    RoboHelp Glossary, Index, and TOC Features

    Mindy_ISD Level 1

      I looked at some online training that had a really nice glossary feature.  I'm trying to figure out if Robohelp is what I need to accomplish something like this since it claims to have such great glossary, Index, and TOC features.  However,  I can't find a demo developed in Robohelp showing what these features are capable of.  Does anyone know of any demonstrations that I could view to see if this is what I'm looking for before I purchase?

          Hi, Melbert2000

          It's not clear whether you already use RoboHelp or have installed the trial version as part of your evaluation. Assuming you have, each release of RoboHelp comes with sample projects to help explore features. For example, Adobe RoboHelp 8 comes with a project called Web Graphics.

           

          One quick way to see the TOC/Index/Glossary in action would be on my site, called Clownfish School.

          http://www.showmethedemo.com/clownfish_school/

           

          You will notice the Glossary is visible in two ways. First, as a Glossary button which shows in the Navigation pane. Second is in the form or expanding hotspots within topic text. You can see some examples if you go to the topic "News from Thailand and Greece" Click on the maroon color words "Anemonefish" and "Clownfish" and you will see how the Glossary hotspots show or hide as you click on them.

           

          As part of your purchase evaluation, I would recommend you download the Adobe RoboHelp Reviewer's Guide here to get a better idea of the various features:

          https://acrobat.com/#d=5bE00menRN24n8TzSel0Iw

           

          And the Web Graphics Sample project can be downloaded here:

          Hope this helps.

            No, I actually don't have anything yet.  I considered downloading the trial version, but I didn't want to spend the time to learn the software if it didn't have what I needed. 

             

             

             

            I see from your site that it is what I'm looking, and thank you so much for sending me that link.  Now I know, buying RoboHelp and learning it won't be a waste of time and money.

              Do you recommend any training books for RoboHelp?

                I would recommend a three day training course offered by any of the certified RoboHelp instructors

                such as Rick Stone or myself

                 

                The training comes with courseware and manuals.

                Thanks

                  Unfortunately, a three day training course isn't ideal for my work schedule right now.  Are the manuals available for purchase outside of taking the course?

                    Can you give me some more information on the three day training course?

                     

                     

                     

                    How much?  Is it instructor-led where travel would be involved?

                      Hi. Rather than clutter up the forum, I'd appreciate it if you would email me offline at the email address in my forum profile, I'll send you complete details which are representative of all instructors, not just myself.

                      Thanks
