"...I'm pretty certain that an objective comparison of the two tools
[FrameMaker and RoboHelp, in the new suite]
leads to the conclusion that Adobe did it right -- your source files
should be authored and maintained in FM, which is far superior for the
task, and RH should be an output engine."
Richard, thanks for your valuable input. Workflow does appear to be the
major differentiator in how one views the quality of Adobe's new suite.
If any of you reading this message have experience with the suite, I'd
love to hear your take on its single-sourcing utility. Does it work for
you to keep the content in FrameMaker and output as needed to RoboHelp?
