    "Classic" UI for Robohelp 2015?

    Rsfl Level 1

      I updated to Robohelp 2015 and am rather appalled by the new ribbon UI. I remember reading about the possibility to use a "classic" UI in RH2015, does anybody know more about that? I noticed that in the workplaces section (top right corner) there is a preconfigured workplace called "Classic" which rearranges the pods (actually to the better) but it does not bring back the old menu structure.

          The option to revert to the old menus was not implemented. The ribbon takes

          a little while to find your way around but most people have found that with

          that out of the way, it is OK.

           

          My own preference is for the General workspace but each to their own.

            Thanks, I had hoped that there might be a feature (or user-made modification, who knows) to get the previous UI back. I'll just have to get used to the changes then. Alone forcing Robohelp to display the project manager and the TOC at the same time was quite a struggle.

              Hi there

               

              I think what you are talking about is the "Classic Workspace". Try clicking Workspace at the top right corner of RoboHelp and see if you get a drop-down listing Classic. Choose that and see if you like it better. That's my first step in making RoboHelp (2015 Release) friendlier and more familiar.

               

              Cheers... Rick
