Built-in PDF engine

Help+Manual comes with a state-of-the-art PDF engine that is built in. You do not need any additional tools to create Adobe PDF manuals. Just press the Publish button.

Concurrent multi-user editing

Help+Manual is the only tool on the market that offers concurrent multi-user editing out of the box, no special database required. In other words, two or more authors can work on the same help project simultaneously.

Help+Manual is pure XML

Help+Manual is a true WYSIWYG XML editor that doesn't require any knowledge of XML or XML coding skills. You work as you would in a familiar word processor like Word, but you also have full access to the XML source if necessary.

Furthermore, the XML source format can be edited with any XML editor. XML is an open industry standard.

Single source, multiple outputs

Single source is much more than publishing the same content 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.

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.
