Getting Help with Help: Authoring Tools

Many people feel that the process of creating the RTF topic file in Microsoft Word (or using another word processor) is tedious and difficult. Fortunately, several third-party tools are on the market to assist you with this process.

RoboHELP is one of the more popular help-authoring tools. Available from Blue Sky Software, this excellent tool adds user-friendly toolbars, menu commands, and dialog boxes to Microsoft Word, significantly easing the process of creating the RTF file. Creating the footnotes and jumps as well as adding graphics to the RTF file becomes a matter of pointing and clicking. RoboHELP also facilitates the process of building help into your application by automatically creating and maintaining the Help project and map files for you!
