I believe the RoboHelp HTML equivalent of this is to use Comments.
Unfortunately RoboHelp HTML will show you comments if they exist but will not assist you in creating them. You will have to change the view to the raw HTML view and insert them manually.
Please see the link below for some basic information about HTML comments. To configure RoboHelp HTML to actually show you the comments, click View > Show and ensure a check mark appears next to Comments.

um, why not use Build Tags? You can still see the text, but just make sure your Exclude Statement excludes the text from your output. I have OODLES of content in my Help systems that I have marked with an Admin Build Tag, never to be seen by anyone but me.
Am I misunderstanding the issue?
I have only briefly used trial versions of the newer RoboHelp versions so I am not well-versed in how to do this, nor do I recall if it works in X5...
I think you need to use a conditional build. At first, this could only apply to topics (was that X5?) and then text could be tagged for conditional builds. Hopefully, someone (Rick?) more knowlegable about version differences can chime in here.
If you'll be conditionalizing stuff to keep it hidden, be aware that the "hatching" RH uses to identify such content can render it illegible, so you'd probably need to zoom the WYSIWYG window to actually read any of it.
I use this feature for each of my partial screenshot images in installation processes for client and server, where I place a line under each, containing the image file name and its size values (e.g., client_login.gif 190 X 220). When version numbers change throughout an installation process, I follow that information as I capture the replacements. (With SnagIt, I can zero in on the exact values by using the down, left, and right keyboard arrow buttons while "holding" the bounding box that I've "drawn.") This also prevents me from forgetting to select "Reset Size" with any differences that RH won't recognize on its own.
I think I'll try the conditional build tags route - thanks much!
