I have a customer who wishes to print out our entire help
system. We don't currently offer a printable version as such so I
am trying to decide whether it is best to tell her to use the
standard Print option from the chm or whether I should use the
Printed Doc feature of RoboHELP to create another version for her.
The problem with the standard Print option from the chm, is
that drop down text isn't included and I have used a lot of that.
Is there a way of opening it all before printing? And will this
still be a problem if I create a Printed Doc version?
Hopefully this will help you make up your mind. When you
generate your printed documentation, click on the Advanced button
in the first dialog. This has options to include both expanding and
dropdown text in the output.
And if I may add my own 2 cents here (adjusted for inflation,
You will have a much greater control over what they end up
with if you supply a .PDF of the information that is intended for
them to print. Using the print function of the .CHM viewer is
dreadful and a cause of many a forum post asking why people don't
get the result they want.
(If you give me a penny for my thoughts, and I give you my 2
cents worth, what happens to the other penny? - TAXES!!!!!)
