I have finished the beta version of a program for online help developers.
It helps you to track topics in a help project, including jumps,
graphics, popups, and such. You can import/export projects, which allows
you to share projects in a multi-developer environment. You can create
print files which you can import into a word processor and
modify/sort/filter.

I have corresponded with one member of the list, who started using the
program today. He has recommended the following additions. I want to get
feedback from anyone who uses it before I begin making the modifications.

Possible additional aspects to track:
* macros
* between-file jumps
* status (new topic, first draft written, first draft reviewed, etc.)
* search words
* media (launches to demos, tutorials, wizards, etc.)
* context-sensitive links (dialog, control, ID, when last updated)
* assigned to (owner of project)
* browse sequence
* build tags
* source file name

Possible additional functionality:
* automatic parsing of RTF files
* automated testing of context-sensitive links
* printing (rather than needing to export to a word processor)
* filtering topics to print

You can download this program (2.7 Mb) from
http://www.crl.com/~techwrtr. Choose "Delphi Samples."

If you have questions, please email me.
