Documentation, the Easy Way

Help Builder is a documentation creation tool for end users and developers alike. Focused on easy content creation, Help Builder provides a productive work flow using a text optimized editor using the popular Markdown editing format. Simply type your text and easily add topic cross links, external Web links, images, screen captures, tables and other text markup using either Markdown syntax or our toolbar options.

Help Builder can be used for documentation, but it's also a great tool for creating reference documentation, FAQs, free form text or notes storage, and even things like code snippets. It's a great way to organize and search free form text and recover it later. When you're done creating content simply upload your content to your Web site using FTP, or create a CHM help file, Word or PDF document if you want to share your content.

For developers Help Builder supports embedding syntax colored code samples for a variety of languages and markup formats, importing from a variety of sources like classes, databases and entire libraries for full featured development or component documentation. Imported content can be further ammended to provide the best of automated reference documentation plus important user guidance on how to use your products or tools.
