User interface enhancements

Easy to use Ribbon Interface

Work more productively with a modern, workflow-centric, ribbon user interface. The new interface is designed to help you quickly find the commands that you need to complete a task. RoboHelp commands are organized into logical related groups and put together under sepa­rate tabs. Each tab relates to a type of RoboHelp activity, such as editing, reviewing, or output generation.

Find and replace enhancements

Work faster with bidirectional and multiline searches in the TOC, files, and index pods. Set the search scope to the current project or window, a specific folder, or all open files. Zip through search results in Design mode, and easily edit topics by double-clicking them.

Search and replace text in an HTML editor, an index, and a table of contents.

Named conditional build expressions

Easily manage a large number of conditional expressions in a project by giving them descrip­tive, easy-to-remember names. Eliminate the hassle of having to decipher the logic each time you need to use expressions.

The enhanced dialog box allows you to easily create new named expressions, and rename and delete existing expressions.

Enhanced conditional indicators

Maintain readability of content even when multiple tags are applied, using enhanced condi­tional tags indicators. With the new overline, easily find the tags that have been applied and where the conditions change within a topic. Besides content in topics and snippets, RoboHelp also applies the same overline conditional indicators on Project Manager objects, such as topics or items in a TOC.

Remember project state

Enjoy the convenience of having projects opened in exactly the same state in which they were closed. No need to remember which topics and pods were opened last; RoboHelp automati­cally restores them.

You also have the option to switch off this behavior if you do not want RoboHelp to remember the project state.

Adobe Captivate support

Easily integrate HTML5 and SWF content created with the latest release of Adobe Captivate into your RoboHelp files. Enhance your Help content with show-me demos, how-to movies, and interactive quizzes.

Colored and grayscale icons

Auto-hide ribbons
