Hi Susy and welcome to the RH community.
The key to this problem is the second step - Create new webhelp skin. If you are using FlashHelp as your output you will only be able to select a flashhelp skin. You will have to use the "Import Skin from Gallery" option that allows you to import a flashhelp skin that you can amend. Make sure you have FlashHelp set as your default single source layout or else you end up with the same issue.
OK - thanks :)
But what should I use if I would like to have a customized skin? Can I customize a flashhelp skin, where can I find "Import skin from Gallery"?
I must have gone blind, can not find anything by now...
Yes you can customise a FlashHelp skin in the same way as you can a webhelp skin. In your second step, select the first option "Create Skin from Gallery" instead of "Create Custom Webhelp Skin" and you'll be taken to the next step of the wizzard where existing flashelp skins are displayed.
You may also want to search the web for existing flash help skins that you could import.
Thank you for your patience :)
But there is just no way I can customize a skin, all I can do is give the FlashHelp skin a new name... So now I have a new skin that looks exactly like the one I created it from...
Am I missing something in RoboHelp?
Sorry Suzy. I am a flashhelp novice having never used it. I seem to have misled you. You can't edit flashhelp skins from within RH but if you can edit it outside. Click here for an article on how to do this. Bear in mind that you do have to have some XML knowledge.
Ok - thanks :) I'll see who I can ask for help "in house" to make adjustments. Greetings from Oslo, Norway!
