icon legend for RoboHelp HTML?

Apr 23, 2012 4:13 AM

Greetings, am evaluating RH9 to decide if it's a worthwhile purchase and am having a lot of difficulties in getting up and running.

After this long intro, the two questions for today are: is there an icon legend somewhere to be found?

I've got question marks on topics (imported a Word doc to create a project), and have no idea what they represent and what I should be doing to normalize the topics to be without these question marks.

Also, tried yesterday to import an HTML document with a lot of DIV sections (11 pages) and no topics were created in RoboHelp HTML. What would be the correct way to import it so that each DIV is a separate topic?

 

I'd really appreciate help in getting something working.

 

Many thanks, Donna

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    When replying there is a camera icon that allows you to include screenshots in your post. Seeing what you are seeing would help.

     

    Take a look at the importing pages on my site. That will address some of your questions. In the process it may fix some of the issues. Try that and then post back with whatever problems remain, hopefully none.

    Are you referring to these icons?

    If so, this is the standard RH topic icon.

    You can't change these icons.

    As Colum says, that is the standard topic icon and does not indicate anything. It is used by many authoring tools.

     

    I see I misread your original question on the importing aspect. You had started with reference to a Word document so your reference to Pages caught me out. Also I have been working with Word all morning so have some pity on me!

     

    Pages in an HTML file?

     

    You can force Word documents to come in breaking on whatever style you set to paginate. (Explained on my site) There is no equivalent option for HTML but the content should display. Is it a file you can send me offline? If so see the Contact page on my site. It's OK to attach the HTM file to an email.

    Gotcha (so far usability-wise this product could use some improvement..)

     

    What are you comparing with?

    I think once you get your mind around it, you will find it much easier than it might appear right now.

     

    Have you found this page? http://tv.adobe.com/show/learn-robohelp-9/

     

    Also there is a lot of information about specific areas on my site.
