How to Import a MadCap Flare Project Into ProProfs Knowledge Base

Step 1: Export your MadCap help as HTML. Flare allows output to several types, including DotNet Help, HTML Help, WebHelp, WebHelp AIR, WebHelp Mobile, and WebHelp Plus. Make sure you output your site as HTML Help.


Step 2: Select all the files you wish to zip. Right-click on any file (ensure all files are selected) and click Compress to ZIP file.


A new folder with a zipper image will appear in the same area (i.e., the desktop or folder in which you saved the original item). This is your new zip file/folder.


Don’t get confused with the file name. The zip folder will have the file name on which you right-clicked to compress by default. You can rename it as per your liking.


Step 3: Continue from Step 3 in this article to complete the import process.


Note: You should delete any files or directories related to the MadCap site's skin.


That is all about importing a MadCap Flare project into ProProfs Knowledge Base.
