Thanks, Melissa. A few questions for you.

1) Are you using Flare as an authoring too or simply for output?

2) Which output format(s) are you using?

3) Did you take a Flare training class or learn it on your own?

Thanks,
Michelle

RE: HAT recommendations







I have used both RoboHelp and Flare...started using Flare this past
September after doing what you are doing..asking for opinions on this
list! I LOVE Flare! I am constantly amazing myself with what Flare can do,
and even better, what I can do with Flare! I have found every feature to
be straight forward and easy to use! Also, Madcap is great to work with! I
am sure you will get more detailed recommendations on here, but I will be
short and to the point! I love and highly recommend Flare!

Melissa
