Is there an alternate method to using the editor in Robohelp?

Do most users of Robohelp 2017 use the built in editor? After using Microsoft Word and Publisher for all my documentation, I find the Robohelp editor to be very antiquated. 

 

Thank you for your response.

Like the Source view or the authoring environment? Many people use other tools for editing the output HTML, but not for authoring.

RoboHelp 2019 New UI is very different but you need to keep in mind what you are writing goes in online help. The code created by RoboHelp in source view is very different to what Word and Publisher produce. Neither of them would understand build tags, for example.

 

Horse for courses comes to mind.

I still write a lot in Word, copy/paste to Notepad, and then into RH. 

RH for me is mostly for setting up the online help, pdfs etc.
