Feature Release

Help and Manual is an advanced multi format help authoring tool that provides all the formatting and editing features of a modern word processor. You can output your projects to all standard Windows help formats (HTML Help, Winhelp and MS Help 2.0 / Visual Studio Help), browser-based Help, PDF and Word RTF. All output formats supported by Help & Manual are generated from the same project, you only have to edit your help and documentation once. Help & Manual Professional (XML Edition) Edition includes advanced features like Unicode Support or export/import help projects in XML format. Help & Manual is fully compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bits).

The following editions are available:

Updates in 5.6

  • Improved Robohelp import: some file and topic links in Robohelp were not correctly resolved, keyword index was not read from particular older RH projects.
  • PDF export: high Unicode characters with standard fonts (e.g. Arial) are exported as glyphs to avoid display problems on non-Unicode systems.
  • Paragraph dialog: when pressing Enter in numeric entry fields, the last value entered was not applied.
