HELP & MANUAL: The writer-friendly help authoring suite

We created Help & Manual because we were unable to find any help
authoring tool that satisfied us as technical writers and software
developers. The result is a package thats easy to learn and use,
gives us all the support we need for maximum efficiency and leaves us
full freedom to customize everything.

Ease of use without dumbing down

As writers, we want it all: We want to get documentation out fast
without struggling with our tools when were on a deadline, and we
also want to be able to tweak everything that touches our fancy when
we have the time. Novice authors, advanced technical writers, busy
coders and corporate documentation managers all feel equally at home
in Help & Manual.

The bottom line is the bottom line You get it all in one package. The
up-front price includes our famous support, maintenance for all minor
upgrades and the full suite of help authoring tools, with an
unconditional thirty-day money-back guarantee. What you see is what
you get, and what you get is everything you need.

The best way to skin a manual

If you use Webhelp and CHM youre going to love our Premium Pack
skins. You can roll your own if you want, but with the Premium Pack
you get professional design and power literally at the touch of a
button. You dont have to change your own project at all you just
select a Premium Pack skin when you publish and Help & Manual does all
the rest. In addition to a slick layout with tabbed navigation,
features include an automatic topic TOCs, advanced popups, sortable
tables, email feedback and more. Check it out here.
