THE ULTIMATE USER EXPERIENCE IS INSIDE DOC-TO-HELP 2009 V2

Technical Communicators and Content Authors will Enjoy Many
New Convenient Features in 2009 v2 Release

Pittsburgh, PA March 5, 2009 - The award-winning industry
leader in the Help authoring tool market, Doc-To-Help, is
making life easier for technical communicators and content
authors with the release of Doc-To-Help 2009 v2. Improved
document import/management, editor enhancements, and
streamlined project management make Doc-To-Help easy to use
and learn.

Doc-To-Help 2009 enables technical communicators, policy
writers, and other content creators to author in
Doc-To-Help's XML-based editor, Microsoft Word, or HTML,
(with new or existing documents) and publish to the Web,
Help systems, or printed manuals with a single click. Unlike
other companies who force users to buy multiple tools to get
your job done, Doc-To-Help bundles all its features into one
self-contained product. The benefits are a diminished
learning curve plus time and cost savings.

Doc-To-Help continues to evolve aggressively, mostly in
response to user demands, which is why it is the preferred
tool, said Dan Beall, Doc-To-Help product manager. The
initial release of Doc-To-Help 2009 added a ribbon interface
and an XML-based editor, which were very significant
technology upgrades. Our focus is to continue to deliver the
industrys most trusted product with the powerful
functionality users demand.

New User Guidance

The project creation process is now automated with the
Getting Started Wizard. Whether a user wants to start a
project from scratch or import existing documents, this
wizard walks through the process, step-by-step.

Document Import and Management

Today's release of Doc-To-Help 2009 v2 offers users the
option of importing multiple documents at once, rather than
importing them one at a time. Additionally, Doc-To-Help will
automatically add the documents to the correct project
folder. Doc-To-Help can also convert multiple documents to
XHTML with a single click.

Editor Enhancements

The built-in editor, introduced in Doc-To-Help 2009, is
designed to give authors an experience that allows them to
focus on doing what they do best: write the content they
need to produce.

Doc-To-Help 2009 v2 will now check your spelling as you type
in 21 different languages. When creating hyperlinks, you can
choose the appropriate target window. A Word-like style
gallery makes style selection and editing simple and
organizes style sheets logically.

Streamlined Project Management

The demand to make content and project management more
efficient was the driving force behind Doc-To-Help 2009 v2
new project wizard, enhanced file management, and updated
ribbons. The new project wizard allows the user to automate
the project creation process, while the enhanced file
management organizes project files in a convenient My
Doc-To-Help Projects folder. The ribbon enhancements make
it easier to choose and build outputs.

Pricing and Availability

ComponentOne offers the full version of Doc-To-Help for
$900.00 per user. Those who purchase Platinum support will
receive free updates, product enhancements, and new products
during its term. You may purchase ComponentOne Doc-To-Help
online at www.doctohelp.com or by telephone (800.858.2739 or
412.681.4343).
