The latest update of Help & Manual Professional. Easy like a word processor, yet much more powerful.
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.
Single source, multi-channel publishing
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.
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. Forget about the nightmare of "converting" your documentation every time you change anything.
Intuitive working environment
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.
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.
Help & Manual Multi-Channel Publishing
Help & Manual publishes all standard Windows help formats, from HTML Help to Webhelp to Visual Studio Help. It also generates Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word files and ePUB e-books, the standard format supported by the Apple iPad.
Windows help formats
Windows HTML Help (.chm) is the platform-specific format for all Windows applications including .Net. Help & Manual creates CHM files as well as MSHC, a special help format for integration into Microsoft VisualStudio.
The Webhelp publishing format includes a table of contents, keyword index and full-text search. Webhelp is context-sensitive and allows seamless integration into your website. This output format can be highly customized and supports jQuery plugins for animations of non-static content.
PDF output and print manuals are fully customizable with the bundled Print Manual Designer program: include a table of contents and a keyword index, automatic page referrers for links and cross-references, customized page layouts, headers, footers, page numbering, covers, introductions and more.
With the Apple iPad, e-books have become mainstream. Help & Manual publishes the the standard ePUB e-book format optimized for iPad, iPhone, the Nook Reader and other e-reading devices. This is a dedicated e-book format for offline reading on e-readers like iPad and iPhone.
Conditional content in single-source projects
Single source is much more than just outputting exactly the same information to different formats. Help & Manual supports multiple table-of-content and build conditions on chapter, topic and text level.
Help projects can include topics and chapters from other help projects and you can edit them in the same way as local topics. Snippets can be retrieved from a central repository and are updated automatically when the repository source changes. Help & Manual integrates multiple projects live. You see at design time how the merged content will look like.
