Using trial of RH2020 (upgrade from 2017) and it is ... unintuitive and somewhat buggy. Couple of questions/notes based on my experience so far.

 

1) Related Topics - Where are they in the user interface Standard Toolbar? They appear to have ported over from an upgraded topic, but I don't see any RELATED TOPICS icon in the toolbar. Goes Glossary > See Also > Microcontent.

 

I see mention of "Related Topics" in the help and in posts in this forum, but damned if I can figure out where the icon is to create new related topics.

 

2) What is it with combining lists and paragraph styles? Say I create an ordered or bulleted list - when I apply a paragraph style TO that list, I get double-paragraphs between each list entry (instead of a single paragraph) in the Author UI. It does appear that you should be applying formatting to the list (not the paragraph), but I'm having trouble aligning the left margin/indent.

 

3) What is it with upgrades? I click on Help > Check for Updates, and I get the Creative Cloud Desktop updated (have a subscription). RoboHelp is not even listed as an application in CC. Not sure if this is just because it is a trial, although I intend to get the subscription just to keep up-to-date with the software.

 

4) In general - it crashes. A lot.
