We are using RoboHelp 9 on a Windows 7 platform.
When we publish Webhelp, the topic icon in the published output has a question mark in it.
We have had almost universal feedback from our target audience that they are confused by the question mark (they thought it indicated an error occurred when we published the Webhelp). Is there a way to specify a different topic icon for the TOC in the properties of RoboHelp somewhere, but retain the "Default" skin?
We have two alternatives that we would prefer not to use:
1. Change the wht_toc3.gif file in the published output. (We publish often, so we want to avoid a post-publishing clean-up task.)
2. Go into the RoboHelp 9 application folder on the C drive where the GIF file resides and change it there.
We guess the folder is located here, although we found the file in a few different places:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 9\RoboHTML\WebHelp5Ext\template_skin
An icon that would be an acceptable replacement would be whd_toc3.gif (it has three horizontal lines in it instead of a question mark).
Is there any way to make this change in RoboHelp project or Webhelp properties anywhere?
Thanks in advance!
Yes, and Peter Grainge described it in another thread fairly recently. The poster in that thread wanted to use little pluses, but I don't remember what the method was (I do know that you do it within RH, not by messing around under the hood).
If I understood you correctly, then here is the answer. You can go to Project Setup Pod> Skins and double click on the Default Skin, In the right hand side top corner click on Navigation, Underneath that Topic/Page> change the image of the Topic and press ok.
Generate the webhelp.
Hope this helps.
