The following links go to vendors of authoring tools and utilities that I know about - if your company
is not here and should be, please email me the url and a short description of your product(s).
Where have all the authoring systems gone? I just checked my links here and many of them are no longer
- New help authoring system for Linux.
ForeFront - ForeHelp and ForeHTML are the best standalone authoring tools for WinHelp and HTML
Help. ForeHelp was voted Best WinHelp Authoring Tool at the 1999 WinWriters Walden Awards and has won
several other awards since then. Sadly, ForeFront ceased operation in January 2002. InterHelp was sold
Systems - Doc-To-Help is one of the original help authoring tools, and is exceptional at creating
help from well-formed Word documents. In 2001, WexTech sold Doc-To-Help to Component
One so they could focus on AnswerWorks.
Solutions Ltd. - EasyHelp & EasyHTML are powerful Word-based authoring tools.
Software - HyperText Studio is an easy-to-use tool for producing WinHelp and HTML Help systems.
Virtual Media - Apparently gone the way of the dinosaur - web site no longer available.
StateLine Software - Also gone the way of the dinosaur.
- About to become a dinosaur, I'm afraid. The company was sold to Macromedia, who laid off the developers
- a sure sign the product is near death. Latest rumor is that Macromedia will be acquired by Adobe, who
will then deliver the final death blow.
The following links are to products I have either not used or have not used recently enought to make comments
HelpLinker 2000 - Also gone - web site is for sale
Inc. - HTML Indexer
Software - Help & Manual
VivaTexte - Turned into ePrep learning development system
