    help with IDL and TLB file

    sagarsid
      Hi All,

      I am working on a project which requires CHTML and Webhelp outputs, and i have recommended Robohelp for the project.

      Most of their content is in Document X (Innovasys product), like a readymade structure and we can fill in the content. I have tried importing these .IDL and .tlb files in Robohelp but no luck.

      There are just 2-3 chapters which are structured like this, and Document X output is a compiled HTML file.

      Is there a way i can integrate all this in Robohelp??


      Thanks

          Firstly, I'm guessing here that CHTML means "Compiled HTML"? As in a .CHM file?

          I'm not surprised in the least that RoboHelp doesn't seem to have a clue what a .IDL or .tlb file is. I'm just guessing that these are proprietary to DocumentX?

          I'd say the easiest way to "integrate" this into RoboHelp (Assuming I'm correctly understanding that DocumentX creates compiled .CHM files) would be to decompile the .CHM that DocumentX created, then bringing the decompiled files into RoboHelp.

          Cheers... Rick

            Hi Rick,

            Thanks for your reply, I have decided to convert all the existing files to pdf or word documents and then import them. I will probably copy the 3 chapters in DOC X to word.Just trying to be on safer side.
