Using the Theme Designer

Since the original implementation of Doc-To-Help themes, authors have needed a method by which they could modify themes to fit their needs. The ComponentOne Theme Designer provides you with the means to develop and save customized themes. The theme designer gives you control over navigation, background styles and image insertion for the any defined window, secondary window or pop-up. These themes can be used for HTML Help, NetHelp, JavaHelp and Help 2.0 targets.

The Theme Designer allows you to modify the Navigation Bar, Topic Text, Pop-up windows, Secondary windows and more by simply clicking on the item in the left pane.

For more information on using themes, see Using Themes to Modify the Help Window.
