How is the printed output differing from your online help?
What option do you select in the last page of the wizard? (Use CSS or Use a Word template). If the latter, what template?
Thanks for your response.
The printed output will likely contain the same content as the online Help - though I'll need to add a few book-only elements, such as copyright information. I will also need to 'hide' all DHTML (I don't want expanding text to appear in the printed manual), and will need to hide most snippets, which I use in just about every topic - something that will be an annoyance, visually and with flow, to a user reading the printed output. I assume I can do this through conditional text.
As for the template, I have not decided which option to use. What do you recommend, and which, generally speaking will work best? If I point to a Word template, will I have to match the style names in that template to the style names in my Help template?
For the topics that you only want in the printed version, I suggest you create a tag such as Print Only and exclude those topics when you generate the online help.
For the dropdowns, the Advanced button has an option to exclude them.
For the rest, see the topic on my site about Printed Documentation.
Thanks Peter. I was not aware of the option(s) regarding dHTML elements in output to printed doc. Those will prove helpful.
I will review the info on your site as well.
