Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding workflow, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
Well, now that you have the basics of RoboHelp 9 under your belts, it's time to…focus in on creating actual projects.…So first, we are going to discuss the basic workflow a RoboHelp 9 project.…And step one is actually creating a project. Every help system has at least one…project as part of it, and the basic element of the project is the topic, and this…is where authoring the content comes in.…You create topics. You can add multimedia now in RoboHelp 9, or later when you…customize the output you can add it then.…
You can work with the application developer to start planning which topics to…also use for something called context-sensitive help.…Context-sensitive help topics appear when the user clicks a Help button in the…user interface or presses F1.…Step 3 is to import files if necessary.…You can import HTML files, Microsoft Word documents,…you can also bring in FrameMaker books if you're accustomed to using FrameMaker.…You can bring in XML files and even Adobe PDF files.…We are going to do some of this later on in this course.…

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.
