Unlock Content Stuck in Microsoft Word and Transform It into Any Output

Write or Import Your Content

Use Doc-to-Help's editor, Microsoft Word or import documents you already have. You only need to author a single set of content and Doc-To-Help will automatically publish multiple types of output.

Choose from a List of Outputs

Use up to nine different types of output to publish your content. Conditional tagging features allows you to customize the content for each of the target platforms (e.g. online Help and printed manual) or create multiple versions of one type of output (e.g. Enterprise and Standard editions of Online Help or teacher and student training manuals).

Publish Content Where Your Readers Need It

Each output is professionally designed and is formatted for its platform. These include Help files for desktop software, online Help for the Web, content for mobile devices, eBooks, and printed manuals.


 

Author in a Familiar Environment Using Word and Use Existing Content

If you love Word, Doc-To-Help is the perfect technical authoring tool for you! Doc-To-Help offers the industry's best support for Word authors. Rather than forcing you to convert Word documents to a different format, we install a toolbar in Word to bring all of Doc-To-Help's features to your editing interface. When you choose Doc-To-Help, your content stays in Word.

  • Use built-in or custom templates
  • Insert video and Doc-To-Help will automatically exclude it from print
  • Margin notes automatically become pop-ups in online outputs
  • Links become cross-references in print outputs and cross-references become links in online outputs
  • Use image maps

Note: Microsoft Word 2010 or newer required
 

Quickly and Easily Create Training Manuals, User Guides, Knowledge Bases and More

Doc-To-Help makes it easy to automate the content creation, management, and publishing process. With Doc-To-Help, you can create:

  • Documentation and User Assistance
  • Policies, Procedures, and Regulations
  • Training Manuals
  • Hardware User Guides and Technical Manuals
  • Support and IT Knowledge Bases
     

Publish to Multiple Outputs Including Responsive Web, PDF, ePub and More

Write Once, Publish Anywhere

Use one of nine types of outputs out-of-the-box or create your own versions. Conditional tagging features allows you to customise the content for each of the target platforms (e.g. online Help and printed manual) or create multiple versions of one type of output (e.g. Enterprise and Standard editions of Online Help or teacher and student training manuals).

Doc-To-Help's Web-based output is responsive (adjusts itself to the device's screen size) and is touchscreen-enabled.

  • Include an advanced search engine in all online outputs
  • Publish online content that conforms to Section 508 standards
  • Choose from 13 languages for the interface (includes right-to-left support)
  • Include Google tools (Translate, Search, Analytics)
  • Easy to deploy
  • Include Mark of the Web

Publish eBooks, PDF, and Press-ready Manuals

Give your readers manuals in the format they want by choosing to create them in EPUB or PDF. Doc-To-Help's EPUB output can display on virtually any reader (even Kindle after an easy conversion to Kindle's mobi file format) while PDFs can be sent straight to press or made available on the Web. Both formats are professionally polished.
 

Leverage Content You Already Have with Easy Importing Features

Doc-To-Help makes it easy to import or convert existing content including Microsoft Word and RoboHelp projects.

Import: Don't waste time with copy and paste. Doc-To-Help will import the Word-based manuals you already have and typically be ready to produce any of its outputs in minutes.

Convert: You can also convert RoboHelp projects, HTML files, HTML Help projects, and WinHelp projects.
 

Choose Professional Built-In Output Themes or Customise Your Own

Choose from a list of professionally designed, built-in themes and interface languages or use Doc-To-Help's visual theme designer to create new themes that match your web site or application look and feel.
 

Streamline Localisation with Multiple-Language Support, Integration with MadCap Lingo

  • Generate output in any Windows-supported language
  • Use Unicode characters
  • Use SharePoint Translation Management Libraries
  • Choose your spell checking language
  • Import Doc-To-Help directly into MadCap Lingo
     

Use Conditional Tags to Map Content to Outputs

Conditional tags allow you to map any type of content to a specific output. For example, you may want to include a video for online output and replace it with a static image for manuals. This feature is also useful for creating student/teacher or internal/external versions of your deliverables. Doc-To-Help also includes automatic conditional content features. Print-based cross-references become links in online outputs, for example. This just scratches the surface. Conditional content technology is the secret sauce that will save you tons of time!
 

Facilitate Source Control and Collaboration

Doc-To-Help gives you technology to help manage content and workflow. Choose between Doc-To-Help's own source control technology, Microsoft SharePoint or Microsoft Team Foundation Server for check in/out features, version history, and review workflows.
 

Save Time by Letting Doc-To-Help Do the Work for You

Doc-To-Help makes it easy to create topics, Table of Contents, breadcrumbs and more.

  • Automatic topic creation
  • Automatic related topic links
  • Automatic Table of Contents
  • Automatic breadcrumbs
  • Automatic glossary links
  • Automatic Index inclusion/exclusion
