ComponentOne Doc-To-Help® is packed with features Product Details

ComponentOne Doc-To-Help® is packed with features to streamline the mechanics of Help authoring so you can focus on content, not production! This section provides an overview of those features, and ends with a recap of what's new for Doc-To-Help 2000 and True Help™ 1.0 users.

Single-source authoring
Create HTML Help, cross-platform HTML Help, WinHelp, JavaHelp™, and print documentation from a single set of Word documents—there's no need to purchase separate editions! Plus, ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 is Microsoft Help 2.0 ready! Porting your Help system to a different platform is as simple as selecting a list item and clicking a button.

Styles and templates
ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 generates Help systems from the styles you use to format the source documents, so document mark-up is greatly reduced. Plus, you're not limited to using specific document templates or style sets—use your own style conventions or use the templates we include with ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0. And you Doc-To-Help 2000 users will love the fact that you can put text in Heading 1, which now has the same functionality as any other heading style!

Database architecture
ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0's unique project architecture stores the relationships among styles, topics, index keywords, and table of contents entries in a per-project database, automatically generating index entries, hyperlink tags, jumps and pop-ups, etc. You can also share information among multiple projects!

Intuitive user interface and Word toolbar
ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 has a redesigned "all-in-one" interface that puts full functionality at your fingertips, not hidden in a maze of dialogs. We've also included a Word toolbar that allows you to incorporate many Help authoring functions, such as margin notes, dynamic links, and conditional text in your source documents.

Project editor
With the project editor, you can perform a wide range of Help authoring tasks (such as in-place editing and topic filtering and sorting) from within one interface, making editing source documents and setting the properties of Help targets very convenient! The project editor's Project Icon is an interface for defining and modifying most of your Help project.

Enhanced graphics
You don't need to scale an image in a graphics package before adding it to your document—simply use the Insert Picture and Format Picture options within Microsoft Word! You can also easily create hot spots with graphics.

Flexible conditional text
Need to provide links to related topics in the online Help, but omit them from your printed manual? These and related scenarios are no problem because ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 gives you all the benefits of single-source authoring, plus the ability to designate portions of your source documents for individual platforms, Help targets, or attributes (author-defined criteria).

Margin notes
Adding margin notes is as easy as clicking the Insert Margin Note button on the ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 toolbar and entering the desired text. You can also make those margin notes appear in the online Help as pop-ups by clicking the Link to Margin Note button when the text is entered.

Links, jumps, pop-ups, and more
ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 makes it a snap to add topic links and jumps, pop-up topics, dynamic links (A-links and K-links), and cross-references.

Glossary terms
Creating glossaries is easy! An empty glossary is automatically prepared when you create a new project. Simply open the glossary document and enter text as desired. During compilation, project documents are searched for text that matches glossary entries and those matches are converted into hypertext links.

Enhanced indexing
As your source documents are compiled, topic hierarchy information and any existing XE field data are extracted and saved to the project database. You can then easily attach index keywords to topics and just push a button to rebuild the project and update its index.

Scripting
If you're a programmer, ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 even allows you to use Microsoft Visual Basic® scripts to customize the behavior of individual styles at compile time!

Modular help projects
Unlike multi-file projects, in which several Word document files in the same folder are compiled together into one Help file, modular Help projects consist of documents in different folders that are part of different Help projects, and are compiled into different Help files that appear as one file to users. ComponentOne Doc-To-Help 6.0 makes it easy to retain the same high-quality Windows Help and HTML Help systems as you would with a single project!

Conversion utility
Easily convert your existing Doc-To-Help 2000 projects with the click of a button! True Help 1.0 files are automatically read and do not require conversion to open existing projects.

Useful reports
You can organize your large projects with reports that show contents, index, script, style, and topic information. You can also have hierarchical data views, such as reports showing topics with keywords and vice versa. All reports are offered in online and hard copy formats.
