I have done the following in robohelp 11 from Adobe Technical Communication Suite 5
1) select file|new|project
2) select import tab
3) Select the FrameMaker Documents option icon
This works quit well. I get a new RoboHelp project.
I would like to do the same via a RoboHelp extendScript but I can't get it to work.
Does anyone have some hints or good exampels to be inspired from?
It does depend on how fancy you want to make it. Creating a GUI with
file picker is quite a bit of work.
But if you only want a script to create a new project and import an FM
book, that's not too hard. For example:
RoboHelp.newProject('', 'MyProject', 'C:\temp\rh\scriptproject',
Run RH via command line with the script name as parameter: robohtml.exe
There is not much information on ExtendScript in RoboHelp. You can find
two introductory articles in the RoboHelp Developer Center to get you
If you want to do something more advanced, I have a free RH library for
extendscript to make working with scripts easier. It includes functions
as reading/writing files, setting context sensitivity, saving settings
and more. See
