I'm linking MS Word documents into a RoboHelp project. On a smaller RoboHelp project, I copied and pasted the footers into the body of the text because the footers were not showing up in RoboHelp. The project I have in front of me has way too many footers and will be updated too often to do that, but I haven't figured out how to do it automatically. Do you know how?
Yes, you can import the footers from Word. If the document is going to update frequently, you should be linking the Word document into RoboHelp instead of importing the text. After importing the document, and prior to generating the topics, choose File > Project Settings. Click the Edit button to edit the conversion settings for Word documents. From the Other Settings category, you'll find an option to Convert Footer (and the Headers too).
