The designer only needs to learn the skin editor but if there isn't time for that, I have sent you a Private Message with details of someone who might be able to help.

Probably your easiest way is to go with the Frameless output preset and have a web designer customize it for you.

@Jeff_Coatsworth I think a web designer would have to learn their way around the skin editor unless you have something else in mind? I would agree they would be better able to understand the settings but they would nonetheless have a learning curve.

 

@Belén Benítez You haven't said which version of RoboHelp you are using and which type of skin. Frameless has many more customisation options built into the skin editor. Have you looked at the supplied skins and seen how far off they are from what you want? 

 

If it is simple customisation, then you will likely soon find your way around the editor or you can ask here. Beyond that explain a bit more and where you are located. You may have to work remotely with someone. I can think of one company based in the USA but that would be paid consultancy.

I would suspect that a designer would skip the skin editor & just manipulate the HTML5 output through CSS and JS.

Hi Peter and Jeff.

 

We are using Robohelp 2020.8.34, skin frameless Studio, we want the skins to be similar to our corporate brand and products.

 

The designer of the company mentioned that he must first learn the tool to be able to customize it and that learning takes time, we are short on time.

 

If you could tell us the name of the consultancy we could find out, could it be?

 

Best regards!

Who said anything about HTML5 skins? Anyone about to create a skin would be strongly advised to go Frameless. The editor is much more powerful and it's always better to do things with the editor so that updates don't mess things up.
