Subject:RoboHelp 8 and topics From:Malcolm Norman <malcolm -dot- norman -at- caris -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Fri, 26 Jun 2009 17:52:15 -0300
When I import a FrameMaker file or book into a Robohelp 8 project and
build the file(s) into Microsoft HTML Help, each file is treated as a
single topic. This means when I click a book icon in the CHM file's
Table of Contents, there only one topic and I have to scroll through it
in much the same way I would through a PDF file. I always thought that
help files should contain stand-alone topics.
Is there a way to tell RoboHelp to create separate topics from specified
paragraph tags (e.g. Heading2 -- create new topic, Heading3 -- create
new topic, etc.)?
We are evaluating RoboHelp, and this seems its biggest drawback.
I hope this makes sense.
