What are you working on?
You need user-friendly documentation for that.
You need a fast, cheap, high-quality solution.
You need Dr.Explain.
Dr.Explain helps you create context-specific help in CHM format and integrate it into your Windows app, written in any programming language:: C++, .Net, C#, VBA, Delphi, etc.
Plus, it’s easy to capture and automatically annotate screenshots from your application windows, saving you hours of work that you would have spent describing the user interface in some other software.
Imagine, too, that the search and index in your online help works completely out of the box. No programming, or worse, installation and configuration of scripts and databases is required. Everything works even on bare free hosting or simply from shared network folders.
PDF, pure or compiled HTML, links to a manual on your website, or all of the above? No problem! Just export your project from Dr.Explain in various formats and use them according to your users’ needs.
Note that all HTML-based formats created in Dr.Explain have an adaptive layout and are convenient for use on mobile devices. Your users will thank you for it.
You’ve probably at least banged out a readme file in MS Word, right?
Still, your software is constantly developing, becoming more and more complicated. The knowledge base is getting more bloated and chaotic. Finally, you have to admit to yourself that a readme file isn’t enough. You want to update your documentation in a snap and quickly deliver the latest version to all end users.
Then use Dr.Explain!
Just import all your existing documentation from various sources and continue working on a single well-structured project; then, you can publish user manuals in the necessary format(s) when required.
Not alone? No problem! You can use multi-user mode to work on a single project!

Dr.Explain is a professional help authoring tool.
Over 15 years of development, we’ve learned just about everything there is to know about help files, user guides, and manuals.

Our developers are highly qualified specialists with IT-specific education and many years of experience in complex business product development.
The quality of our work isn’t measured in certificates, awards, and contests. It’s measured in concrete results for our clients.
The bulk of our technical support is provided directly by the developers. I also personally communicate with our users regularly.
We take all questions seriously, and resolve them all without bureaucracy, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We never stopped working, even during the COVID lockdown.
We greatly value your time, effort, and business.

The only significant limitation of the trial version is that images in your documentation will have watermarks on them.
When you’re totally satisfied with the software — and, more importantly, the results — you can purchase the paid version, and the watermarks will simply disappear after you activate the license.
More detailed information about the license and payment methods is available on the Licensing page.
