HelpSmith allows you to automatically generate a printed manual with a title page, table of contents, and alphabetical index.
To compile a Printed Manual:
1.On the Project menu, click Compile (or press F9).
2.At the dialog-box, select Printed Manual as the output help format.
3.Select build tags, and other compilation options that will be used with the given compilation.
You can compile a Printed Manual by using the Project|Compile|Create Printed Manual menu command or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+P. This command skips the step of selecting compilation options and automatically applies options that were selected previously (or default options) for this output help format.
HelpSmith will generate a ready-to-print document based on the table of contents of your help project. If the table of contents is empty, HelpSmith will generate the printed manual by the common topic list (if allowed).
The printed manual document will be displayed in the preview window. To send it to your printer device, use the Print button.
You can use a specially designed help topic instead of an automatically generated element such as the front page, table of contents, or index. That can be useful in some cases.
Customizing the Printed Manual
1.On the Project menu, click the Options command.
2.Select Printed Manual on the left sidebar.
3.Set the preferred settings, and then click OK.
The following topics describe different categories of the options related to the printed manual creation.
