I am new to RoboHelp HTML. My manager has asked me to use the
printed documentation feature in RoboHelp. Within this doc file, my
manager is making edits to the content. Since I already have a
project in RoboHelp, what should I be doing to make the edits for
each topic? My manager is using track changes in the .doc file. I
am manually going through those changes and copying/pasting the
text into RoboHelp.
Should I be using RoboHelp for Word instead? It seems that
RoboHelp HTML is easier to use. Maybe I should have had my boss
write up all the content and finalize it before I created the
RoboHelp HTML project? Any suggestions?
I certainly wouldn't advocate using RH for Word. The answer
will depend on the level of changes. If what you are doing is no
real hardship, then that's what I and a lot of others do in that
situation. Other options include the use of Dreamweaver 8 and
Dreamweaver 8 does a nice job of creating clean code from a
Word document except it writes the tables in its usual sqeaky clean
manner whereas RH has its own approach.
If the edits are extensive, then see the topic on my site
about Reviewing. Using Contribute though is excessive with
relatively small scale changes.
