Has anyone converted their JavaHelp from ForeHelp to RoboHelp? I looking to convert a 450 topics help system, and tips or tricks are appreciated. Thanks,

Hello,
I am working with RoboHelp's last version X4.1, JavaHelp 2.0 R1 and
everything works fine, except from some look details.

It's a RoboHelp issue. They're software hasn't been updated since 1.1.3
was released to accomodate the latest versions of Javahelp. I think
David Knopf has a workaround on www.knopf.com for 1.1.3. Unfortunately
there isn't a workaround for 2.0. At least there isn't one until
RoboHelp makes a change.

H�l�ne,

You wrote that everything works fine when you use the latest version of RoboHelp together with JavaHelp 2.0 - "Except from some look details".

What exactly are these look details? Are there any non-displayed features, e.g. link controls, tables or formatting in general? I would very much like to know this since I am thinking about acquiring the latest version of RoboHelp. I will, however, only do this if that version solves any of the JavaHelp problems that I experience with RoboHelp Office 2002.
