Hi!

Our group is (finally) moving towards producing Windows help as part of
our software products, and I have been looking into tools for that
purpose. It looks to me like Robohelp is the most popular, but I'm a
little leery of them since they won't give me a demo version to try out
and they're pretty expensive to buy sight unseen. I have downloaded demo
versions of Forehelp and HelpBreeze (which I thought looked pretty
good).

My questions are

1. If you use a help tool, which do you use and do you like it?
2. If you have used more than one tool, which did you prefer?
3. Is Robohelp really the best, or just the most popular?
4. Is it better to use a tool, or just code the help without one?

Any information you could give me would be GREATLY appreciated!

TIA,

Nora
