RoboHelpTechnical Communication

Dear RoboHelp Users,

Adobe RoboHelp Service Release 9.0.1 is available now. The RoboHelp 9.0.1 update addresses the following issues:

  1. RoboHelp does not recognize 64-bit Word installation in 64-bit mode
  2. Printed Documentation output doesn’t honor a CBT applied on multilevel lists if another Word Template list style overrides it
  3. CBT gets applied randomly in topic content on switching between the HTML view and the Design view in certain scenarios
  4. CBT gets removed from UDV on inserting another UDV in the same paragraph
  5. Language and encoding options are saved only for WebHelp and AIR output
  6. While using Dynamic User-Centric Content  (DUCC) output, the Use Lowercase File Names setting isn’t honored due to difference in the capitalization of ContentList.xml in whtbar.js
  7. RoboHelp crashes on generating output if the project has PDF baggage files with invalid font information
  8. RoboHelp crashes on accessing the TOC or Index pod after loading a workspace
  9. Non-UTF-8 and high ASCII characters get corrupted in the WebHelp output for topics created or edited outside RoboHelp
  10. ePub output does not show the TOC if the RoboHelp project name has spaces
  11. Duplicate content appears in the ePub output in case of certain TOC references
  12. Duplicate index and glossary entries are shown in AIR Help output for merged projects
  13. TOC of child project doesn’t appear in the merged browser-based AIR Help output
  14. Some of the list items are not temporarily shown in the Design editor on deleting any line that is not part of the paragraph list
  15. List gets duplicated in the source topic on accessing an invalid bookmark link to the same topic during preview
  16. Some of the links for resources aren’t properly maintained after importing comments from PDF in the review workflow
  17. Search doesn’t find PDF baggage files in output generated through command-line compilation
  18. Search highlighting issues in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and AIR Help if the topic content has hard line break
  19. A span tag is introduced in the HTML view of topic content (with style and CBT applied) when you switch from the Design view
  20. Style mapping of FrameMaker content containing certain special characters in xrefs not honored in RoboHelp
  21. Server settings in the Publish pane of the WebHelp SSL dialog box are cleared when you make changes to other pane and don’t view the server settings after that

RoboHelp 9.0.1 update is available through Adobe Update Manager (AUM). You can check for updates through Help>Update menu in RoboHelp 9. This update is also available for download from RoboHelp Support Center. I encourage all the RoboHelp 9 users to install this update.

After installing the update, please copy the updated ‘ePub Generator.jsx’ script from [InstallDir]/RoboHTML/presets/scripts/ to the following location:
On Windows XP: [USER]/Application Data/Adobe/RoboHTML/9.00/Scripts/Sample Scripts/
On Windows 7: [USER]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/RoboHTML/9.00/Scripts/Sample Scripts/

    We have installed version 9.0.1 or 9.0.2. Robohelp does not direct way adapted towards the topic, in an application. There is a point where it bursts, when I do a consultation in the link of the application (e.g. Directory) does not open any window and nothing appears. We have this problem, only with firefox. Who should I contact, for the review of this problem in my company?

    Thank you for your kind attention.

    Andrey Gomez.

    I’m using Robohelp 9, there are few technical problems I’m facing as such:
    1. Unable to delete permanently broken links from the folder of broken links.
    2. Index showing the current file and broken file both.
    3. Updations of contents are showing in a file when search is performed else when looked in Index the updation is not showing.
    Kindly guide me how to solve the issue. And one more thing project is too heavy consisting 100 files.

    Note: To access the folder

    [USER]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/RoboHTML/9.00/Scripts/Sample Scripts/

    You may need to have “Show Hidden Files , folders and drives options” checked in View Tab of Folder Options dialog of OS. Then AppData folder will be shown in the current user folder.

    You can do this through the Control Panel or via Windows Explorer:

    1. Open the Windows Explorer window.
    2. Click on the Organize button.
    3. Click on Folder and Search Options.
    4. Click View tab
    5. Check radio button ‘Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

    Kind Regards
