Distribute Multiscreen HTML5 output

When a Multiscreen HTML5 Help system is published to a central server/location, only information relevant to the current query is downloaded to the Web browser on user computers. If necessary, you can also choose to store the Help system locally on user computers.

By default, all Multiscreen HTML5 output files are placed in the !SSL!/Multiscreen_HTML5 project folder. It is recommended that you do not rename or move any subfolders under this folder.

To distribute Multiscreen HTML5 Help with an application, copy the Multiscreen_HTML5 folder and its contents to a location designated by the developer. Let the developer know the name of the start page (HTM file).

To publish Multiscreen HTML5 files to a server, website, or other network location, publish subprojects to the correct folder in the MergedProjects subfolder. While manually copying the subprojects to the MergedProjects subfolder, overwrite all the files—including screendata.js—except for the file parentdata.js, which should come from the parent project.

While distributing standalone Multiscreen HTML5 Help, copy the Multiscreen_HTML5 folder and its contents to a CD, server, or a location on user computers. Let your users know which start page (HTM file) they should select to view the Help system.

When publishing Help for a single screen profile, generate Multiscreen HTML5 output only for the particular screen profile. Do not copy and use the screen profile folder independently.
