Export RoboHelp to Microsoft Word 2013

Jan 13, 2014 7:06 PM

How do you export the RoboHelp files into Microsoft Word 2013?  I've tried doing it through the application but I am receiving the following error "A supported version of Microsoft Word does not exist. Please install Microsoft Word 2000 or newer.".  Is there a way to go around that when I have the most recent version of Microsoft Word?

    No. You have to have a supported version of Word. What version of RH are you using? If we know that we can tell you what version you need.

    There is a workaround for creating printed documentation using Word 2013 and Robohelp 10 but not for importing Word files. See the comments in the link below:

    Colum - That was not patched by Adobe to the best of my knowledge and I cannot see any reference in that blog to this problem. There is a workaround in Using Rh10 on my site.

    Peter's suggestion works for me. (I'm using Office 2013.)

     

    Basically, you just right-click the Single Source Layout and then select Properties. You'll notice that the window that opens is the one you you to generate Word docs.

     

    I read the description for RoboHelp 11 and it says it supports Office 2013, so you won't need to do that if you upgrade to 11, but it's such an easy workaround that I wouldn't bother just for that. (We're probably going to upgrade soon just because we're now 2 versions behind.)
