I'm new to RH10. I've started a new Technical Authoring role having taken 6 years out of the role... In my previous roles I've walked into the company and the styles and templeate were already set up and I just got on with the authoring part of the role. However, this time I'm starting from scratch, so am requiring some help.
I've used Robohelp in the past and decided this was the software to go along with. However, it's quite a bit different to how I remember it!
Currently I am using a trial of Robohelp 10. I have created a test project and managed to generate a Microsoft HTML Help file. I'm now trying to generate this into a printed document. Issues I'm having are:
I'm sure that mose of these are user error and probably down to my rusty authoring. But hoping that help on these will help me to move forward and loosen up the rustyness!!!
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Many thanks. You've pointed me in the right direction and this has helped fix most of my problems. One remaining problem I am having is to do with my Heading styles. I'm thinking it is to do with the same issue with point 2, so going to dig further. Just wanted to express my gratitude.
Make sure the heading in Rh is a straight H2 tag and in Word that Heading 2 really is a heading. So many times I have seen people call a paragraph style MyHeading2 or suchlike. That does not make it what Rh expects as a heading or what Word serves up as one.
