TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Timothy Alton is right that:
- no software tool can substitute for being good at creating Help;
- you can do what it does for yourself in Word if you take the trouble to
figure it out; and
- which tool(s) you use has to do with your style of work.
That being said, RoboHelp is definitely nifty. I think it's great. It puts
a lot of stuff behind the scenes and streamlines a lot of things, but I can
still get at it all directly if I so choose.
