Printing single page from Web Help

We are using Web Help template in our software. There is no Print Preview or Print button included into Web Help template page. Just wander if it is possible to include it to template for user to have an easy way of printing one page, one topic at the time.

HelpSmith allows you to use a macro hyperlink (Print Topic) that can be applied to regular text, or to an image with a "printer" icon.

  1. In the Project Manager, under the Templates node, select your template for editing.
  2. In the word processor, insert an image (click: Insert|Picture) that will work as the Print button.
  3. Select the image, and then click Insert|Hyperlink.
  4. In the Insert Hyperlink dialog, in the left sidebar, click Macro.
  5. In the Command box, select "Print Topic".
  6. Click OK.
