I suspect that since RoboHelp is essentially Word with embellishments,
nobody is interested in publishing something specifically about RoboHelp. At
least, I haven't seen anything.

I'd recommend ignoring RoboHelp specifically and reading up on help files in
general, which will include most of what makes RoboHelp hard to use. Jim
Mischel's Developer's Guide to WinHelp is a great geeky book, and
Deaton/Zuback's book on Win95 help is superb for all help purposes, on any
platform. Digest those two books and I'd bet that neither RoboHelp nor any
other help tool will present much of a mystery any longer.
