Adobe RoboHelp

Previous versions of RoboHelp have all had a specific name, RoboHelp 2015, RoboHelp 2017 and RoboHelp 2019 in recent years.

Adobe introduced a new user interface in Adobe RoboHelp 2019. From that version onward, it will be known only as Adobe RoboHelp.

There will, of course, still be major releases and new features with updates in between but these will be identified by their version number rather than by their name. Going forward Adobe RoboHelp will be licensed on a subscription only model and the subscription will include all updates as they are released.

These topics will be updated from time to time but may not always be in sync with the latest product update. It is currently synced with 2020.4.

What's In Adobe RoboHelp?

The new and changed features in Adobe RoboHelp are highlighted in What's in Adobe RoboHelp and explained in this tour.

Users upgrading from a Classic version, you should also see the 2019 pages here.

If you have not used the new UI yet, take a look at Beth Gerber of Lightext's webinar Building Blocks for Creating Consistent and Engaging Help Systems. The focus is on how to do just that but Beth also works with the new UI giving you some insight into working with it.

Upgrading from 2019 to 2020

If you are upgrading from Adobe RoboHelp 2019 New UI to 2020, before you start work note the Import Settings option on the Starter Page. It allows you to import your settings into 2020.
