Adobe released RoboHelp 2019 Update 1 today. Use the Help > Updates menu item in RoboHelp 2019 to update, or visit https://www.adobe.com/support/robohelp/downloads.html to download the updater manually.
Following is a list of the feature enhancements and fixes.
Access Output and Author views in a single screen
In RoboHelp 2019 release, Author and Output views opened as two separate windows.
Now, Author and Output views are merged and accessible through respective tabs in the standard toolbar in RoboHelp workspace.
For more information, see Get to know the RoboHelp workspace.
Work with an enhanced expanding and drop-down text
You can now collapse or expand an individual or all the expanding/drop-down texts in your topic in Author view and topic preview. You can also toggle the display of the expanding/drop-down text boundary.
Work with enhanced master pages
You can now access master pages through the Author toolbar in Author view instead of Output view.
You can also apply a master page to a topic during topic creation. Topic preview also displays the master page applied to the topic.
For more information, see Work with master pages.
Work with browse sequences
You can now add, edit, and delete browse sequences. In a browse sequence, you can drag-and-drop topics from the Contents panel and TOC, change the sequence of topics, and delete topics.
For more information, see Create and manage browse sequences.
Work with topic TOC
You can now insert, edit, or delete a topic TOC in topics and master pages.

For more information, see Work with labels.
Cancel the generation of output
You can now cancel output generation from both the Quick Generate and Presets panel.
For more information, see Generate output.

For more information, see Create and manage a Table of Contents.
Automatic upgradation of skins
For more information, see Upgrade a skin.
Rename output presets
You can now rename output presets.

Toggle the display of paragraph markers
In your open topic, you can now toggle the display of paragraph markers.

Work with an enhanced glossary
In the Glossary panel, you can now expand only one glossary at a time. In the expanded view, you can use context menus against each glossary and glossary term.
For more information, see Create and manage a glossary.
Spaces in topic filenames are converted to underscores
When you add a topic in your project and type the topic name, RoboHelp automatically converts the spaces in the filename to underscores. You can change this setting if necessary.
For more information, see General tab in Topic Properties.
Use new topic closing options
If multiple topics are open, use a topic tab’s context menu to close a topic, close other topics except for the current topic, and close all topics. While closing multiple topics, you can save the changes in a specific topic.
For more information, see Topic tab context menu options.
Edit specific output presets from the Quick Generate panel
From the Quick Generate panel, you can now select and open an output preset to edit it, instead of having to search for the output preset in the Output Settings window. You can select and edit multiple output presets.
For more information, see Generate output.
Work with an enhanced index
You can now cross-reference an index keyword or a subkeyword to another keyword and publish the cross-references. You can also add project variables while creating or editing index keywords. You can use index keywords associated with topics in search. Index keywords have the same ranking as search keywords.
For more information, see Create and manage an index.
Locate a topic in a TOC from the Contents panel
You can now use the context menu in the Contents panel to view all the TOCs linked to a topic and locate the topic in a specific TOC.
