Dr.Explain 2.6: Save Development Time By Automating Help File Creation

Indigo Byte Systems has released Dr.Explain v. 2.6, a unique Windows tool that lets software developers drastically reduce the time required to produce professional help files. Using Dr.Explain's unique technology, the program automates the creation of CHM files, HTML help, online manuals, and printable documentation.

New features in v. 2.6 include stronger recognition of Delphi and other programming languages' controls, separation of the design and properties functions, enhanced filtering of keywords, and many other enhancements.

Dr.Explain has eliminated much of the drudgery of editing screenshots and formatting text. Dr.Explain captures screens from your live application, analyzes them, and makes stunning screenshots. Each screenshot contains numbered references to all Windows buttons, edit fields, radio buttons, dropdown lists, toolbars, trees, and other controls. In addition, Dr.Explain creates a numbered paragraph for each of these numbered controls. Simply add text to each numbered paragraph, and you'll have everything that you need for professional help files in CHM or HTML format, as well as RTF documentation files that can be printed or loaded online.

Dr.Explain continues to save time and money throughout your software's life cycle. When a new version of your program results in changes to your Windows screens, simply replace the screenshot and add new control references. Dr.Explain keeps your documentation in a single project file, and makes it easy to make modifications.

By creating custom documentation templates, you can fully customize your help files and other documentation. Dr.Explain gives you control over the appearance of the visual elements, the structure of the menus, and the page layout.

Dr.Explain takes the pain out of creating documentation. By automating the process, the creation of manuals, user guides, and help files becomes an enjoyable part of the software development job. The savings in time and tedium on a single development project will pay for the software many times over.

Dr.Explain v. 2.6 runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista. It processes the applications made with all major Windows and web development environments, including Visual Studio C/C++/C#/.NET/MFC/WTL/WinForms, Visual BASIC, Delphi, and Clarion. Dr.Explain costs $125(US) for a single-user Regular License. The single-user Advanced License costs $165(US), and includes validation and compacting tools, command line support, menu auto-capturing, print versions of HTML pages, and pop-up tooltips on screenshots. Multi-user discounts are available. You can download a free trial version from the company's web site -
