I have been tasked to created an on-line user's guide. I was
told that RoboHelp would do what I need. However, I'm not sure
exactly what I need. The system that I will document is a GUI that
is on a Linux machine. I'll have install RoboHelp on a Windows
machine, create the document using RobHelp and then move the
document over to the Linux machine? The user's of the GUI wont have
access to the Windows machine at all. There's so much information,
where should I start?
Welcome to our community as well as welcome to the wacky
world of help authoring.
Well, we would love it if you were to choose RoboHelp as your
Help Authoring Tool (HAT). But you really should do some
investigating. If you had asked this question on the HATT list (An
E-Mail list devoted to Help Authoring Tools and Techniques) you
would have been steered toward something called the "HAT Matrix".
You may veiw that by

So go ahead and check it out. I'm confident that you will
find RoboHelp stands on its own merits.
