My last 2 captive jobs involved using Robohelp. Since I began
contracting, 3 of the four contracts involved its use. It was certainly

It was actually rather easy to learn the basics, and I've learned the
more intricate things over time. It's not only a good thing to know, it
can actually be downright fun to use.
