Hi. I haven't used Robohelp since about 1995, so I'm way
behind. I know FrameMaker *very* well, so it's not like I'm a total
nOOb with Adobe products. But when I look at the Robohelp Web Help
in TCS, it boggles my mind. (I want to use FrameMaker files as the
source for Web Help).
At a high level I understand what's happening. I understand
about style mappings and all that. But I cannot make any connection
between that high level understanding and what I see in Robohelp!
What I really need is a tutorial(s) that will help me learn about
things like WORKFLOW and how to do specific things like:
- Add or remove a topic.
- Fix up mappings AFTER I've imported the FrameMaker book
- Optimize graphics (some of my graphics that use FrameMaker
drawing tools for callouts get blown apart after importing them.
Also, JPG quality is really bad.)
- Re-jig it so H2 and H3 create "topics" and not just H1.
I realize these forums are for discussion of more focused
problems, so I'm not hoping to have you all coach me through this
learning process. But if anyone here knows of a good tutorial or
book that would help me get going, please point me to it/them!
Note that I've tried a couple of the "video" tutorials on the
Adobe web site, and they were more annoying than helpful. Also, I
find the "help" within Help to be excessively wordy and not very
useful (this is an across the board problem with Adobe I think).
Any third-party resources out there?
