Help & Manual Basic

Help & Manual is a documentation tool and content management system. All publishing formats supported by Help & Manual are generated from the same project. This means you only have to edit your help and documentation once. Help+Manual publishes all standard Windows help formats, from HTML Help to Webhelp to Visual Studio Help. It also generates Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word documents and ePUB e-books - the standard format supported by the Apple iPad - as well as Amazon Kindle.

Help and Manual Basic Features

  • WYSIWYG XML Editor - Help & Manual is a WYSIWYG XML editor that feels like Word. You don't need to know anything about XML to work with it.
  • Tabbed Editors - Open multiple topics simultaneously in tabs to edit them comfortably side by side.
  • Uncompressed XML data sources - Help+Manual uses uncompressed XML as project file format. The XML data source can be translated with external translation tools. It can also be created and maintained by 3rd party applications...
