Well, Cayenne, same situation here. My new job required that I learn
Forehelp and MShelp quickly. Forehelp has proved to be easy to use with the
.hhp files, but with CHM files I use MS help which has an outstanding online
help/tutorial. We no longer use Robohelp, don't know why.

Have just signed on, lots of good information here. I'm in a new job and
learn a help authoring system - quick, if possible. They've been using
called HelpHikes, which there's little or no tutorial/learning info on. We
to upgrade anyway, and I'll have to decide when and to what, but I'm looking
ForeHelp and RoboHelp today. I'm leaning toward ForeHelp, because reviews
it's quick to learn and comes with good tutorials. But also considering
we'll need to be more "industry standard" later.
So, how hard _is_ RoboHelp, in folks' opinions, and what does it have that
ForeHelp hasn't got? I've read reviews, am familiar with the issue of
Word or not, but what else?
