Editor's review

HelpScribble 7.7.2 is just the right pick to create help manuals in the easier way. This is a comprehensive and simple tool which allows you create WinHelp (.hlp) files, HTML Help (.chm) files, printed manual or online documentation all using a single HelpScribble project. The built-in editors allow you to write full-featured files in just few seconds. Already using another help authoring tool? Well, you can import the HPJ+RTF files created with the other tool and can reuse it. Creating context-sensitive help files can be made easier with the aid of this smart tool, no matter which development tool you are using. For example, if you are using Borland Delphi or C++Builder, the HelpContext property editor of HelpScribble integrates them efficiently, making assigning Topic ID values to HelpContext properties easier. The main advantage of this HelpScribble 7.7.2 is that it is a stand-alone tool and doesn’t require the support of third party packages like MS Word. However, you will have to download a compiler to use this tool. Scribble away!

Publisher's description

HelpScribble is a full-featured, easy-to-use help authoring tool for creating help files from start to finish. Create WinHelp (.hlp) files, HTML Help (.chm) files, a printed manual and online documentation (on a web site) all from the same HelpScribble project.
Write full-featured help files with the built-in editors for SHG files (hotspot bitmaps), WinHelp macros, contents tree, browse sequences, etc.
If you have previously used another help authoring tool, reuse your work by importing the HPJ+RTF files created with the other tool or by a decompiler.
Use the help files you make with HelpScribble to provide context-sensitive help with your Window applications, no matter which development tool you use. If you use Borland Delphi or C++Builder, you will like the way HelpScribble's HelpContext property editor integrates with them to make assigning Topic ID values to HelpContext properties very easy.
HelpScribble is a stand-alone tool. It does not depend on MS Word or any other third party package. It does need a help compiler that you can download for free from http://www.helpscribble.com/helpcompiler.html
