Good morning community.
My quandary today looks to outputing topics to word (dotx). Simple enough: run through the printed process until you select the option to use styles from the stylesheet (as opposed to using word). Select the applicable stylesheet, and viola! The output is a nicely presented word document...
...well okay, not that nice.
The style sheet method works just fine for outputting styles, however, you cannot define the word document margins (using CSS). Additionally, I'd like to include a header and footer. Of some curiosity, I cannot find the template the Robohelp uses to output to a word document.
The other option is that Robohelp can output to a selected word template instead. I've gone to Peter Grainge's website (http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/printing/rh9_printing.htm), but the use of a template appears to strip out the header and footer and inserts a header and page number field.
Basically I need more control of my word output.
I trust this is enough information
Any comment appreciated.
When you create any document in Word, you can always check what template has been used. When you apply a CSS to printed documentation, RoboHelp uses Normal.
In the article on my site, it does state that you cannot stop RoboHelp applying its own headers and footers. I have had several people tell me they will find out how to do it. I'm still waiting.
After the import, you can of course do what you want with the document but that's a different workflow.
