Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video All about pods, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
A very important part of your workspace is what you see scattered about the…screen, and these little panes, or panels, are actually called pods, and we're…going to focus on them, getting more familiar with them, right now.…Let's start by creating a new project that we can continue to work with as we…move through the various lessons in this title.…Click File, move down to New, and from the submenu, select Project.…Here you will see a list of new project types.…When you select them, you'll see a description off to the right-hand side.…Each has its own template to help you get started, but we're going to go back…to Blank Project, click OK, and we're going to start to create a help system…that will help people learn how to use lynda.com, so that might be an…appropriate title that we can type in right at the top over the selected text,…"How to Use lynda.com."…You can choose a location like the Desktop, like I have, and the First Topic,…instead of the words First Topic, let's click and drag over them and type in…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
