Subject: Authoring Tool for Online Help
I have an assignment to create online help describing GUI for our new product line. The outputs will be a printable version of online help and context-sensitive pop-up windows. The printable version needs to have GUI images, but CSH does not. I am the only person in the tech pub department. At the present time I am selecting an authoring tool. I know that MadCap Flare will be able to meet my needs and I have Flare in my computer. Any other authoring tools suggestions? Is there any reason that I should not use Flare? Will appreciate your input.
