Please note folks: HelpNDoc includes free updates for a full version cycle (for example, 5.8 to 6.8 included), 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 and Qt Help files 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.

Gary Smith In the "Fine Print" section, the statement:

"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free up to the next major version. For versions after that, upgrades will require additional payment, which will be discounted."

seems to contradict the statement at the top:

"HelpNDoc includes free updates for a full version cycle (for example, 5.8 to 6.8 included), and includes a safety period of one year."

and the statement at the bottom of the description:

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

Can the "Fine Print" be corrected or the other two statements changed please?

Regardless of which statements are correct, if there is a discount when the license ends, what is the discount % for future updates?

Thanking you in advance.

John Riche Hi Gary Smith 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 5.8 today, you will receive free updates for one year. And if one year from now version 6.8 hasn't been released, you will continue to receive free updates till version 6.8 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. This is not mandatory or automatic though: if you do not want to receive additional updates, you won't have to do anything.
Currently, the update price is around 45% off the full price.

Best regards,

John, HelpNDoc team.

Alexandre Emeriau Hi,

HTML is supported : "Upload your documentation to any web server for millions of people to see by the click of a button".

Can we have the same thing to deploy to wordpress by the click of a button ?

John Riche Hi Alexandre Emeriau and thank your for your interest in HelpNDoc.

Please know that HelpNDoc generates standard HTML 5 web-sites and you have multiple options to integrate your HTML documentation into a WordPress site:

- You can create your own template to customize the HTML code generated by HelpNDoc so that it closely integrates your existing look and feel. You can learn more about templates from: https://www.helpndoc.com/...lates.html
You can then link to any topic of your documentation as described on the following page: https://www.helpndoc.com/...Lhelp.html

- You could use a WordPress plugin to import the HTML files created by HelpNDoc into your CMS

Best regards,

John, HelpNDoc team.

Alexandre Emeriau Hi John,

Thanks for these informations i were aware of.
This will be useful for others as well.

That being said, my interest, as mentioned, is elsewhere, it's about deployment to wordpress by the click of a button. If you plan to do this one day, i would be among the ones interested.

Gary Smith Item 1:
"Program-wide live spell checker using OpenOffice.org dictionaries."
"Import existing compiled CHM Help files, HTML files and Word documents."
Since the product is OpenOffice "aware" can the program therefore also import OpenOffice documents the same as it can import Word documents?

Item 2:
The program produces HTML output per your website page (https://www.helpndoc.com/...l-websites). Can you please provide some example websites that have been produced using HelpNDoc?

Again, thanking you in advance.

John Riche Gary Smith:

1) Please know that HelpNDoc can import Word Doc, DocX and RTF files (as well as CHM, Epub, and Text files). If you can save your OpenOffice.org documents in one of those formats, you can import them in HelpNDoc

2) Sure, please have a look at HelpNDoc's own documentation available online at: https://www.helpndoc.com/...index.html
It was created using the default HTML template.
Alternatively, here is the same documentation produced using the iPhone specific template (included with HelpNDoc's installation): https://www.helpndoc.com/...pNDoc.html
And another version using the JQuery mobile template (also included): https://www.helpndoc.com/...index.html

Best regards,

John, HelpNDoc team.

HJ B 1. I understand that this application can be used to generate a help file in pdf format (amongst others), and that it can generate a link to an external pdf document. My impression is that the application cannot import a pdf. Am I correct?

2. It would be helpful if your documentation or website had a list of the top ten or fifteen problems that users call into your website about, and their solutions, aside from what is already mentioning in your help manual?

3, Aside from using this application to generate a help system, in various formats, can this application be worthwhile for generating more general pages of a website, although not necessarily as the main website editor?
