RoboHelp 7 - love the generate PDF and send for review
feature - is there any way to just generate a PDF for a single
topic and send that single topic for review? We have a project with
literally hundreds and hundreds of topics - and only want to have
SMEs review their own single or few topics.
I thought of creating a specific Review Topics project and
putting them in there, but again, we have quite a few individual
reviewers who only care about their own single or few topics - and
we really don't want to have to create individual projects for all
Any suggestions? Or, is it a simple setting I cannot find and
that isn't in the Help anywhere (or did I just miss it)?
Looks like you are using Technical Communication Suite (Send
for Review feature is Suite specific - RoboHelp uses Acrobat 3D to
enable PDFs for commenting with Adobe Reader). Send for Review uses
the default SSL - Printed Documentation and sends the PDF for
review. You can modify the Chapter layout of this SSL to select the
topics to include in the PDF.
Since you have the Technical Communication Suite, you can
also set up this workflow manually. Use multiple SSLs - one for
each reviewer. Create a different Chapter Layouts in your printed
documentation SSL for each reviewer. Your Chapter layout may
contain one or more topics. Publish your PDF using different SSLs.
Launch Acrobat 3D (included with Suite), open the PDFs,
Select menu Advanced -> Enable usage rights in Adobe Reader. Now
PDF can be commented by Adobe Reader.
Go to Menu - Comments -> Attach for E-mail Review.
RoboHelp (TCS version) automatically does the above steps for
you from RoboHelp File menu for the default Printed Documentation
