Huh. I just tried to set a printed documentation output to be my primary, but the setting is greyed out. I've looked at a couple of other projects, and I cannot set printed documentation to primary in any of them.

Does anyone else find that weird?

So the layout is available but not the Set As Primary, correct?

That's right. Just the right-click "set as primary layout" option is not available for that type of SSL.

I can't confirm that right now but it doesn't surprise me. As a developer I

worked with would say "bummer that" to confirm the finding was correct when

for whatever reason it wasn't on his list of fixes.

Essentially RoboHelp is an online tool.

Time for a feature request.

I agree with Peter. Likely, this is intentional as RoboHelp is not intended to create Printed Documentation but online documentation. Printed output is secondary.

My guess is that if you are creating printed output only, and RoboHelp only does this by creating a Word document. And you have to have Word to do it. You are likely just expected to open Word for creating the document. RoboHelp would be overkill.

Cheers... Rick

Thanks for confirming. It's not a big deal for me; I was just surprised, and I thought it used to be possible to set it for any output.

(Sorry, peeps who create web-based as an added extra. )
