Our RoboHelp project is under source control and ideally we would like our generated output to appear in a folder relative to where the .rhproj file is located. Robohelp 2019 does not allow relative paths, which is a pain if multiple writers are working on the project (they have their own copies, and the project is under source control).
Any workarounds other than a directory symbolic link?
Project Name Folder
Output Files (With sub folders for each output type)
That keeps everything for one project in one place.
Sorry, I am not understanding what you are telling me. As I said, we want to use Git to store our project.
If user Kevin checks out the project to eg: C:\Users\Kevin\Help\PROJECT-NAME, and a second user Bob on a different machine checks out the project to eg. C:\Users\Bob\Help\PROJECT-NAME, and the folder structure under "PROJECT-NAME" is specified like you say, does that not require a relative path to refer to "Output Files\type" ?
No, what Peter is saying is that everyone who checks out the project will put it in the same relative location (NOT employing their unique user name) like:
C:\Projects\<project_name_that_is_consistant_with_all_users>\<project_files>\ and \<output_files>\
Doing it this way ensures that if anyone does any links to anything inside that <project_name> folder, they continue to work across all users and outputs.
I have the same problem. I am going to post a new topic against this with a more includsive title.
