TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

Just curious....how many of you would say that
RoboHELP is an essential part of your job? How often
do you use it, now, and in the past?
I think I've been led to believe for a long time that
RoboHELP is a vital component of being a technical
writer. I'm starting to wonder though. Just seems
that there are less costly and more efficient methods
