Help File Programs

Programs that have the ability to create help files in a variety of formats.

-----------------------------------------------

Help CreatorShalom Helpmaker
  • Name: Shalom Helpmaker
  • URL: http://www.danish-sh...dk/soft/shelpm/
  • Price ($ USD): Free
  • File Types: Windows Help
  • Other Information: The limitations are so far beyond anything I\'ve hit yet. I did a help file that, when printed out filled 65 pages at 10 point font. It will only accept .bmp for the graphics. You can not change the font or font size. There is no spell checking but you can always create it in a word processing program, spell check then copy and paste your text into Shalom Helpmaker. Easy to use and creates a professional looking help file for your games. Take the time to learn how to use this, it isn\'t that difficult. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a Windows style help file with the little purple book icon.
