In a recent post I explained the differences between a RoboHelp Server context and a RoboHelp Server area. In an older post I covered how to create an RoboHelp Server area. To complete the jigsaw, this post covers how to create a RoboHelp Server context.
Adobe RoboHelp Server allows you to host multiple help files and help file versions through a combination of contexts and areas. To many the concept of contexts and areas is confusing. Where should you publish? To understand where to publish a help file, you first need to understand the difference between a Context and an Area.
A weird thing happened today whilst one of my team was attempting to publish WebHelp Pro output to the Adobe RoboHelp Server application. They kicked off the publish process the same way as they had done countless times before, but it just didn’t want to play ball.

Last week I attended the UA Europe Conference in Dublin. There a presented a case study of our use of Adobe RoboHelp Server. With it we have been able to implement some major improvements.
