It's a funny thing about help authoring software - the tools that we use to write the help documentation have generally not evolved at the same pace as the stuff we're documenting. So, as the software that we're explaining gets more and more complicated, we're still stuck with the same tools that require us to map out our topics, figure out what's important, dissect each screenshot, and so on. With complex applications, you end up spending most of your time researching and less time writing.

What if I told you that there's help authoring software that will write help documentation for you? That all you needed to do was to introduce this app to your software interface, and the app would automatically create topics that you could simply flesh out?

Dr. Explain is an automated help authoring tool that produces your choice of output formats - CHM, HTML, online manuals, and even printed documentation. Dr. Explain analyzes the structure of your software's screens and forms and automatically generates numbered annotations for each GUI element - every button, icon, field, menu, and toolbar. As the help author, your job just got a lot easier. All you need to do is add the descriptive text to each annotation to explain each function. Dr. Explain condenses hours of work into just a few minutes!

Dr. Explain will astound you with its flexibility. The output files that are produced by Dr. Explain can easily be invoked by a variety of programming languages such asC, C++, Visual Basic, C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, WinForms, WPF, Delphi & Object Pascal, Clarion, FoxPro, PHP, Perl, HTML, and JavaScript, to name just a few!

This promotion includes the following:
Dr.Explain Regular License v6.x ($250)
Dr.Explain Advanced License v6.x ($350)
Dr.Explain Ultima License v6.x ($450)

Mike Murphy Are you only allowed to install this on one computer even though you are the only user?

Paul User I'm thinking of purchasing this software but the developer does not seem responsive :(

I note Mike Murphy is still awaiting an answer to his query a few days ago.

This does not bode well should support be required in the future.

I may pass :(

Dennis Crane Hello Paul,

I'm sorry for the delay. It's my personal fault, not by our team. Our helpdesk at is very responsive though.

Dennis Crane Mike,

I'm sorry for the late response.
If you are the only user of the Dr.Explain and there is no concurrent use of the software then you can use one license on both computers, eg. PC+laptop.
Mike Murphy Can you create a keyword index with page numbers at the end of a manual so users can easily find what they are looking for?

Dennis Crane Mike,

A keyword index is currently supported in online manuals and in CHM help file as Index tab in navigation menu.
Printable manuals in PDF format have only Table of Contents. Likely, we'll implement Index in printable manuals as well in future releases as it's a demanded feature.
Mike Murphy Thanks for the info. On the 2 computer scenario, if I purchase a new computer, can I de-activate the license on one of my computers and move it to the new one and re-register it?

Dennis Crane Mike, yes. You can transfer the license.
soo mi Dennis, et. al.:

Can DE work with images (e.g., PNG or JPG, or a PPT slide), so that, for example, a manufacturing system (e.g., guages on a machine/unit process)? or business process can be more easily documented? Or is DE limited to interpreting HTML-type inputs?

Dennis Crane Soo Mi,

I'm afraid I don't understand your case exactly. You can insert images into the content and annotate them. I think you mean something more specific.
You can send us ( ) a message with your case description and we'll discuss how DE could help you regrading this matter.
