Customize the look and feel using AIR Help Skin Editor in RoboHelp 9

After we introduced the ability to develop Help based on Adobe AIR in RoboHelp 8, one of the things we heard again and again from our customers was the need to customize the look-and-feel of the generated AIRHelp system. And we now have AIR Help Skin Editor in RoboHelp 9!

Help systems must be consistent with design standards, and corporate branding themes. Customized branding with logos and color schemes is much more versatile with the new AIR Help Skin Editor. Adobe RoboHelp 9 now has an AIR Help Skin Editor that allows you to control the colors and icons used in AIR Help skins.

  1. I read your post but encountered the following error-

    defaults: Error: unable to open ‘C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 9\RoboHTML\AIRSDK\frameworks/localFonts.ser’

    Kindly help

  2. This skin editor has been a great start Ankur – I hope you still have further development plans for it because changing colours (while great), is only the first step in building a user-configurable template and skin editor. I’d love to be able to move elements around or remove ones that don’t apply to my needs.
