Please note folks: HelpNDoc includes free updates for a full version cycle (for example, 4.8 to 5.8), and includes a safety period of one year.

Sometimes you just want to get down to the nitty-gritty task of writing help documentation without the hassle of dealing with expensive, complicated help authoring software packages with steep learning curves.

If this is you, then you need to get yourself a copy of HelpNDoc. It's easy to use, intuitive, and it generates compiled HTML files, Word documents, PDF documentation, web content, iPhone websites as well as ePub and Kindle eBooks from a single source!

HelpNDoc looks and feels like your typical word processing application -- you use the WYSIWYG interface to type up your documentation, apply formatting, change fonts -- everything that you're used to doing in Microsoft Word. The magic happens when you hit the 'Generate Help' button. HelpNDoc does all of the hard work for you, producing a fully functional compiled HTML help file, Word and PDF documentation or iPhone websites -- ready to use, right off the rack. And what's more, HelpNDoc requires absolutely no complex technical understanding of HTML coding!

Even if you are HTML proficient, HelpNDoc has you covered. In addition to producing self-contained compiled HTML help (CHM) files, you can also export individual help topics as HTML files for use in your website. HelpNDoc also includes a powerful template system where every single aspect of the documentation output can be customized: the possibilities are endless!

Please Note: A HelpNDoc license includes at least one year of free updates and continues as long as a full version cycle hasn't been reached.

John Riche Hello Nelson and thank you for your interest in HelpNDoc.
Please know that once you order HelpNDoc, you receive free updates for at least one year and it will go on as long as a full version cycle hasn't been reached. As an example, if you order HelpNDoc 4.8 today, you will receive free updates for one year. And if one year from now version 5.8 hasn't been released, you will continue to receive free updates till version 5.8 included. Any version you've downloaded during your free update policy can be used as long as you'd like without any limitation. After your free update policy is over, you can choose to purchase an update at a discounted price to continue to receive new versions of HelpNDoc. Currently, the update price is around 45% off the original price.
Best regards,
John, HelpNDoc team.

Bertie Brummel This may be a stupid question: Is HelpNDoc able to do the job vice versa?
I want to convert a complex HTML online manual that includes hundreds of sub-links to *.pdf or another common printable format (doc, docx or similar) automatically?

I know there are tools like 7-PDF but one has to access, then process each site
separately. Very time-consuming.

Thanks!

John Riche Hello Bertie and thank you for your interest in HelpNDoc.
Please know that HelpNDoc can import existing CHM, HTML, ePub and Word Doc, DocX and RTF documents, as well as folders (and their sub-folders) containing multiple files of those formats.
The best format to import is the CHM format as the whole table of contents will be imported in your project.
Your HTML files can be imported at once into HelpNDoc but you will need to manually recreate the table of contents.
Best regards,
John, HelpNDoc team.

Jack Las Did you ever add the ability to embed files (by the library, "include file at generation time"), other than a doc, html, rtf and txt? I wrote a request long ago on this subject. I would like to embed source code file, which is a text file, but it has a different extension. Please add this functionality!

John Riche Hello Jack and thank you for your suggestion. Please know that this is not implemented yet but as a work-around, you could change the file extension to TXT.
Best regards,
John, HelpNDoc team.

Jack Las No, no, this is not the solution. It is very tedious. The files are part of the source code (our applications), including the declaration of interfaces. I generate every few days the documentation for developers, I can't every time rename dozens of files to txt and after save documentation changed extension back to .pas. It does not make sense. Why you don't understand me?

Importing the files like .pas, .inc, .cs, .c or others it is a simple matter for you. Import these files are NO DIFFERENT from the import txt file!

John Riche Jack, please know that we do understand your specific requirement but we need to make sure it is implemented the best way possible: you might be interested to treat unknown extensions as text files but another user might want to treat them differently. HelpNDoc currently uses the file extension to know which importer to use and simply falling back to text file import when we do not recognize the extension might not be the best idea.
Also, please know that there are alternatives such as creating a batch file to rename the files, duplicate them or create a symbolic link with a .txt extension. Then run that batch file prior to importing them into HelpNDoc.
Best regards,
John, HelpNDoc team.
