- You don't need anything else.
- RoboHelp server is for hosting output only. There is no need to use it. I'm, however, not clear on how your server and local files are set up and work together. Normally, you work on a local version of the project. You store backups on the server.
- In RoboHelp, open the Single Source Layouts pod. (View > Pods > Single Source Layouts). Find the output type you want to use (try WebHelp for starters) and double click it. Then click Save and Generate. This creates an output. You take this output and publish it on the Intranet site. If your VM server is also meant to host the help as a web server, you can link your intranet. But whether you should, depends on what you are trying to achieve.
- That's a hard question to answer. I don't see any gaping at this point, but as I don't know what you are doing and how it is set up, I'm not sure I can provide any meaningful answer.
Have you considered following a RH training course or get an introduction course book? That will go over all the basics and will answer most of your questions. There are several books and online courses available if you are interested. Some well known ones are the Rick's Gooberguides and IconLogic's course books.
Thank you for your response! Your answers have helped me a lot. I will consider your recommendations as well!
Thank you, Rick! I will look into this one.
