    Editing traditional (no skin) in WebHelp

    MAMontreal
      Is there a easy way to edit the look of the traditional skin in WebHelp using the Skin Editor? To upload different colored graphics, etc? Thanks for the advice.

          In the Project tab, Skins folder, double click the Default skin. In the resulting WebHelp Skin Editor window, have at it.


          Good luck,

            Hi MAMontreal

            I think Leon is probably thinking of the WebHelp Default skin.

            If you select "Traditional style - no skin", you are selecting an older style of WebHelp. One that does not use skins. The Skins Editor is very aptly named. It edits skins! As you are selecting an output type that doesn't use skins, you cannot therefore expect to use a skins editor to make changes to something it doesn't understand.

            This doesn't mean you can't change the look of this style of WebHelp. It simply means you will have to work a bit to accomplish it. All the graphical elements exist as images. So you need to simply hunt up the components and change them as desired.

            Hopefully this helps a bit... Rick
