Course Description

In this course you will learn how to effectively create, modify, generate and distribute a complete and functional information delivery system; containing Images, working Hyperlinks, a Table of Contents, an Index and a Glossary.

While this course demonstrates using Adobe RoboHelp HTML version 11, the student should be equally successful using earlier versions, such as 7, 8, 9 or 10.

Different assets such as projects, an image and a text file are provided to help facilitate the process.

There are over three hours of instructional video included that guide you from the ground up. From nothing but an idea to a polished output that you can actually use once finished.

What are the requirements?

  • A fairly recent version of RoboHelp HTML should be installed. A trial version should work just fine.
  • A basic understanding of the Microsoft Windows operating system and how to navigate the Windows File system.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Create, generate, distribute and maintain a RoboHelp HTML project.

What is the target audience?

  • This course is meant for someone new to using Adobe RoboHelp HTML or someone that has been away from RoboHelp for a while and may need a refresher.
