I am using the Adobe Creative Suite for my documentation and for what I
need it works great since my documents are very graphic intensive. I
use InDesign for all my documents and convert them PDF for our website
and break one of the InDesign documents into HTML for other parts of the
website. =20

I have one rather large document (approx. 100 pages) and yes, I would
like to use FrameMaker for this document but it is just not possible.
However, I have been told to create a Help system from this 100 page
document. =20

The question is can I create a help system without too many steps? I
have searched the web and not found any software that creates anything
from InDesign files. I will still need to create a PDF version of the
document AND the look and feel must be the same as the other documents I
create so I cannot write this document in Word. =20

I have found that you can import PDF files into RoboHelp and this may be
a solution for me. Does anyone use RoboHelp this way? =20
