User-defined variables store static global information that can be used repeatedly in your project, making information portable and simple to update. When you modify a variable or value, every occurrence of that variable or value is updated across the project. The User Defined Variables pod (available from Project > Open > Pods) lists all the user-defined variables in a project.
tip: You can import documents with variables into a project.
note: When you upgrade from previous versions of RoboHelp, variable values are converted to HTML text, and these variable values appear in the Default Variable Set.
