It is no more or less essential than Frame. It depends on the
product/service you need to communicate about, what you need to communicate
and to whom. I use Robohelp HTML regularly. It was the tool of choice when
I arrived, but there are others just as robust, and just as quirky. I also
use Demoshield, PowerPoint, and Word to complete the communications projects
I'm assigned.

Learn the tools you need to do the job at hand. A help authoring tool of
some sort is extremely useful, as is word processing, document management,
graphics rendering, publishing, multi-media production, project management,
database and spreadsheet. You just don't need every tool for every project.

Just 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
out there...
