You should really give Flare a shot. Install the 30-day trial, import
the RoboHelp source, and let MadCap's support show whether they're
better than Adobe's. Their docs could be better, but they're
comprehensive and up to date.

I had to dig pretty deep into RoboHelp at my last job to fix problems
with source control and CSH calls that were incorrectly done on both
docs and dev sides. Adobe's ability to improve and maintain it is
limited by a lot of legacy code that produces horribly messy source.
Flare's source is a lot cleaner.
