RoboHelp comes with powerful publishing capabilities so you can generate your output in many formats. Choose from a variety of output preset types, such as Responsive HTML5, PDF, and Mobile App, and cater to users from various platforms. Output presets are easy-to-configure; you can use the many settings to create multiple Help systems from the same project with different content, layouts, and experiences.
With RoboHelp (2019 release), you can experience a smooth output generation, even as you continue working on your project.
Before you generate your project output in RoboHelp, you need to create and configure an output preset. Once the output preset is ready, you can use the preset to generate the output.
You can access the output preset from the Output Presets panel in the Output toolbar. Alternatively, you can access the output preset in the Quick Generate dialog box of the authoring window.
To identify the type of output preset from the Output Presets panel or in the Quick Generate dialog box, check the icon before the output preset name. The following icons correspond to the given types of output presets:
