I wish I could say I had poor quality graphics; I actually have none! I am trying to use Robohelp for the first time and all my screenshots that were imported by reference into my FM (version 8.0p277) document show as whitespace in RH (version 7.03). I understand it is best practice to Add a FM file by reference within RH, which was what I did. A list of the screenshots that I had originally saved as tiff files in an Images folder in FM (outside the book file because some are also referenced by other books) appear in my project with jpg extensions. When I attempt to edit them, they appear as blank screens. I assume that I've made a newbie mistake.
I have somewhat answered my own question. I tried Adding the FM book components individually instead of adding the book and my screenshots now appear. I'm not sure what difference that made, but being new, there's a lot I need to learn.
I'm getting the same behavior (w/ FM 8 p227, and RH 7.03.001). Have you found any solutions or workarounds?
I noticed that if you export the content directly from FM to HTML the equations look somewhat better (as FM does the exporting in gif format) but how does one instruct RH to import FM content and keep the equations in GIF format? Any clues?
I only recently got back to experimenting with FM (8.0p277) to RH. (Fortunately, we found a solution for the client where they could use the PDF instead of HTML, so my issues with RH not importing my screenshots became less urgent.) Most recently, I found that if I converted all my FM screenshots (.tif files) to .png and imported the FM book to RH by reference, where I had blank spaces previously, my screenshots appeared. I do have 2 graphic insets that contain a sample snippet of code that does appear pixellated in RH, however. Still some work to do, but am making progress...
Has this been fixed in RH9? I am using ver 8. I have tried various tweaks in the RH settings. The only solution is to drop images in manually but then that defeats the single source functionality TCS is supposed to give us.
I know nothing about FM but I am aware there is a blog that may be relevant.
Hope it helps.
