Hi John. You must have a copy of RH to see the CBTs. You could run the report and hand that to them, but that won't provide them with the detail of where the tags have been applied. Just that they have been applied.
Disappointing that it can't be done. Certainly not worth the expense of another copy for reviewing.
Surely if they want to review to that level of detail, they should be expecting to pay. That isn't so much reviewing as authoring. Just saying
RoboHelp 9 has a Review function built into it. You could use this function to create one or two PDF documents you would supply.
Not sure if that would help you out.
From what you have posted, are you saying that you have only applied tags to entire topics? Or are the tags also applied to content within topics?
I've got some ideas brewing, but before trying to suggest something, I'd like to know what the answer to that question is.
I saw the Review was considering using create pdfs and add comments to the pdf within topics to show what goes with what.
I have both, applied tags to entire topics and applied to content within topics.
Thanks for trying to help out.
Okay, some thoughts...
For tags applied to entire topics, you could create a frameset that would allow two topics to be displayed simultaneously. Either side by side or top/bottom. That might allow for easy comparison.
And I was thinking that for content, you might color code the text. But that would likely be a bit labor intensive. My thought was that you could create and apply some styles that would cause the color coding to occur. Only define them in a single style sheet that would only be applied for generating the "review" CHM file. Then you would use the desired original style sheet when generating the final output.
Great ideas. You've given me some options that I will try out.
Thank you for your help.
