Hello.

I am using RoboHelp 2015.  After outputting my chm file, when I open the file it is always positioned at the upper left of the screen and is a little too small.  Where in RoboHelp 2015 can I go to change the the attributes of size and position for how the chm file is shown when run?

The only output option with the word "Window" I see is the one below with a plus sign but that option asks me to create a new window

Is that the place or is there another part of the application I should be looking in for RoboHelp 2015?

Hi there

I was recording a video to show you how to accomplish this and I see that during that time Uncle John popped in!

Hopefully he won't mind my sharing the video here.

Hmmm, somehow that video managed to encode without audio.

Stand by. Encoding another. I'll post again with a new link.

Wow Thanks Rick.  A video is the ultimate reply. If a picture is worth a thousand words I can only image what a video is worth.  I had checked on YouTube but found nothing on this for RoboHelp 2015, I'm sure the community of users of RoboHelp 2015 who use chm files will appreciate this response. I'm going to watch it a few times to make sure I take good notes. Thanks again!
