Any HAT you look for to single-source effectively to multiple Help
files and do print is going to run you about the same as RoboHelp,
give or take. They are all competitively priced, and you can find
deals if you look or have old software to upgrade from (direct or
competitively). But the time (cost) they save you far outweighs the
cost of the product itself.
