I'm new to RoboHelp 8 and creating my first project, a HTML help project that I plan to publish on the web.
My goal is to create one help project and allow users to print a PDF version.
I wanted to see what the PDF output looked like, but when I select File --> Generate, the PDF option is disabled / grayed out.
Any suggestions much appreciated! Thanks. SP
PS - what's the difference between HTLM help and Web Help project? when would I use one over the other?
Not sure why the PDF option is disabled (grayed out).
HTML Help will result in a single file to distribute. The file contains the TOC/Index/Glossary and all topics. It has a .CHM extension and only runs on Windows PCs. It is intended to be installed on everyone's C drive locally and has issues if you need to use it on a network.
WebHelp is a swarm of files to distribute. Usually you Publish WebHelp content to a web server and anyone with a browser can see it.
Hope this helps... Rick
