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.
