HelpNDoc provides all the tools necessary to write complete help files and documentations — From the table of contents to the final documentation layout, everything is included in HelpNDoc.
HelpNDoc's user interface has been carefully designed to be clear and effective: the various tools are grouped using the popular ribbon design first introduced by Microsoft Office: contextual elements such as picture or table editing operations will only appear when needed thus greatly simplifying the overall experience.
All the necessary tools needed to create great documentations are built right in HelpNDoc: the table of contents editor, WYSIWYG topic editor, keywords editor and library are some of the features provided to ease-up the process of writing amazing documentations and are an integral part of the HelpNDoc environment.
HelpNDoc includes a feature-packed word processor which makes you feel instantly at home: all the major strength you've come to expect from a modern document authoring application such as Microsoft Word are an integral part of HelpNDoc to make the most visually appealing help and documentation easier to create than ever.
All the media elements such as pictures, videos, documents, HTML code snippets and variables are managed by the library: those media elements are reusable as much as needed throughout the documentation project. Need to change one picture ? Just update the library item and it will be propagated to all the topics using it!
Whether you need to create a compiled CHM help file, an on-line full HTML documentation or a printable PDF or Word documentation, HelpNDoc has you covered: write once and export to multiple formats by the click of a button!
Once you have written your documentation, HelpNDoc can automatically generate Microsoft CHM help files, standard HTML documentation pages or a complete Word or PDF document, without any work from your part: HelpNDoc takes care of everything and produces the documentation the way you designed it.
Every single aspects of the documentation output can be tailored to fit your design requirements. As a testimony of how powerful the template system is, HelpNDoc comes with the full source code for templates to generate an on-line HTML documentation or a specific iPhone designed web-site: everything is controlled by the templates.
Microsoft Compiled HTML Help files (*.chm) are bundled with every Windows application to provide technical assistance and user guidance. Microsoft provides the HTML Help Workshop software to create CHM files but it is a very old, complex, buggy and unmaintained piece of software. HelpNDoc works very hard to encapsulate everything for you and it becomes as easy as pushing a button to produce a standard redistributable compiled CHM file.
Bring your documentation to an on-line server for millions of people to see by the click of a button. HelpNDoc will generate the most unbelievable HTML documents based on template instructions: Want a frame based documentation ? A full featured Web 2.0 web-site ? Need a commenting or notation system ? Perhaps add a special header or footer ? Just instruct HelpNDoc to do so and it will gladly comply.
If you need to integrate your documentation with existing Microsoft Word documents or further tailor it, HelpNDoc has you covered: it contains a generator able to produce Microsoft Word compatible and editable documents from the exact same input you added in HelpNDoc.
HelpNDoc knows how to generate PDF documentation and does it very well by providing amazing control over the process: choose the compression and encryption level, define user permissions, font embedding settings as well as Adobe Reader's viewer layout right within HelpNDoc.
HelpNDoc's template system is so powerful that we've been able to provide a complete iPhone documentation template bundled by default. This makes it possible to generate amazing iPhone web-sites and documentation pages without any extra work from your part: the template takes care of everything including respecting Apple's guidelines in term of iPhone application look and feel. The generated documentation will look like a native iPhone application and will benefit from all of the iPhone's features including full touch-screen support.
Benefit from the quality and quantity of the OpenOffice.org dictionaries right within HelpNDoc: the live spell checker will instantly notify you if a spelling error is found anywhere that matters: the table of contents, topic contents, keywords, library items... are some of the places where the live spell checker gets your back.
HelpNDoc's library system is so powerful that it can either include the items inside the project, or dynamically at generation time. This means that any picture, movie or document can be inserted right into your topics when generated thus allowing more flexibility about the content of your documentations.
Variables are place-holders for textual content which you can place anywhere in your documentation. The place-holder will be replaced at generation time by the actual value of the variable. Don't know how your next application will be called when released ? Just add a variable named "Application Name" througout your documentation and change its value when the final name has been chosen.
Nothing is more tedious than going through all the documentation topics to find and replace the one little text that has changed. HelpNDoc greatly simplifies that process by being able to replace any textual item by a library item: this means texts, pictures, movies, variables, HTML code snippets or documents will replace your searched text automatically in a second.
HelpNDoc will automatically generate source code to easily associate help IDs and context numbers for various programming languages including: C/C++ (constants, defines, enums), Delphi/Pascal, Fortran 90/95, Power Basic (constants, enumerations, enumerations singular) and Visual Basic (constants, enums).
Leverage the powerful template engine to add support for your own programming language: a few simple lines of code will instruct HelpNDoc on how you'd like it to be generated. HelpNDoc will understand your template and generate the required files for you. There is almost no limit with HelpNDoc's template engine.
