It is the preferred software program for help authors, technical writers, and programmers who are tasked with authoring help systems, whether they are desktop or web based applications. Now this course is targeted to users who are new to RoboHelp in general as well as those who may be new to Adobe's latest rendition of RoboHelp HTML version 9.

We'll begin with the basics like touring the user interface and learning about workspaces, pods, and environments before we get into creating and exploring the various types of projects one can create with RoboHelp. Then it's on to more advanced topics that will familiarize you with the various components, content and formatting of your projects. So, with so many topics to cover, let's get started.
