HelpStudio provides you with an effortless way to create great help systems, which means that anyone who can use a word processor or HTML editor will be comfortable authoring help with HelpStudio. HelpStudio has been carefully designed to maximize your productivity whilst not requiring any knowledge of the technical aspects of help file compilation. You get to concentrate on pure content creation, saving time and money on every project. Find and Replace, Spell check and Hyperlink verification can be run on the entire project, ensuring that your help systems need never ship with spelling errors or broken links. Build flags (conditional content) can be used to mark content, files or table of contents nodes in order to create multiple versions of a help system (perhaps a 'Lite' and a 'Professional' version) from the same project. The features don't stop there. Additional tools include an image editor, integrated screen capture, a unique user interface screenshot markup tool, a popup help designer and help context id mapping Add-in for Visual Basic, integrated task management, a customizable content helper library (for automating the creation of common help content) all add up to the only Help Authoring toolset you will ever need. The HelpStudio user interface is intuitive and full of time saving and productivity features. Creating the Table of Contents, Glossary, Index Keywords, See Also Links, capturing screenshots and designing PDF booklets are all fully integrated and simply achieved using a few clicks or drag and drop.
