Adobe RoboHelp HTML 11: The Essentials Workbook

"Adobe RoboHelp HTML 11: The Essentials" is a self-paced, step-by-step workbook that will teach you the essential skills needed to create and deliver user assistance (Help systems, policies and procedures, and knowledgebases). By following step-by-step instructions, you will learn to create RoboHelp projects from scratch, and how to add content via importing from Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, PDFs and HTML.

You'll learn to enhance your content with graphics, dynamic effect (DHTML), and multimedia (eLearning content created using Adobe Captivate), and how to improve the navigation of your content by adding hyperlinks, indexes and glossaries.

Improve your production efficiency by learning about cascading style sheets, variables, snippets and master pages. Learn how to control the look of the final WebHelp output via Skins.

The output files you learn to generate (Single Source Layouts) will allow you to deliver content to the iPad and other tablets, smartphones, and desktops using output formats such as Responsive HTML5, Multiscreen HTML5, WebHelp, Microsoft HTML Help, Adobe AIR Help, PDF and eBooks.
