HelpNDoc authoring tool
« on: June 14, 2017, 08:57:13 PM »

I have been trying HelNDoc, a commercial authoring tool that is free por personal use:

HelpNDoc is available completely free for personal use and evaluation purposes: you can use the full version of HelpNDoc for as long as you want. All the features are available and enabled, there are no hidden fees or registration process and it doesn't contain any virus, spyware or malware of any kind. The only restriction is that the Personal Edition of HelpNDoc or its generated files can't be used for profit: only personal non-lucrative work and evaluation purposes are permitted by the license.
A discreet banner is added in the generated documentation to remind that it has been created by the Personal Edition of HelpNDoc. To remove the banners and use HelpNDoc for commercial purposes, you might consider ordering a full version of HelpNDoc.

https://www.helpndoc.com/

As it allows to generate html pages for web publishing and adds a search feature, I have tried with an small part of the CWindow frameword to see the results.

See: http://www.jose.it-berater.org/CWindow/CWindowFramework.html

What do you think?

I think it looks awesome :)

I have also been using that help authoring tool. Works great. Much better than the other help tool I used to use.

If you're using it, maybe you know how to solve a little problem I'm having when generating a .chm file. All the fonts are resizing according the DPI of my monitor, except the web page navigation header, that seens to be using 96 DPI. See attached capture.

I am in Tampa, FL right now (just saw U2 play last night... awesome). I will certainly check the files when I get home but maybe it has to do with the template that is used during the generation of the help file. The HTML for the navigation header must be using fixed values for point sizes rather(?)
