I have to create and link approximately 50 online flowcharts that cover the
flow of information through an accounting/inventory control software
application. At certain decision points, I want the user to be able to click
the flowchart shape and see another flowchart related to the selected
decision. I also want a "More Information" button in most shapes that
displays a popup-type box when clicked.

The flowcharts need to be incorporated into a Robohelp HTLM (version 7) help
file. I don't trust Robohelp, or my HTML skills, enough to try this in

My current plan is to create the flowcharts in Visio to make sure I have the
details correct. Then, I'll import them into Macromedia Director and create
the necessary links and have the flowcharts as a separate executable linked
to the help file.

Does anybody on this list have any experience with interactive flowcharts,
or know where I could see an example?

Thanks for your help
