A HelpSmith project can be stored in one of the following formats:
The Media Repository files are stored in a separate folder (named like: ProjectName_files) located in the same directory as the .HSMX project file.
The Media Repository files are stored in a sub folder (named: Media) located in the directory that contains the .HSMP project file.
The key advantages of the .HSMP format are:
•Compatibility with version control systems (e.g. Git, SVN, etc.).
•Compatibility with external translation tools.
•The possibility to edit project files by using an external XML editor, or plain text editor.
Remark: The possibility to save the project in the .HSMP format is available in HelpSmith Ultimate (or higher) edition only.
A help project stored in the .HSMP format
The Media Repository files are stored in a separate folder (named like: ProjectName_files) located in the same directory as the .HSM project file.
Remark: For backward compatibility, the newer XML-based HelpSmith version allows you to open existing .HSM project files. However, you can save your help project to the .HSMX or .HSMP format only.
