Using TCS 5, RH11, FM12, all patched up, if I set a marker, such as "Filename" in FrameMaker, can RoboHelp use the contents of that marker to set the file name of the HTML file it creates? How? Thoughts?

Cheers,

Sean

Sorry, never tried using it (it’s a pretty obscure feature) – if you can set up a simple FM to RH example that’s not working, submit it to tcs.support@adobe.com<mailto:tcs.support@adobe.com>

I seem to remember reading something about using marker text in FM to control how the file appears in RH, but I don’t remember the details.

Well, I added a marker called Filename to every topic I have, and provided content that I want to be used as a filename. I set the topics to split on marker of type, Filename. However, this marker is not used and, in fact, it is not represented in the HTML output, so for some reason it is being stripped out. Thoughts?

Setting the file name through FM marker text & pagination (splitting content up into separate topics) are 2 different things. First off, why do you need to set the filenames of the resulting RH topics? Aren’t the Headings you are paginating on good enough?

Hi,

The headings are not good enough. I would think something like this would be supported, but the reason I need it is I am putting files into an existing system whereby the help calls are all fixed by filename.

Cheers,

Sean

How was it called before? I’d be looking at using Map IDs to do your CSH.

It was called by filename. This is a maufacturing-hardware based componenet, not really sophisticated software, so map IDs are out. And, as a side note, beginning at least with .NET in 2003, you could map to filenames anyway. Thoughts on how to set the filenames, such as by marker?

Cheers,

Sean

Hi,

Thanks for working with me on this. I appreciate your help. The last time I used RoboHelp was when Blue Sky owned it, at the original version 6. I see it has aged logically.

Cheers,

Sean
