Generate WebHelp

Before submitting your work, you'll need to generate it so it becomes viewable in a web browser. By generating, you are producing an output that's viewable on any computer with a web browser. You need to generate at the very end of each module. If you generate and then make a change to the project, you'll need to generate again before zipping and submitting your work.

To generate WebHelp

  1. In the Outputs(SSL) pod, right-click the WebHelp output, and then click Set as Primary Output.
  2. Right-click the WebHelp output, and then click Generate.
  3. Click Save and Generate.
  4. Click View Result to view your work in the computer's default web browser.
