Batch Compile

Clicking on toolbar icons to get output is time-consuming when you need multiple formats at once. That's why Helpinator allows you to create "batches" that consist of several "tasks". Each task allows to compile selected output format with pre-selected language and variable preset and then save it to the specified location.

Helpinator stores batches inside the project.

Batch Compile on the main Toolbar

When you click the drop-down arrow a list of batches saved to the project appears. You can click on a batch in the list to run it instantly.

On-click execution of saved batches

When you click "Batch Compile" icon with a lightning bolt "Batch Compile" dialog appears. It allows to create a batch by adding output tasks to it (double click on desirable output format in the list on the left), set output destination path, language and variable preset.

Outputs are grouped by the purpose of the output format for convenience. To change extended settings of the output double-click the format item in the task list or click "[Settings]" link in the "Settings" column. If the output does not have extended settings then the cell in this column is empty.
