    Revised help not being picked up in build

    jdfranklin
      Greetings, all.

      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.

      Jerry

          Your output is not to a single htm file. You create many files that go into a folder containing the file to which you refer plus there will be subfolders.

          The page you are thinking about is the the one defined in the first field of the first page of the wizard. It is known as the start page.

          Your engineers need the all the files in that folder and any subfolders.

          You can generate and zip up that folder and give it to your engineers or you can follow an extra step and publish to a location they specifiy. The first is quicker and easier in most cases.
