Hi MaryellenBuff and welcome to our community
Are you using the built in RoboScreenCapture utility? What version of RoboHelp do you have?
If you are using an older version of RoboHelp, you may need to consider a screen capture utility such as TechSmith's SnagIt. But if you are on a recent version of RoboHelp, RoboScreenCapture is included at no extra charge and you may find it to be perfectly serviceable.
Rick - thanks from Colorado University Buffalo country for responding! I am so frustrated with this and really need some advice.
I am on version 7 and have been trying to use the RoboScreenCapture. I have been able to use the screen capture to draw my images and import them into my topics in RoboHelp. What I have not been able to do is to overlay one image on top of another.
Any additional advice? - thanks Maryellen
Hi again Maryellen
Normally the workflow is this.
* Start RoboScreenCapture
* Capture a screen
* Add emphasis by using one of the tools in the panel to the left
Are you attempting to use bits of one image along with the main part? If so, this is where I tend to feel SnagIt excels. By allowing you to add arrows and callouts and such.
Might help to know exactly what you are trying to do with your images.
Rick - thank you so much! I've now got it working. What I wasn't doing correctly that was causing me the problem was capturing the screen image I wanted to modify from my documents and putting it into the ScreenCapture blank page. When I did that, I was able to modify the image with the overlaying graphics I wanted to add to the image and import it into RoboHelp. So now I'm able to move forward with my project. Again, thank you!
