Editor's review

Every application or website you develop needs to be supported by a comprehensive help documentation that lays out all the technical and procedural assistance to the user. If you are a developer, you must have been spending a lot of time in development of such a help document because your task is not only limited to composing the content but goes way ahead to the core programming tasks. Now this can be a really cumbersome and time consuming task if you start developing the help feature yourself right from the scratch. RoboAuthor v.2009.25.242 is a powerful platform that completely assists you in the development of Help documentation for Windows applications. With this application, you are largely saved from the core development tasks and you can just keep your concentration towards the content of the entire documentation.

RoboAuthor v.2009.25.242 has an intuitive GUI (Graphical User Interface) which provides a complete platform for creating pretty useful Help files where the whole process is free from dependencies on any external editors. The whole task gets more and more visual which is easy to learn and use. The program provides easy features for creating your help files where the output file can be in .HLP or CHM format. With this software, you have the freedom to present your help topic from any language platform like C++, MFS, Delphi, Java, Visual FoxPro, Visual Basic, MS Access, Clarion, APL and many others. The whole documentation is supported by links and intuitive navigational abilities with complete support from keywords list and table of contents.

RoboAuthor v.2009.25.242 provides a perfect platform for creating help files in HLP and CHM formats in a snap. The program especially gains good points on its developer friendly features, leading it to score a nice rating of four and a half points on the scale of five.
