Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring the workspace, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
Let's get acquainted now with the RoboHelp 9 HTML workspace, which many people…like to call the user interface.…To do that, we'll first need to launch the program.…So if you haven't already, go down to your Start button, click there, and…select All Programs.…From there you'll find a folder titled Adobe RoboHelp 9, and when you click that…you will see the RoboHelp 9 HTML program.…Give that a click to launch the program.…Now, the very first thing you're going to see is something called the Starter--…notice the Starter tab in the top left-hand corner--and it's from here where you…can select recent projects that you've been working on to get back to them…quickly or open older ones by clicking Open.…
You can create new projects, different types of projects, from the Create New…column, and you can even import from the Import section, and here you can see…a couple of defaults:…Word documents and Microsoft HTML Help Projects, but you can select more as well.…There's also a number of resources available to you here for working with…

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.
