Hi All

Can anyone advise if I can use Adobe's Tech Comm Suite as a content management system in which I have a family of user manuals that share some common content while the rest is unique?
I know I can do what I want in Madcap where I can build say 100 topics within one project and then use TOC holders to use various topics in various documents. Some topics may appear in every document while others are specific to just one manual.

I know that Flare, Help and Manual, and Author-IT are contenders, but as a newcomer to these Adobe applications I can't see that Framemaker, Robohelp quite fit this bill - am I right guys? - or do I need to look deeper?

Thanks in advance
