Dr.Explain 5.0.926

A straightforward and compact application that helps users create help manuals and export them to HTML, PDF, RTF, or CHM file format
Dr.Explain is a professional software application built specifically for helping you design help manuals.

Although it comes packed with many dedicated parameters, the layout is clean and straightforward.

Dr.Explain gives users the possibility to import data from external files (HTML, CHM, XML, HLP, RTF, DOC, or plain text format), perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, remove), as well as undo or redo their actions.

Thanks to its well-organized functions, you can easily add a new title for the help manual, create a table of contents, add new topics, specify the topics order by moving them up or down, as well as rename or delete the selected topic.

Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to perform find and replace operations, insert images (PNG, JPG, GIF, BMP), take screenshots, customize text messages in terms of font, color, and alignment, and embed URLs.

What’s more, you are allowed to create bulleted lists, enable the spell checking option, add a status for each of your topics (not started, in progress, completed, waiting), and preview the help manual in HTML, CHM, or PDF output format directly in the primary panel.

The help manuals can be exported to HTML, PDF, RTF, or CHM file format. Plus, the application comes packed with several dedicated parameters designed to help you customize the layout and size of your documents. For example, you are allowed to edit metadata and specify the page size for the PDF files.

As a conclusion, Dr.Explain bundles useful features for helping you create personalized help manuals with minimum effort.
