Printed Output



What's covered?

One of the regular problem areas for authors is printed output from RoboHelp. Like many others, I hacked around until I got it working the way I wanted and carried on from there. By putting in some set up time, printing now works without effort. I have recorded my findings in the hope that it will help others from wasting valuable time.

Oct 2020 - This page now covers RoboHelp versions from RoboHelp 9 to RoboHelp 2020.
