Dr.Explain 2.0: Software Documentation Tool for Developers Who Value Time

INDIGO BYTE SYSTEMS today announces the release of Dr.Explain 2.0, the newest version of a help authoring tool for rapid creation of help files and user guides. Using its unique auto capture and annotation technology, developers can document their software interfaces almost hands down. When set to work, Dr.Explain parses a live application and automatically produces screenshots of its windows along with a sequence of callouts for each window control. Users only have to add some description to each callout as needed. Dr.Explain can output the results as a set of HTML pages, CHM help file or RTF document complete with screenshots, cross-references, menus and an index page. The output is accurate and professional.

Dr.Explain is ideal for software developers, ISV, micro ISV and technical writers. It handles all the complexities of help formatting and generation, allowing them to concentrate on pure writing. This saves them days that would otherwise be wasted. Dr.Explain is also great to keep help documentation in sync with software updates. Since all data is stored in a single source file, developers can easily edit or update any portion of an existing file. In doing this, they are not required to rearrange the entire help or generate a new file. Developers will also benefit from the opportunity to customize the appearance of their help file to make it match their corporate style. They can customize its visual elements, menus and page layout. On top of all this is an affordable price, only $125, which is lower than with the majority of other software documentation tools.

What's New in Version 2.0?

Version 2.0 continues INDIGO's quest for perfection and comes with an exciting array of different enhancements and additions. Customers will be able to create help documentation of any level of complexity thanks to the new multi-tier document structure. Now pages in a help file may have hyperlinks in descriptions, which is great for creating cross-references. If you often find yourself making typos, version 2.0 will help eliminate them with its new spell checking facility. There are also new visual themes to adjust the document look, custom CSS setup to apply your corporate style to the document and an intellectual orientation of bullets to organize them in the best way on the help page. Unlike the previous release, version 2.0 can parse standard toolbars, so that they can be captured and documented too.
