RoboHelp 11 and Tech Comm Suite 5 Recorded Webinar TV Guide

We held our Launch webinar for both RoboHelp 11 and Tech Comm Suite 5 on February 6th; the session had high attendance and a very engaged audience with many technical questions.

We recorded this webinar which you can view at your convenience. The entire webinar is about 90 minutes long, so we have created a “TV Guide” timeline, which will let you know how far into the recording to advance to view specific features. The webinar is a combination of summary slides and “live” demos, which you will find highly useful.
