context-sensitive; that is, when you're six levels deep in a dialog
box and click the help button, you can't easily go directly to the
relevant part of the PDF file, though you _can_ easily do this with
online help (whether WinHelp or HTMLHelp).
There is only one tool that lets you link context sensitive PDF or any
other source file to a rumtime application. In fact you don't need the
application source code, and you can even create context sensitive PDF to
Word97 or almost any application.
Check my web site at www.tds.co.il/ESMMI/esmmi.htm
You can use the external topic option to link to a PDF.
If you need a user's guide please send me an email.
MMhelper creates context sensitive help without the need for resources from
the source code or to recompile.
