Frameless Layouts and CSH in RoboHelp 2017- Mutually Exclusive?

I will be upgrading to RoboHelp 2017 from RoboHelp 2015. The promotional videos show Frameless Layouts, which is the direction I want to go. I currently produce the output in a merged help, tri-pane context. 18 merged projects, over 800 topics hooked up to individual programs - press F1 and get the topic for that screen. If (in RH 2017) I produce frameless layouts like this sample:

  1. I loose context sensitivity?
  2. The merged TOC books are the Icons at the bottom?
  3. The Search, Index, etc. are still merged across all projects?

Thank you in advance for your kind reply.

Mark

Does "frameless" = Responsive HTML5? If you're creating WebHelp right now, then, yes CSH calls will change if you go to HTML5.

On the TOC book order, it's not so much they are at the bottom, the list goes left to right, down a row and left to right etc. So if you only had four books across the whole merge, there would be just one row.

The image you are showing suggests you are looking at 2017 without the updates applied. You can apply them to the trial if that is what you are using. You will need to select the Indigo layout again by clicking the Gallery button and naming it Indigo2 or suchlike.

You will see a Back button above the rows.
