I need to create tool tips or sometimes referred to as screen
tips in RoboHelp 7 generating HTML Help. I have no idea on how to
go about this. The developer asked me to "add" this for this
release. What do I need to do or create. What does he need to know
or give me, etc.....I get the feeling that he has not done this
before as well. So before I have a meeting with him I want to know
the big picture and necessary details on what will happpen? A
search of the internet did not produce good results. Any
suggestions? Links to articles?
1. Double click the topic.
2. The Design panel will open.
3. Right-click on an existing image/hyperlink/multi-media
item, or select one of the "insert" options.
4. Type in the appropriate "Screen tip" in the available box.
It sounds like the developer is wanting to make the help ADA
(Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant. If this is the case,
and you also use the PDF options in RoboHelp, be sure to enable
tagging if prompted to disable tagging due to file size. When
tagging is disabled during the creation of a PDF, it's absolutely
horrible to try to "read" the finished product on a screen reader.
