Hi all,

My co. is interested in the best method for converting "continually updated"
Word docs into CHM. I have experimented with RoboHelp and Flare and
discovered that while Flare has far more more conversion settings and
control, the resulting image quality is poorer. I know this is due to the
images having been resized and embedded in Word but there is no plan to
recreate and recapture the hundreds of existing screen shots of the
software. RoboHelp on the other hand does not maintain the numbering of
screen capture captions (titles).

Does anyone know how to solve either of these 2 problems or even to suggest
another reliable tool for Word to chm conversion?
