LOL, a lot can change in the world of software and features in six years!

I last used RH in 2006, so my judgment on that might be a bit old. The different lies in multiple outputs. Around my work, someone always wants it in Word. Flare does it. RH was recalcicrant.

I know that. But I found Craig's recommendation, which mentions that both handle WebHelp well, was a bit confusing. Really, if they both handle it well, then what does he see as the difference?

RoboHelp offers Word format as an output option. Seem's it's always
offered that format. It does require that Word is installed in order
to offer that option. I'm not sure if Flare has the same requirements.

If your output is primarily WebHelp, then RoboHelp is the better

By the same token, if your output is PDF, WORD and WebHelp, then
MadCap Flare is the better selection.
So, if you're not single-sourcing, buy RoboHelp, but if you are
single-sourcing buy Flare? Why not just go with Flare, because
sooner or later you KNOW someone is going to ask "Can you give that
to me in Word format?"
