Hi,

 

I am trying to generate a chm file in RH 2019 Classic view. I choose an output location and hit Generate and nothing happens. It says Select Webhelp output SSL but there is nothing in the dropdown to select. This initialization dialog looks different than when I generate chms in my other help files. Please see screenshot below.

Look at the title of the dialog "Generate CHM from Webhelp". You have opened a script that converts an existing CHM to WebHelp.

 

Go to the Outputs tab and use the CHM output as you do in your other projects.

Thanks Peter,

 

I see that the chm I chose in output is different than what I used on other help files. But I don't see any other chm choice here.

The other Help file that I have has the correct chm output for me to use (see image).

Microsoft HTML is a CHM.

Hi Peter,

I found the problem. The chm output is called Microsoft HTML Help in this file. In my other Help file it's called CHM Help file.

 

Thanks,

 

Julianna

That's what I said. ☺️

 

You can right click and name it whatever you want.
