Frameset.
So for anyone reading this thread, what Kevin is referring to is the
Default Topic, not the WebHelp Start Page.
Cheers... Rick :)
