Hi all,

I've pulled down a trial of RoboHelp 7 and find that it's very slow
even with a single project and a couple of topics. Building a CHM file
takes a couple of minutes. I have dual-core centrino with 2gb of RAM
so my PC *seems* okay.

Is there a less-resource-intensive help maker that can generate CHM
files? I've tried HelpScribble and HelpBreeze, but their UI's are
terrible and unusable.

Or -- is there a way to tame RoboHelp?
