INI and batch files

As you have probably already realized, command lines can get quite long and complex, particularly if you use them to generate multiple output formats to different locations simultaneously. You can solve this problem with configuration files called INI files that contain all the parameters you want to process, including output to as many different formats as you want.

If you combine this with a batch file in the Help+Manual program directory and create a shortcut to this file on your desktop you can automate the entire process and publish to multiple output formats with complex options for each format with a single mouse click.
