Help & Manual Professional

Help & Manual is a documentation tool and content management system for both single and multi-author editing. 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.

I’ve been using Help+Manual for probably 13 years or more doing software training and production process documentation. I have really enjoyed using your product all these years, this is the fourth company I’ve introduced to Help+Manual. Thank you for such a solid product and great support.

We've just upgraded from a previous version which we have used for years. Does everything we want it to - easy to use, clear and well designed.
