RoboHelp 2019 Update 7 Released

Adobe released an update to RoboHelp 2019 today.

You can access this free update either by using the Help > Updates command in RoboHelp or by visiting

Here’s what’s been added and fixed:

Feature enhancements

Generate output in command-line mode

Like RoboHelp Classic, you can now invoke RoboHelp 2019 as a command-line utility for output generation without launching the GUI. For example:

Robohelp.exe –cl “C:\Latte.rhpj” -o “My Responsive Output” 
-l “C:\logfile.html” -p “C:\outputfolder”

Argument values containing spaces must be enclosed in double quotes.

For more information, see Generate output using a command-line utility.

Rename glossary terms and variables

You can now edit glossary terms and variable names. RoboHelp simultaneously updates all references of these items wherever applicable in a project, such as topic titles and content, Table of Contents, and output presets.
