    RoboHelp and HTML


      I'm new to RoboHelp and am looking into purchasing. However, before I do, I have a few questions I would like to clear up first.

      If I create an HTML file, can I import it into RoboHelp (i.e. I'm trying to create a template in RoboHelp starting from HTML. By the way, does RoboHelp have the concept of a template (as in MS Word)?

      Thank in advance for the help!

          Welcome to the forums.

          Yes, you can import HTML files, and yes, RoboHelp has templates. Importing an HTML file to use as a template requires an extra step because RH's templates have a file extension of .htt. With your HTML file open in an editor like Notepad, you can do a "Save As" and save a copy with a .htt file extension, and then import it into RH's Templates folder in the Project Manager.

          Good luck,

            Thanks for the reply Ben.

            One more question, is creating a template in RoboHelp easy?

              Creating a template is very easy, I think--you go through a short dialog to set up a title and file name and specify a style sheet. You can change those attributes later if you want.

              RH has a WYSIWYG editor as well as a code editor, so you do the rest there to make the template look the way you want.
