Authoring and Publishing Using Microsoft® Word

Doc-To-Help 6 Icon

When Microsoft® Word is not enough, use Doc-To-Help to turn your Word files into searchable online Help sites, policies & procedures documents and other forms of print-based content. Advanced single-sourcing features such as conditions make it easy to manage large document sets and include information relevant for different audiences and output types.

Unlock Content Stuck in Word and Transform It into Any Output

Turn your Microsoft® Word content into more user-friendly documents by automatically generating table of contents, indexes and more for enhanced search.

Write or Import Your Content

Use Doc-To-Help and Microsoft® Word to write content or import documents you already have. You only need to author a single set of content and Doc-To-Help will automatically publish multiple types of output.

Choose from a List of Outputs

Use up to nine different types of output to publish your content. Conditional tagging features allows you to customize the content for each of the target platforms (e.g. online Help and printed manual) or create multiple versions of one type of output (e.g. Enterprise and Standard editions of Online Help or teacher and student training manuals).

Publish Content Where Your Readers Need It

Each output is professionally designed and is formatted for its platform. These include Help files for desktop software, online Help for the Web, content for mobile devices, eBooks, and printed manuals.
