Hello Mary -
We replace three files per generated project but it must be done manually.
I created the images/content that we need and gave them the corresponding RH file name. We keep these in a separate directory in the project. After generating the project I copy those three files into the generated target folder with Overwrite=Yes. All is well.
Do you name the file you copy in whstart.ico?
Hello Mary -
Sorry for the delay - I've been on vacation/holiday.
We replace three RH generated files with our own versions - same file format and same file names as the GENERATED files:
I created our versions of those files and created a folder (aaa-manual-replace) in the project (help) then dumped our files in the folder. After we generate the project we then copy those three files from aaa-manual-replace into the generated folder (!SSL!/help/) Replace/Overwrite=Yes.
Does anyone know if RoboHelp 7 or future versions will support an automatic (not manual) way to update the favicons universally? I don't want to have to manually overwrite these files everytime I republish my project.
I'm still on RoboHelp 5, so this gives me more incentive to upgrade. I tried overwriting the whstart.ico file in my RH 5 directory, but that didn't work.
I overwrote the whstart.ico files in the following directories with my new ico file:
C:\Program Files\RoboHelp Office\RoboHELP\WebHelp5Ext\template_skin
C:\Program Files\RoboHelp Office\RoboHTML\WebHelp5Ext\template_skin
I ran a search for that file name, and it appeared in both directories. Therefore, I replaced it in both places.
I then opened my RoboHelp project (.xpj file) and File > Generate Primary Layout (WebHelp) to re-publish my whole project. Then I opened a browser and deleted my history and temporary internet files before opening my project. The new favicon didn't appear; the default one is still there.
If you need more information or see where I might have gone wrong, please let me know. I'm grateful for the help!
