I am currently researching whether it is worth us upgrading
to RH8 from version 7 and was wondering what the community experts
thought of the new version?
In particular, I am interested in finding out about the new
Adobe AIR output format. From what I have read AIR seems to be like
a cross between chm and webhelp formats which are the two layouts I
use all of the time. Can AIR use MapIDs and context-sensitive help?
Are there any extra install requirements for end users if I publish
to AIR? What has your initial impression been of this format?
Any other hints/tips I can tell my boss about when putting
forward the case of whether or not we should upgrade would also be
AIR help output supports MapIDs as well as Context sensitive
help. It has support for commenting as well as Favorites where in
user can add there own favorites links and can refer them later on.
Soon AIR is going to be ubiquitous just like Flash player,
but till the time, end user need to install AIR runtime for running
AIR applications. Installing AIR runtime is a one time process, and
it is free download, you can go to Adobe Site to download AIR.
I would suggest you to try the RH8 trial version once to get
the feel of AIR help output.
