I "feel" badly about their decision to base it on .NET framework

1) it's irretrievably tied to Windoze only

2) it keeps giving me "unhandled exception" errors almost every time I
get slightly careless with selecting or dropping.

I'm kinda tired of re-installing .NET.

Maybe I'm the only person who ever makes a mousing error.

This might be related to what Steve A mentions. Perhaps there's memory
leakage going on. I do tend to have the program open and the current
project up for several days at a time. Even 4GB eventually gets
polluted. (Yes, I do save often...)

Other than that, it does the limited job that I ask of it - creating
stand-alone WebHelp.
