Publish projects from FrameMaker to RoboHelp Server 10

Follow the steps given below to publish projects from Adobe FrameMaker (2015 release update 3.1, and later) to Adobe RoboHelp Server 10.


These steps apply to Responsive HTML5 output. Before performing the steps in this procedure, ensure that your RoboHelp Server 10 is up and running.

  1. Select the file (.fm or .xml) or book (.book or .ditamap) that you want to publish.

  2. Select File > Publish.

  3. In the Publish pod, right-click Responsive HTML5 and select Edit Settings

    The Output tab appears with the Responsive HTML5 selected by default.

  4. Select the Server tab.

  5. Click New to create a RoboHelp Server destination to publish projects.

  6. In the New Destination dialog, provide Descriptive Name, Server Name, User ID, and Password to connect and authenticate to the RoboHelp Server.

  7. Click the Refresh button to refresh the list of areas from the server.

    If you do not select an area, the project is published on the default area.


    To publish to the default context (robohelp), enter the server name in the http://<server-name>:<port-number> format. FrameMaker appends /robohelp/server to it. Else, to publish to a context other than robohelp, specify a complete URL in the format http://<server-name>:<port-number>/<context-name>/server.

  8. Click OK to save the server configurations and close the New Destination dialog. 

    The new server destination is seen in the Servers dialog.

  9. Click Save and Close to close the Publish Settings dialog.

  10. To publish the project to the server, right-click Responsive HTML5 in the Publish pod and click Publish to Server.

  11. Click Publish in the Publish Result dialog. 

    You can view the files published on the server in the Publishing Result dialog.
