Christine Jesensky asked for guidance on converting Help to docs.

Christine, are your source files in Word? Perhaps you could use the
Outline view to display and print a list of your headers as they exist
in your documents currently. You could manipulate that list to develop
one for the print docs, then use Outline again to move the sections
(topics) into the order you need. Once the related material is grouped
together, you should easily be able to eliminate redundant text and
write new transitional material.

Hope this helps!
