    RoboHelp Skin Change

    Indrani Chatterjee

      I am new to RoboHelp. I have lost the lefthand-side corner column from where skin changes can be done. Please help if you know.

          Perhaps I could ask you to take a look at the Before You Post topic where it is asked that you start all posts with the version of RoboHelp that you are using.

           

          I'll assume you are on RoboHelp 8 and suggest you try View > Pods > Project Setup.

           

          Otherwise I am not sure what it is you are not seeing.

            I'm guessing here - when you say the lower left corner - do you mean the "Single Source Layouts" box? I know I did that when new...

             

            If so, click View > Pods > Single Source Layouts.

             

            That gives you the WebHelp (Primary Layout) where you double-click you can select the Skin to apply on the first tab. But, as said above, best to provide as much info as possible!

              I am presently using Robohelp Version 8.

               

              My  entire setup has been messed. Any of the items such as Project Manager,  Single Source Layout, Project Set up, The Main Page where to write, are  not appearing. They seem to have been closed down by some mistaken  step. Thus, when I am opening a Robohelp document, the page appears  blank.

               

              How do I get the original page setup, where there  will be Project Manager at the left hand side, Topic Names in the Middle  and Design and HTML Page (Where I can write) in the right side? There is  nobody in my office who knows Robohelp. So I need help badly.

               

              I  have installed Robohelp Version 8 and it is not a free version.The  previous documents are also appearing blank. I am really helpless....

                  This sounds like you have closed the pods. You can either go to View > Pods and open just the ones you want or you can go to the menu and select File > Environments and load the default environment.
