Welcome to our community, Chris
I don't believe RoboHelp will expose any way to do that.
What comes to mind as a fairly simple solution would be to create an additional (and temporary) book in your TOC. Add any topics with the "Ready for review" status to the book. That way your reviewers would have rapid access in a single location and you wouldn't have to disturb the existing TOC Hierarchy.
Or...you could create some new templates, each having their own Status label in the header or footer. You'd then reassign templates as the topic status evolved.
As an aside, renaming Status labels is available in RH8.
Welcome to the community,
The functionality you are asking is not provided by RoboHelp 7. But RoboHelp 8 provides a very good support for writing user specific scripts. The specific need can be easily be fulfilled using the Scripting support in RoboHelp8. I have written a sample script file which does the work whatever was specified by you here. I am attaching the code for the script file along with this reply. If You dont have RH8, I really recommend you to download the trial version of RH8 and try out the new scripting feature provided with RH8. User can do many more things with scripting.
You just need to download the file provided in the link and go to the scripting pod in RH8 and import that jsx file in pod, right click on the imported script file and say Run script and this will do all the work what you said.
Again as you asked you can use this script to update the topic and generate the output and publish to the server in one go.( I have not added the generation code for the time being, but it is easy enough to do that as well).
You can modify this script as per your need and requirement. Do let me know of issues if any with script usage?
Sample Script File
How would you clear the text this adds to topics when you are ready to publish?
Wow! I posted this yesterday evening when Praful was (should have been) tucked up in bed. I wake up this morning and find another script posted in response to my question.
Thank you very much.
Hoping Praful has subscribed to this topic so this reply ends up as an E-Mail message.
Hopefully you can assist someone in the Frame section with a scripting issue. Link to the post is below:
