Adobe RoboHelp is a program used for publishing help, policy, and knowledge base content. It is used by technical writers to create help files for a variety of applications. Unlike many Adobe products, RoboHelp is not part of the Creative Cloud.

RoboHelp gives you the ability to create advanced help documents for a wide range of devices quickly and easily. It provides tools to help with search engine optimization while writing them to improve their ability to be found by searches. RoboHelp also has a responsive HTML5 layout editor and single-click publisher that make it easy to develop help web pages that will look good on computers, smartphones, and tablets.

The collaboration features of RoboHelp make working on a team much simpler. It allows teammates to work together on a project from any location using a shared Dropbox. It also provides source control, restricted file access, and complete documented histories that allows for previous versions to be restored.

If you create a lot of help articles and work in a collaborative environment with teammates, Adobe RoboHelp provides many tools that you might find useful. It is also a great tool for those who are looking to develop for a wide range of users.
