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