Hi cliff310 and welcome to the RH community. If your manager does not have a RH licence then it is going to be difficult. The problem is that with webhelp the source project files are totally different from the published files. The published files include lots ot generated files for additional data (e.g. index, TOC, search terms, etc.). They are a collection of files all of which are required for the end user to get the help. Why not just publish and then zip the files before sending them to your manager.
Hi cliff310 and welcome to our community
Tough call with WebHelp. After all, the others need access to ALL the files in the output folder.
One thing you could do is to create Microsoft HTML Help output. This will result in a compiled .CHM file. You could then ship the .CHM as an attachment or stick it on a network drive for them to copy to their hard drive and review.
Or, you could just publish WebHelp to a network drive and give them a link pointing to the start page. In my opinion, that would be the best approach and is how I would do it if I were in your shoes.
No problem Rick. You gave the added value of an alternative solution.
Thank you for the info, it worked.
Hello cliff310 -
I provide our Help project to our customer and any company person who wishes on a regular basis. After a couple days of work I generate the entire project on my local drive the zip up the entire generated folder (the one that would get published), then in put the zipped file on our corporate document server for anyone to copy. I also include a readme file on the server with the simple instructions on how to use the Help.
For example, the generated output goes to the project folder, !SSL! sub-folder, help sub-folder (the name of the generated project) with a launch file named index. Anyone can download the zip, unzipp to the desktop and launch index.htm - there it is!
