Subject:Robohelp training- Atlanta From:Gwen Barnes <gwen -dot- barnes -at- MUSTANG -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 22 Dec 1994 15:45:57 GMT
-> I would like to locate a training seminar or course for Robohelp in t
-> Atlanta area. Anyone know of any? If not, how has everyone learned
-> am teaching myself and it would be faster with a course.
I taught myself -- in my case perseverance paid off. It comes with a
nice tutorial in the book, which goes over most of the major points.
That and a little experimentation got me over the hump.
-> Also, those who have used, or are using, have you had serious problem
-> your system crashing? It has been taken off my system because my com
-> was so unstable that I was down for days at a time. It's been off fo
-> months now, and it's just ridiculous. The Lan group has blamed Roboh
-> (and even me!) for destroying Windows files. How about some feedback
I think WordBasic has some memory leaks or resource leaks. It's a good
idea periodically to save everything and get right out of Word and
windows, then reload. If you have a lot more fonts installed than you
really need, this eats a lot of resources, and you might want to
consider using a font manager of some kind to add and remove fonts on
the fly. Consider adding memory to your PC, and verify that your Windows
virtual memory settings are proper for your system. I'm running a 486/66
with 16 megs RAM and it's performing reliably for me, so I'm confident
your problem can be resolved.
I am reluctant to blame Robohelp specifically for these kinds of
problems (I've run across them too) -- since many other macro-intensive
activities produce the same kinds of crashes.
