> Hello!
Our project team is considering switching from an online help system
(RoboHELP) to an online manual using PDFs. Because the users are not
technical and prefer a book format, we think an online guide would be a good
solution. (Despite the training class, the feedback is that nobody uses the
online help. It's just one more software they need to learn how to use.)

> Thanks!
