Hi all,

I'm taking a User Manuals class as a part of my PhD program and
someone mentioned the other day that RoboHelp was "dead," I think
implying that it's either no longer the best tool to create help or
that the product is no longer being updated.

With that in mind, I ask:

Is RoboHelp still the de-facto standard in creating Help files for
both Web and Print? What's today's "tool of choice"?

I hear a lot of rumblings in the academy about open-source tools
supplanting commercial alternatives and wonder whether this is true in

I know it's not a simple question..
