Viewing Output in the Output Folder
ePublisher stores generated output pages and images in the Output folder. By default, ePublisher creates an Output folder in the following location:
*If you are creating a project using ePublisher Express, by default ePublisher creates the Output folder in the My Documents\ePublisher Express Projects\ProjectName folder, where ProjectName is the name of the project.
*If you are creating a project using ePublisher Designer, by default ePublisher creates the Output folder in the My Documents\ePublisher Designer Projects\ProjectName folder, where ProjectName is the name of the project.
The Output folder contains individual output folders for each one of your targets. For example, if your project contains targets for WebWorks Help, Microsoft HTML Help, and Dynamic HTML, then there will be three folders, one for each of these targets, in the Output folder.
You can view output files for all output formats other than Wiki-based output formats by opening them directly from the Output folder. You can only view output files for Wiki-based output formats by deploying the files to a Wiki server computer. For more information about deploying output files to a Wiki server computer, see “Deploying Output”.
You can also view output files for all output formats other than Wiki-based output formats by opening them from the ePublisher user interface. You cannot open files for Wiki-based output formats from the ePublisher user interface. When you open output files from the ePublisher user interface, ePublisher opens the Output folder for the active target you are currently working with in ePublisher. For more information about specifying an active target and working with targets, see “Specifying Active Targets” and “Working with Targets”.
To view output in the Output Folder
1. On the Project menu, select the target next to Active Target for which you want to view output.
Note: You must generate output before you can view output in the Output folder. For more information about generating output, see “Generating Output”.
2. On the View menu, click Output Directory. ePublisher opens Windows Explorer and displays a folder based on the name of your target. This Output folder contains the output files ePublisher generated for the active target.
