RoboHelp 2017 - New Responsive HTML5 Layouts

Two layouts have been added to RoboHelp 2017 that do not use iFrames and have new features.

Indigo Layout

The Indigo layout breaks away from the traditional tri-pane appearance with a traditional Table of Contents and shows the "books" as below.

The Index, Glossary and Filter widgets are easily hidden.

Favorites

The image top left is a placeholder where you can insert your own image. Top right is an icon to access Favorites. Click here for more information about adding and using Favorites.

Search

Search now features auto-complete and is much quicker. Click here for more information about Faster Search with Auto Complete.

Thumbnail Images

Using this layout you can now display thumbnail size images and allow the user to access the full size image if they want to see it. Click here for more information about Thumbnail Images.

Accessibility

The Indigo layout is 508 compliant. Click here for more information on accessibility.

Ocean Layout

Please note that this layout was later withdrawn because of technical issues.

The Ocean layout also breaks away from the traditional tri-pane appearance with a traditional Table of Contents and shows the "books" as below.

Favorites

Favorites are not built into the Ocean Layout.

Search

Search now features auto-complete and is much quicker. Click here for more information about Faster Search with Auto Complete.

Thumbnail Images

Using this layout you can now display thumbnail size images and allow the user to access the full size image if they want to see it. Click here for more information about Thumbnail Images.

Accessibility

The Ocean layout is 508 compliant. Click here for more information on accessibility.

I am not sure whether this layout was compliant from the outset or whether you have to apply Update 1 first. Add this layout afresh if you created it pre Update 1 but, as above, note it is now withdrawn.

Azure Blue and Charcoal Grey

These layouts are 508 compliant in RoboHelp 2017. They may have been previously but I don't have confirmation of that.
