Hi

Please can someone help?

I am trying to generate a PDF version of our Robohelp file (in Robohelp 10) for users to download (the file is a Help file for our software).

However, when I generate this via the 'Printed Documentation' option in Single Source Layouts, whether as PDF or Word doc, it only generates a two page document with the Printed Documentation Name on the first page, and 'No table of contents entries found' printed on the second.

The file was imported from an earlier version of Robohelp, if that helps.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Dan Wait

Create a new print layout, not a duplicate. Run through the wizard with the defaults other than setting it to only create a Word document on the first page and applying your template on the last page.Any better then?See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips @petergrainge

Check your Macro settings in Word. They need to be set to the lowest level.

If that is not it, try generating from one of the sample projects and then post back here.

Click Open on the RoboHelp Starter page and then click Samples in the ribbon on the left.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply, Peter.

I have set the Macro settings to low as suggested, and the problem remains.

Also, the sample projects generated as docs/pdfs fine.

Furthermore, (my apologies, I omitted to mention this) our other software's help file (we have two products) generates docs/pdfs without a problem.

Thank you for your help.

Occasionally something corrupts a layout. Fortunately it is rare.
