RH 2017 - Can we have table header repeat on all pages in printed documentation?

Hi,

We have a table that overflows to multiple pages when we generate a printed documentation (Doc/PDF). The customer wants the table header to be repeated at the top, similar to the setting that we have in MS Word.

Right now the header does not repeat.

The workaround is to generate a doc output and then manually apply the repeat table header setting in MS word and then save it as a PDF.

Is it possible to handle it in RH 2017?

The short answer is No.

In Word Macros on my site there are a number of table macros that can apply whatever settings you customise it to do, such as apply repeat headings. One will let you blast through while others find the next table and let you decide.

This does not work for RoboHelp 2020. While I can't currently test using Classic, I doubt it works for that version either.

You can try in one of the sample projects in RoboHelp. If the Sample projects aren't on the starter screen you can find them in your Documents/My RoboHelp Projects folder.
