Output generation basics

You generate output to your local hard drive. When you generate a layout output for the first time, a new subfolder is created for the generated output files. It is in the project folder under \!SSL!\[layout name].

Note: Each time you generate output, RoboHelp deletes the output folder files created in the last session. If you add or hand-code files in the output subfolder, copy them to another location before you generate output.
  1. In the Single Source Layouts Pod, right-click the layout. Select Generate.

  2. Set options according to the layout type.

  3. Click Finish.

Tips for optimal project generation

  • Work locally, not from a network.

    RoboHelp must access all of the files in your project when generating the output. If a project consists of thousands of files, even a minor delay caused by network traffic compounds as RoboHelp attempts to access each file. These delays can adversely affect the generation times.

  • Exclude the project folder from virus scan.

    Note: Turning off virus-scanning software increases speed but is not recommended for security reasons.
  • Ensure that your system has sufficient memory.
