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.

June 2019 - This page covers the steps for use with RoboHelp Classic versions up to and including RoboHelp 2019 Classic. See the RoboHelp Tour for the steps in RoboHelp New UI.

Printed Output Topics

I have covered the procedure from start to finish for the normal requirements, then I cover making changes and the issues that crop up from time to time. If you are reading these topics for the first time I recommend that you read through all the content before starting to set anything up, otherwise you might take a path that is wrong for you. I cannot cover how to get exactly the document you want. What I can do is explain how it all works so that you can figure that out.
