Set the default language and other preferences

Default Language for New Projects

Allows you to change the default language for every project that is created using the RoboHelp application.

Use Underscores In File Names

Saves topic filenames with underscores between words (for example, My_Help_Topic.htm). For HTML Help projects, topic filenames require underscores rather than spaces. This convention enables the book or page to synchronize with the topic content displayed at the right side of the viewer.

Automatically Check For Updates

The program checks for updates when you quit the program. You can also enable this option by selecting File > Help > Check For Updates.

Allow Editing Of Multiple Topics

Opens topics in different tabs in Design Editor and allows editing. Deselect this option to work in single-topic mode.

Clear Project Cache (.cpd File) Before Opening Any Project

Controls whether the old <ProjectName>.cpd file will be deleted each time while opening a project and a new <ProjectName>.cpd will be created from the project files.

Remember Project State

Check this option to ensure that RoboHelp remembers the location of the opened files and pods. The next time you open RoboHelp, the project will open in the same state. Uncheck this option to prevent RoboHelp from remembering the current state.

Auto-Compile Outdated Files

When you view or publish your project, the program automatically generates your primary layout when the output files are out of date. If this option is disabled, the program prompts you to generate the primary layout if the output files are out of date.

Auto-display Output View

Shows the Output View at the bottom of the program window when a project is generating.

Convert RoboHelp-edited Topics To HTML

Converts XHTML topics created or edited in RoboHelp into HTML in the output. Topics created or edited with third-party editors are not converted.

Show Learning Resources On Starter Page

Show or hide the area in which a stream of learning resources, such as webinars, video tutorials, and whitepapers, is displayed on the Starter page.
