RoboHelp to PowerPoint

Mar 20, 2008 3:11 AM

Can anyone suggest a way to re-use selected RoboHelp topics in a Powerpoint presentation? So far I've tried producing some Word output and sending it to PowerPoint but this feature seems to be intended more for outlining so I can get headings and text into slides but no graphics.

    Hi lindakx and welcome to our community

    A strange request.

    I'm guessing your best bet here would be to use a screen capture utility. Capture the topics as images and pop them into PowerPoint on different slides.

    Perhaps we might offer better information if you can enlighten us on exactly what it is you are hoping to accomplish.

    Cheers... Rick

    Hi Linda

    Helps to know what your goal is. Unfortunately, aside from what I suggested with the screen captures, I can't think of a way to accomplish it. At least not as you or someone directing you is probably expecting. Where the resulting PowerPoint would contain editable text and images.

    I tend to pride myself at being able to think outside the box with things. But unfortunately I'm coming up dry on this one. Maybe someone else here has a suggestion and will chime in. If something comes to mind, I'll be back to update the post.

    Cheers... Rick

    You might try going in the opposite direction (pulling from PowerPoint, instead of pushing to).

    In PowerPoint, you can select Insert > Slides from Files... to insert .htm files. You might have to work the formatting, though; the initial conversion is not very pretty (lists, for example).

    Good luck,
