For more information, view this community post.

Enhanced Variable and Variable Set editor

Previously, accessing the Variables panel from the Author tab and Variable Sets from the Output tab resulted in frequent switching between the Author and Output tabs. Update 4 of RoboHelp brings a thorough revamp to the Variable and Variable Sets editor to give you a single place to manage your variables and variable sets. User Interface of Variable and Variable Sets editors has now been merged. That streamlines the process of managing both directly from the Author tab. Additionally, the tabular view provides a quick and simple display of all Variables, various Variable Sets, and their respective values, allowing you to easily view and edit multiple variables at once.

For more information view, Create and use variables for easy update.

Enhanced Images report showing Alt Text for images

Managing a project with lots of images can be challenging particularly in terms of identifying those images that lack alt text. RoboHelp 2022 Update 4 focuses on the increasing importance of accessibility. Hence an Alt Text column has been added to enhance the Images report. This enhancement enables you to easily view and verify alt text for all the images at one glance. Additionally, you can also use the Alt Text filter in the Settings panel to filter the images based on whether their alt text is empty or non-empty.

For more information, view Images reports.

Enhancements to PDF output

There have been several enhancements to PDF output, which include:

  • Setting page order and number of pages per sheet
  • Hyperlinking Glossary page in PDF output
  • Disabling chapter AutoNumbering in TOC
  • Resetting the page number of only the first occurrence of a Page Layout

Setting Page Order and number of pages per sheet

With RoboHelp Update 4, you can now specify the page order and control the number of pages you want on a particular sheet of the PDF output. You can choose from predefined page order options or create your custom order. Page order allows you to print a booklet kind of output, where by collating, folding, and stapling the sheets, you can create a single book with pages in the correct sequence. You can also define the number of pages you can print on a single sheet, allowing you to create outputs like three-fold pamphlets.

For more information, view Page Organization.

Hyperlnking glossary page in native PDF output

With the latest update, you can add any Glossary term into a topic and hyperlink it to the Glossary page in the PDF output. This functionality creates a link within the PDF output, allowing you to click the term and be directed to the Glossary page to read the definition, ensuring a smooth experience. For more information, view Link glossary terms to glossary page.

Disabling chapter AutoNumbering in TOC

Often, there's a preference not to display the chapter autonumber in the Table of Contents in the PDF output as dictated by the stylesheet. With this update, you can display chapter names without chapter autonumbers in the TOC by simply deselecting the Do not show chapter autonumber in the TOC option in the Template > Settings > General.

For more information view, Do not show chapter autonumber in the TOC.

Resetting the page number of only the first Occurrence of a Page Layout

Previously, you could reset the page number of the initial page in any layout. This used to reset the first page of all instances of that layout. However, the latest RoboHelp update enables you to reset the page number specifically for only the first occurence of any Page Layout, with the following pages being numbered automatically thereafter. For example, if you set the page number to restart from 2 and select the option Apply to the first occurence only, then only the first page of the first chapter will begin from page number 2. Subsequent pages will then continue numbering automatically after 2.

For more information, view Page Numbering Restart.
