When you view the TOC of your WebHelp, you may notice a grey dotted border around items in your TOC. This dotted line breaks the look and feel of your custom layout. Here’s how to remove it!

Lists in RoboHelp

Ever since the release of RoboHelp 8 there has been a lot of discussion about lists. RoboHelp 8 changed the way lists work and that has confues many people: RoboHelp 8 uses XHTML instead of HTML 4.01 (as was used by RoboHelp 7 and earlier). This different HTML version forces browsers to render your help differently, thus breaking the lists. This article provides a review of lists in RoboHelp and shows how you can use lists in RoboHelp 8 and later.

 

Are you tired of using standard Windows fonts such as Arial or Verdana in your RoboHelp projects? You and me both. Why not try Google Fonts to jazz things up a bit?

 

Apart from regular patches, RoboHelp also regularly receives smaller updates and fixes, such as security fixes. These security fixes and small updates are not installed automatically and you need to see the announcements if you don’t want to miss them. And when you reinstall RoboHelp, it is always a pain to find all fixes on the various Adobe sites. This page lists all regular patches, security patches and other fixes for Adobe RoboHelp.

 

A recurring forum question is whether you can downgrade a RoboHelp project. You may need to do this when you accidentally upgraded a project when trying out a new version of RoboHelp. Or you may need to do this when you receive a project from another author or another company. Fortunately, it’s rather simple to downgrade a project to RoboHelp 8 (or a higher version).
