I'd say that it depends a bit on your output. If your output is anything HTML based, RoboHelp HTML hands down. After all, Word does horrible HTML. Why not use something designed with HTML in mind?
If you stick with Word, you aren't doing yourself or anyone else any favors. There are things that Word will do that will frustrate you.
Then again, that's just my opinion. Personally, I would have voted long ago to banish the RoboHelp for Word application.
Thanks for the quick reply :-)
My output will most likely be chm or some other HTML based output and PDF. To be honest for version 7 I've actually only looked at the HTML edition.....but then thought I'd better justify to my boss why I think I should move to HTML.....
....and then I got scared because I'm not sure how to manage the review process using an HTML editor. Maybe that will be another post.
Anyway, thanks for your opinion. I appreciate it.
We create Printed Doc layouts "on-demand" for our review purposes. From Window 2, "Print Document Content," you can select individual topics and/or "books" to include in specific layouts (as well as a title page, TOC, etc. Just delete the layout when you're done, or use it as a template to create other chapter/topic layouts. You can then use Word's track changes facility and just cut&paste any additions (and edits and deletions) recommended by reviewers
Thanks Rick and Leon. Between the two of you my questions have been answered! Cheers.
