Customizing RoboHelp Interfaces and Front Ends

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you bored with the same old look of your RoboHelp projects? Would you like to know how to make minor changes to the traditional help interface so your help does not look like every other help system on the market? What about customizing a Flash skin for a fresh new look? Or, would you like to learn to make amazing front ends that make you look like a consummate pro with just a simple graphics tool and RoboHelp? You don’t even need any significant skills as a graphic designer.

In this free webinar, Adobe RoboHelp specialist Lin Laurie will show you examples of some custom front ends that she has developed for customers over the years and that have that “wow” factor.

You will also learn how to:

  • Make simple changes to traditional RoboHelp skins and to save them as new templates
  • Load a new template into your project
  • Work with flash skins and to make change to them
  • You can create a custom front end for your own web help system

Presenter: Lin Laurie

Lin is a former software developer who found she liked the training and documentation parts of her job more than she enjoyed coding. After being a developer for ten years, she started her own magazine, where a Microsoft editor discovered her and invited her to come to work at Microsoft. She was assigned to work on the Windows Software Developer’s Kit and the Window’s API Guide was her very first project.

She took the University of Washington’s Technical Writing and Editing Certificate program in 1993-94 where she met Joe Welinske. She has been developing RoboHelp projects since working as an intern with Joe Welinske of WritersUA in 1993 where he first made her learn to develop online help without any authoring tools before letting her learn to use RoboHelp. She’s a contributing writer to Joe’s second book on online help called Developing Online Help for Windows 95.

Since first working on RoboHelp in 1993, she’s been providing training, consulting, and presentations on various topics related to Adobe RoboHelp and Captivate through her company, www.linlaurie.com. She has also been a teacher at Bellevue College, and loves to teach or train others. She’s currently the president of the Puget Sound Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication, where she provides professional development programming for others.
