Hi RoboHelp Community,

 

When I researched RoboHelp a short while ago, I stumbled across a training video that included a practice file. I just can't seem to find that video now or the practice file. Does this sound familiar to anyone?? Or, is anyone willing to part with a file/template I can use (I started the 30-day trial yesterday)?

 

The training videos I'm finding now all seem to be geared towards marketing the new features/functions (which are amazing . . . don't get me wrong!), but I need a little i+1 help to hit the ground running with a current project! 

 

I greatly appreciate all you do. Thanks in advance!!!

Tammy (TK Anderson)

You will find copies in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 2020\resources\data\template\projects but don't try to run them from there. Copy them to a folder outside fo Program Files. Put them in Documents > My RoboHelp Projects for example. ________________________________________________________ See www.grainge.org for free Authoring and RoboHelp Information

There should be sample projects in your My Documents > My Robohelp Projects folder for you to play with. The "factory" versions are in your Program Files - Robohelp folder to copy from if you want to restore them after playing.

Hi Jeff,

 

Thanks for your help!!! I'm fairly certain I overwrote it by importing a template designed in a much older version. Bummer!!! Also, where can I find those to restore? I poked all around my program files RoboHelp folder and don't see it anywhere. 

 

I installed the trial yesterday and this is my build -> Version 2020.4.173.

 

Thanks!

Tammy

Oh, and make sure you're running the 4th patch version - there was a bug in the initial release of RH2020.0 that didn't think there were updates available via Help > Updates. Post back if that's the case.

The About RoboHelp sample project covers how to use the features. Compass Travel is more about demoing them.

Hi Peter, 

 

Unfortunately, I think I might have overwritten the About RoboHelp and/or Compass Travel files. Can you provide them for me or point me where I can find them? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Ok, that's the latest patch 4 version. You should find the "factory" copies of the samples in c:\Program Files\ - but I'm not seeing them there either on a copy of RH2020. Not sure where they're hiding now...but you could always re-run the installer to get them back.
Found them! Made the mistake of looking for "sample" instead of "projects"
