The answer is a definite yes and no.
If you are using RoboHelp combined with RoboHelp Server, you are able to specify a window and its attributes. But if you are using regular RoboHelp with basic WebHelp or FlashHelp output, you are limited to what the browser offers.
Are you saying that we cannot fix the window position when the online help system is launched? I am using RoboHelp 7 with WebHelp as my primary layout. The browser launches in the exact position where a previous opened browser window existed. I seem to have no control over how or where the online help system launches.
I would like to be able to define a size and location. Is that possible without using RoboHelp Pro?
You can put the overall pane in any place and any size you want from the launching page/application link. For example, suppose you had a link from a web page that you are launching your help defined as: <a href="./help/index.htm" target="helpwin" onclick="window.open('./help/index.html','helpwin','height=300,width=600,toolbar=no,direc tories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no'); return false;">Launch Product Help</a>
You get the idea. As for setting the divider btw the navigation and content, that I don't know. I'm pretty new to Robohelp, but when I get to customizing the look and feel, I'll update this if I find out.
It works perfectly! Thanks for a useful tip, Katie!

If you pop over to my web site at ( This link right here ) you may download a copy of my Skinny on Skins file. This file documents many different ways to tweak WebHelp output to do different things.
I believe configuring the width of the navigation frame split is one of the things that have been documented.
Thanks Captiv8r! I could change the size of the TOC navigation pane using your Skinny on Skins. Highly recommended! :)
Captiv8r, Congratulations! Realy good work
