I need to decide between using RoboHelp Office 2000 (which we already have)
and ForeHelp for creating all of our software user documentation.
Currently, our Help file is our "central depository" containing the "latest
and greatest" version of our docs. We would like to be able to generate new
WinHelp4 and WebHTML/InterHelp versions fairly often to ship with the latest
software versions and then crank out printed documentation (3 separate
books) every once in a while for major project releases.

I understand that ForeHelp4 now has some "printed document creator" features
(including the ability to flag topic content to be output to the printed
docs only) that seem on paper to meet or even exceed RoboHelp's.

Has anyone tried both products to do this, or evaluated ForeHelp's "export
to print docs" features?
Thanks in advance.
