A more efficient workflow enables multiple sections of a project at the same time while accommodating various media types including responsive HTML5, multiscreen HTML5, PDFs, etc.

RoboHelp now handles dependent files more efficiently, such as images and snippets linked from within a topic, more systematically than before, with each change syncronising between Resource Manager and project. This marks an improvement over earlier versions, which were restricted in their ability to sync changes between locations.

RoboHelp’s latest release also brings with it an improved system for setting media-specific style properties in its topic style sheet, meaning that you no longer have to create and maintain separate Screen Profiles for various media formats – something which can become cumbersome in larger projects.

Adobe has made collaboration on writing easier by improving its online review capabilities.

With features such as its Microcontent editor, fully integrated workflow for managing translations (both manual and machine), export XLIFF files capability, right-to-left language support and right-to-left editing support – it offers businesses all they need for reaching wider audiences with content.

Apply it to images or tables you’ve positioned using content properties panel; even change their origin for transformation for larger effects that affect position and size on page.

RoboHelp’s Microcontent feature lets you easily create bite-sized bits of information that are eye-catching and quick for viewers to digest, encouraging their curiosity as they explore a larger piece of content. Create various forms of microcontent including Chatbots, Search Snippets and FAQs.

RoboHelp makes creating Microcontent groups easy. Simply provide an intent and response; these responses may be created or taken from existing topic content. In addition, add keywords and tags for enhanced searchability of this group.

When you are ready to create Microcontent, click on the Quick Generate button on the standard toolbar and choose one or more presets. A progress bar will display while output is generated; once completed, view its publish log in the Output Presets panel for that preset.

With the Output Options dialog box, you can further tailor your output settings. As well as changing the number of outputs, you can also customize screen layout and include or exclude topic titles from final output.
