Compiled file size ballooned , WinHelp, RoboHelp 9

Feb 13, 2012 12:16 AM

Tags: #robohelp9

I notice that the compiled .hlp files are now 2-4 times larger than when they where compiled with RH8..

 

We distribute on CD's and this is causing a major headache.

 

Anyone tried going back from RH9 to RH8?

    Hi,

     

    I verified this scenario with few RHW projects and found that WinHelp file size is not ballooning up. Please see the details below of verification environment.

     

            1)      OS:- WIN7 32 bit.

           2)      MS Word version:- Office 2007.

           3)      RHW versions:- RH8 and RH 9.

           4)      Help file generated:- WinHelp 4 and WinHelp2000 format.

     

    Please check for your working environment as this issue might be specific to some OS/MS Office version.

    Given that you will be generating WebHelp for RoboHelp for Word, do check that the content works in the main browsers, not just IE. I am not saying it will not, just check it does.

    You are further forward than I thought. Good news.

     

    Given that your content is a convert from RoboHelp for Word though, I would still recommend checking in the main browsers, unless you can dictate what browser is to be used.
