    Put all text of pages into one file ?

    Krischu Level 1

      With a Robohelp  MS HTML Help project, would it be possible to dump all text contents into one big file?

          Hi there

           

          One big Microsoft Word document?

          One single distributable file such as a CHM?

          A singe Zip file?

          An Adobe PDF document?

          One huge HTML file?

           

          Are you even using RoboHelp?

           

          Cheers... Rick

            If you’re talking about creating CHMs, it’s already in one file; or are you talking about concatenating all the HTML pages into one long file (page?)

              Rick. One Big Word Document would be desirable. I would like to apply a spelling checker for example. Or do some other text review.

               

              Jeff, if it's in the CHM (sure, it's gotta be   ), how could one extract it?

                Hello again

                 

                One may use the Printed Documentation feature of Adobe RoboHelp. Just open the Outputs(SSL) pod (RoboHelp 2015 Release) or the Single Source Layouts pod and double-click the Printed Documentation layout.

                 

                Work through the wizard and you should end up with a single document once finished.

                 

                Cheers... Rick

                  Rick,

                   

                  the Printed Documentation feature is probably what I want. I tried it but I run into trouble with some VBA script stuff:

                  This appears in the output window. Also an alert box pops up from MS Word (2007) saying sth. about that VBA Macro.

                  Generierung der gedruckten Dokumentation wurde abgebrochen.

                   

                   

                  Die registrierte Version des Word-VBA-Makros ist falsch.

                  Installieren Sie 'Gedruckte Dokumentation' noch einmal.

                  Wartezeit, bis VBA-Makros für gedruckte Dokumentation registriert wurden...

                    Sorry but I'm nearly out the door for an appointment. Hopefully Peter or Jeff can pop in to advise.

                      What version of RoboHelp are you using?

                        I started a trial period with RH 2015 a couple of days ago but to stay compatible with our partner I also installed RH11 as a trial version. The former I will be going to license soon anyway (which will also entitle me to continue using RH 11 as I've learnt).

                         

                        I got around this VBA thing by now by enabling Macro (insecurity) in Word 2007 and I'm tried start a PDF printed doc which seems to work now, but still got not through it. Gotto close my notebook yesterday night when I had to leave office while RH was still at 80%

                        of generating the printed doc. Takes long.

                         

                        Well, I'd prefer to get it solved for Word 2007 nonetheless because it would be easier to do text correction.

                         

                        RH doesn't provide a spelling checker built in, does it?

                          Meanwhile I managed to generate a printed documentation as a Word document. It's huge (1300 pages as was the PDF document).

                          I can also save the file as a .TXT document. THat's what I needed.

                           

                          Thanks. Solved.

                            Hello again

                             

                            Indeed, RoboHelp does have a spelling checker built into it!

                             

                            In RoboHelp (2015 Release) you launch the Spell Check by either pressing the F7 key (same key is used in Microsoft Products as well as in Adobe Captivate for spell check) or you click the Review tab followed by Spell Check.
