|Help & Manual|
Writing first rate help files doesn't have to be hard!Not with Help & Manual at hand.
You have written a terrific Windows program, so why let yourself fall flat with a poorly designed help file?
Help & Manual is a stand-alone, WYSIWYG help authoring tool that lets you create all types of Standard Windows Help (HTML HELP, Classic Winhelp, soon MS Help 2.0), Browser based help, PDF Documents and printed manuals from a single source.
With its WYSIWYG approach to creating help files and printed manuals, what you see at design time is what you get at run time.
The word-processor-style interface lets you use toolbars and right-click menus to easily create topics and links, enter text and add images. Designing a table of contents, a keyword index or context sensitive help is not an extra task but fully integrated. You create hyperlinks to other topics with a simple drag and drop and test them in design mode.
Help & Manual contains all of the tools needed to create professional hypertext documentation and printed manuals, unlike limited help-authoring tools that force developers to learn obscure rich text file (RTF) tags, or to reformat their help file data to create printed manuals.
Who can use Help & Manual?Help & Manual can be used by network administrators, business people, and anybody who wants to easily create printed manuals or structured HTML documents with hyperlinks. You should be familiar with a word processor. No programming skills or experience in help authoring is required.
Why is Help & Manual different from other tools?Our major goal with Help & Manual was not only to ease the creation of help files using a WYSIWYG design interface but to create various output formats from the same single source.
HTML HELP with many options to customize the output. You can easily apply your own corporate layout to your help files.
Winhelp Classic Winhelp (.HLP) files - even help files for Windows 3.1 - are supported as well. You can create all help formats from the same single source.
Adobe PDFHelp & Manual creates PDF files natively. The user manual in PDF format on the download page was of course created with Help & Manual
MMHELP Electronic books in Windows 32 bit executable format. No installation, no browser, no DLLs, no problems. This e-book format is great for CD rom presentations. Sample e-book (exesample.exe, 890 kb)
MS WORD Microsoft Word export in RTF format is also supported.But the built-in print engine is so good that you rather prefer to print the user manual directly.
Creating help files is as easy as writing a letterAs software developers we know how frustrating it is to create or simply to update help files. What you see is what you get. Help & Manual does what it says it does.
The WYSIWYG interface leaves out all the cryptic references for index pages, hyperlinks, images and text formats like some other help authoring tools! It simply displays it at design time the way it will look at run time. Everything you need is right there at your finger tips.
