Survey: Which Help Authoring Tools Do You Use? 

18th November 2011 Posted in Blog, Technical Writers, Technology & Tools 0 Comments

NOTE: Poll Issues

We’ve been seeing some issues with the poll. If you aren’t able to vote, try taking the poll from the blog’s home page at: instead of attempting to take the poll while viewing this post.

Much has changed in the past 5 years or so. MadCap Flare grew in popularity while interest in FrameMaker and RoboHelp seems to have dropped off a bit. Or is that a misperception?

Here’s a chance for technical writers, information developers and others who author help content to chime in. Which tools are you using?

At the top of the left column of our blog you’ll see the Help Authoring Tools poll. We’d like to know which tools you’re using on a regular basis right now – not what you’ve used in the past.

Perhaps you’re not using any of these tools at all. Maybe you’re using an XML tool or some other way to handle help file deliverables we haven’t considered. If that’s the case, we’d love to hear what’s going on with you and find out which tools you use most, which tools you love and which you hate. So once you’ve taken the poll, chime in with a comment on this post and let’s get a conversation going.

What help authoring tools are you using? Please take the poll at the top of the left column of our blog. Then, please leave a comment on this post with anything you’d like to share about the tools you’re using and the trends you’re seeing in help development.
