This is the eight in a series of blogs that cluster together some very brief, but useful “how to” videos on important features in RoboHelp 10. Part 1 of this series focus on navigation links and Part 2 focused on dealing with two types of graphics, Part 3 focused on TOCs and profiles while Part 4 focused on bookmarks and previewing conditional content, Part 5 covered sharing resources and Part 6 covered “see also” and “lean” workspaces. Part 7 focused on RoboScreenCapture and Multilevel lists and Part 8 focused on correcting links while Part 9 focused on conditional text. Our previous blog, Part 10, focused on how to define Conditional Build Tags (CBTs) and how to associate a CBT with a custom single source layout to HTML5. Today’s blog/video focuses on some simple choices you need to make before publishing your RoboHelp project to eBook format.
