Description of Help & Manual 6.2.3
Content management system. Increase your productivity
Help & Manual is a documentation tool and content management system for both single and multi-author editing. While it is as easy to use like a normal word processor, Help & Manual gives you the full power of a true WYSIWYG XML editor. All the tools you need are at your fingertips in a single intuitive environment, and the program handles all the complex, technical aspects of the process for you. Instead of wasting countless hours "programming" your help you can focus all your energy on actually writing your documentation, so that all your working time is productive time.
All the output formats supported by Help & Manual are generated from the same project. This means you only have to edit your help and documentation once. Forget about the nightmare of "converting" your documentation every time you change anything.
Help & Manual´s working environment gives you all the formatting and editing features of a modern word processor, including dynamic styles and complex tables. This is combined with powerful features for generating and editing help and documentation files, including full support for multimedia and complex modular projects.
Your projects are displayed and edited with the same hierarchical tree structure used by all Windows help formats. The editor and content tree view are combined in a single window. Editing topics and manipulating the structure of your projects is fast and intuitive.
Single source is much more than just outputting exactly the same information to different formats. Help & Manual supports conditional and customized output features that enable you to include variant content versions for different output formats and purposes – all in the same project, no post-processing is required.
Help & Manual handles all the complexities of help formatting and generation for you, letting you concentrate on the work of writing. But there is also extensive support for power users and experienced help authors. You can get under the hood and insert your own HTML code, change the code the program uses to generate your projects, manipulate topic and project templates and more.
Help & Manual gives you the best of both worlds.
• Various outputs
• One single source
• All outputs highly customizeable
• PDF manuals with active hyperlinks
• Image and screen shot tools included
Editor's review for Help & Manual
With more and more programs and other processes being developed today to help bring our computer experiences one step further the need for effective help manuals to guide users through various processes and help ensure full usability of various items has become a necessity.
Without effective documentation, for instance, a program may never fully reach its true potential and many users may have their personal experiences suffer because of difficulties in navigating a complex task. Nevertheless, generating effectively organized and properly indexed help documentation can be a tricking business at best many times, with the programming necessary for proper documentation often taking up as much time or more than is necessary to simply write the help documentation needed in the first place.
Recognizing the need for users to have effective information clearly and quickly available at their fingertips Help & Manual was created. Designed with program developers and other designers in mind, Help & Manual allows users to both quickly and easily generate a number of different help documentation styles to match their specific needs at any given time and help ensure that they get their necessary information quickly and effectively out to those who need it most.
In order to make documentation as quick and easy as possible, Help & Manual allows for the importation of information from a wide range of documents including HTML, Winhelp, various text files (including Word documents) and even RoboHelp. It then allows editing to occur directly within its system to negate the need for any other external word processor and effectively export a viable end product in the form of HTML Help, Adobe PDFs, Winhelp, cross-platform Help, Visual Studio Help, eBooks, print manuals and even basic Word documents.
Focusing on allowing for the greatest ease of development possible in documentation generation Help & Manual provides a highly effective intuitive work environment to be created that allows users to have full access to all of the formatting and other tools present in most other mainstream word processors without needing to rely upon external programs for support. When combined with its integrated organizational structuring in a format that is both easy to access and modify this means that users can spend less time focusing on the actual organizational aspects associated with programming help documentation and more time on the actual generation of the content necessary for development.
Even better is that Help & Manual doesn't simply limit development to one individual. If you have a team of technical writers all contributing to a single help manual Help & Manual allows each of them to coordinate their efforts into a single file and ensure that everyone has the most up-to-date information possible at all times in order to avoid overlapping information or causing confusion amongst a team of contributors.
In short, Help & Manual is the best possible solution on the market today for developers to keep their own information up to speed and help ensure that they have the highest quality of information possible delivered in the least amount of time necessary to do so. Get a copy for yourself and see what it can do for you.
