In late 2003, eHelp Corporation unveiled RoboHelp for FrameMaker, a tool that single sources FrameMaker books with unrivalled speed and efficiency, and complete preservation of all the elements in FrameMaker documents. RHF, as we fans call it, is a supra-intelligent, speedy tool that interacts in real time with FrameMaker and is far superior to its competition, WebWorks Publisher.

Anthony Olivier, Senior Vice President, Macromedia announced the demise of RHF on July 30, 2004. Those of us with maintenance plans can upgrade free to RoboHelp x5, which will never offer similar integration with FrameMaker.

A dedicated group called the RHF Mutineers wants Macromedia to reinstate RoboHelp for FrameMaker or allow someone to purchase it and give it the new home it deserves. Microsoft and its Solution Partners have a vested interest in discontinuing products like RHF. Please dont let it happen.

The RHF Mutineers need the support of everyone who has ever tried to convert large FrameMaker projects into online help. We need you to:
