HelpNDoc is intended to create help documentation for your software products. Likewise, it may come in handy if you need to write manuals and eBooks. It supports exporting to various widely used formats, including CHM, HTML, Word, PDF, ePub, Mobipocket, Kindle book and QT help. The program has a beautiful interface in the style of the latest Office suites. Consequently, it is not more difficult to use than Microsoft Word, except for the part of writing code, which certainly requires some programming skills. Luckily, the product is accompanied by excellent help documentation.
You can create a project from scratch but you can also start by importing an existing CHM file. At this point there are some general data about the project that you need to fill in. Structuring the contents in topics is as easy as creating pages and organizing them in a tree that can have as many branches and nodes as needed. Fortunately, drag-and-drop operations and contextual menus make this process a piece of cake for you. Also, while you create the topics, you can add keywords to automate searches. Next thing to do is feeding your pages with contents. It is a blessing that the program has an integrated spell checker to help you write text more confidently and avoid typos. In addition to standard text, you can insert various types of objects, such as video clips, pictures, sound and image maps, to turn your book into a real multimedia experience. more
