This course teaches you the essential RoboHelp skills needed to create and deliver user assistance (help systems, policies and procedures, and knowledgebases). Step-by-step instructions guide you through the process of creating new RoboHelp projects and topics from scratch. Learn to import content from Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, PDFs, and HTML files. Enhance your topics with graphics, dynamic effects (DHTML), multimedia (eLearning content created using Adobe Captivate). Improve the navigation of your content by adding hyperlinks, indexes, and glossaries. Increase your production efficiency by learning about cascading style sheets, variables, snippets, and master pages. Learn how to control the look of the final WebHelp output via Skins. Generate output (Single Source Layouts) that will allow you to deliver help content to the iPad and other tablets, smartphones, and desktops using output formats such as Responsive HTML5, Multiscreen HTML5, WebHelp, Microsoft HTML Help, Adobe AIR Help, PDF, and eBooks.
