Upgrading from RoboHelp X5, please read…

As the title suggests, this article is primarily for people upgrading from RoboHelp X5 or earlier releases. For those of you who are upgrading directly from RoboHelp X5 to Adobe RoboHelp 7, you should not only look at the new features that we implemented in Adobe RoboHelp 7, but should also look at the features that we implemented in Adobe RoboHelp 6.

There is a lot of information on the Adobe.com on the new features implemented in Adobe RoboHelp 7; however, I believe the Reviewer’s Guide is amongst the best document that describes the functionality in a structured manner. You can access and download the Reviewer’s Guide for Adobe RoboHelp 7 from the following web address:

However, there is little information on Adobe.com on the features that were implemented in the previous release (Adobe RoboHelp 6). Since this product had a very small shelf life, approximately nine months, there is little information about the same on the web too. Hence, I thought it might be useful to share the Reviewer’s Guide for Adobe RoboHelp 6 (Click to DOWNLOAD). When you download, you shall get a zip file that has Demo Assets, Getting Started Guides for Adobe RoboHelp 6 and Adobe RoboHelp Server 6 and the Reviewer’s Guide as Adobe PDF. You shall find Demo Assets useful if you want to follow “Try it” sections in the Reviewer’s Guide.

I hope this blog entry helps you find more reasons to upgrade 🙂
