We are glad to announce the release of HelpNDoc 6.5, a major update of the popular help authoring tool which can be downloaded completely free for personal use and evaluation purposes. This update features a refreshed modern user interface inspired by the latest Microsoft Office suite, a brand new search field to rapidly find and run any command available in HelpNDoc, an enhanced template editor to easily define video tags for HTML based documentation formats, as well as many other enhancements and bug fixes.
The recent release of HelpNDoc 6.4 includes an enhanced single page HTML template with the ability to optionally add a table of contents to the produced single page HTML documentation. We obviously used HelpNDoc’s powerful template editor to modify the single page template and we thought it might be a good idea to document this process for learning purposes. Follow the steps described in this article to learn how you can create and alter HTML-based documentation templates using HelpNDoc’s build-in tools.

Tired of manually updating the properties of newly created topics in your documentation projects ? Download the brand new HelpNDoc version 6.1 to be able to define the default properties to apply to new topics once and for all (such as icon, status, visibility…), thus eliminating a tedious and error-prone task and create better organized help files and manuals. This major update can also optionally load “HTML code” library items from the hard drive and export the whole content of a folder in your library.
HelpNDoc 6.0 added support for topic status, which greatly simplifies the maintenance of documentation projects for technical authors: topics can be tagged as being “Out of Date”, “In Progress”, “Needs Review”, “Complete” or any custom status you define. You might be tempted to leverage that feature to update an old project and change the status of all your topics to “Needs Review” to start reviewing them one by one. But individually updating every topic in a big project will be time consuming.
The 6th major version of HelpNDoc is now available to everyone and we are excited to share what’s new with this incredible update of the popular help authoring tool. But first of all, download your copy right now as HelpNDoc 6 is still completely free and fully functional for personal use and evaluation purposes. This major update includes tons of enhancements and new features such as the ability to define custom properties and status for topics, an enhanced find and replace dialog where you can locate library items or using regular expressions, a new find panel for all lists where you can filter elements, better documentation generation and import, and much much more.
