Demos of Various Types of
Lessons Built with
Adobe RoboHelp 9
There are two main types of Help projects that can be built with
Adobe RoboHelp 9.
a more traditional Online Help (often called
WebHelp) application. With this type of help, the learner
is presented with basic concepts for a particular
application and then provided step-by-step instructions
for performing some tasks in the application. The
product produced is a series of web pages. In some
businesses, this type if help is called Navigational
Aids, online help provided to help the learner in
navigating a new Browser-based application or
Desktop application. In this example, the
application is a Desktop application.
The section shows the various
types of outputs from Adobe RoboHelp. The ToolBook Help project used below
in many of the examples is a
shorter version of the ToolBook Concepts project shown above
which was published two different ways (WebHelp and
FlashHelp). The various versions show how the Skin can be
changed to make the project look dramatically different.
This shows a
basic Help file (called Microsoft HTML Help). This type of
Help could serve as a standalone application on the
Desktop. To view it, just save the zip to your Desktop
(or other location), unzip the file
to the Desktop, and launch the *.chm file. To me
the label HTML Help is a bit misleading since this
is a standalone Desktop application.

The links here show the
two types of Printed Documentation that can be created
from a RoboHelp project. Notice in both documents how
you get the Table of Contents, Glossary, and Index parts
of the project printed along with the body of the
document. Just save and unzip the file to view it.
