With Help+Manual, you have a documentation tool that is as easy to use as a word processor, yet much more powerful! The learning curve is short. While it is as easy to use like Word, Help+Manual gives you the full power of a true WYSIWYG XML editor.
There is no real need for day-long training classes (though we offer them, too). Help+Manual puts all tools that you need for writing documentation at your fingertips.
Focus all your energy on writing and immediately get productive!
This is combined with powerful features for generating and editing help and documentation files, including full support for multimedia and complex modular projects.
One Source, Multi-Channel Output
Whether you publish documentation for desktop or mobile, iOS or Android, Windows help or PDF user manuals, it is always a breeze with Help+Manual!
But single source is much more than just outputting the same information to different formats. Mark content with conditional tags to create different outputs for each publishing channel - no post-processing is required.
Help+Manual handles the complexities of documentation generation for you. Power users, however, can get under the hood and manipulate topic and layout templates and more. Help+Manual gives you the best of both worlds.
Power Features for Power Users
Help+Manual is much more than a help authoring and documentation software, it is a full suite of tools. Everything you need is included in the price, along with free support.

Premium Pack 3.3 Update
Together with Help+Manual 7.3 we have also released version 3.30 of the Premium Pack add-on. This update brings a major improvement to the Premium Pack Toolbox utility, adding a powerful new feature called Normalize Project Styles. This new tool can save you many hours of manual work when importing formatted text from HTML and CHM.
Version 3.30 of Toolbox also includes a feature for transferring your personal configuration from an old skin to a new one. You can select from ten different settings groups with previews to copy exactly what you need to an updated skin.
In a maintenance update to the skins themselves, a number of issues reported by users have been corrected. The formatting of drop-down menus in the CHM skins has been improved. All WebHelp skins now have an option for removing the 'Score/Hits' line below each search result.
