I'm new to RH, and have had to come up to speed very quickly
on RH7 to revise online help files created in RH5.
I've revised and reformatted the files, and they compile
flawlessly on my laptop, but the revised Help is not being picked
up in the build. While this may be an issue with the build system,
I realized I need some urgent remedial RoboHelp knowledge in case
the engineers need some more information from me.
In particular, I know very, very little about the files RH
uses to compile, their locations, and the files and locations
required to be picked up in a build. I'm about to go through RH's
own online documentation, but thought posting here might get me
more, better, faster information.
For instance, it doesn't matter where the RoboHelp Project
file is, correct? It just matters where the source files are (htm,
jpg, etc.) and where the final compiled help is, yes?
FYI, my output is WebHelp, into an .htm file. Is that htm
file the only tile the engineers need?
Thanks very much for any assistance you could provide.
1/ You create your RH project content at a certain location.
2/ You compile your project that - by default - builds a set
of files in a subfolder called SSL/Webhelp within your project
directory. However it is advisable to change this to go to a
different directory outside of your project. You can find the
location out by right clicking on your Webhelp single source layout
and selecting Properties. There you will find the Output Path.
3/ When you compile, you are given the option to "generate"
the output to a different location. This is the step that
effectively copies the output files to the location where they are
to be published.
So, if your build is not showing the correct output I'd check
that the generate step is generating to the correct location. I'd
also check that your "build process" is accessing the correct
