It's the completely integrated help development environment. Enables you to produce your help files and on-line documentation quickly and easily. You may have used some of the other help authoring tools that require you to type in special codes and use a separately purchased word processors. But when you're using Visual Help, you do not have to worry about all that, and your development time will be cut down from days to just minutes!

The ease of use of Visual Help does not hinder its power, you will be able to access all the professional features of the windows help environment such as content, macros, secondary windows, menu buttons, segmented hyper graphics, and non-scroll regions, all with the ease of click drag and drop. This makes Visual Help the right choice for the advanced users as well as the novice.
The real advantage of Visual Help is its object oriented interface.  This is most evident whenever editing the contents of a particular topic; an area you'll be spending 90% of your time.  Whenever you edit a topic, it is opened in its own special "Design Window" containing its own toolbar and status line.  You can then add paragraphs, headings, bullets, jumps, bitmaps, sound, video, and other objects by dragging them off the toolbox and dropping them onto topic window.
Assign context ID's manually or let Visual Help automatically assign then for you. Also an include file is generated by Visual Help for the programmer to include in a project to reference context IDs in the help file. By defining constants for the context IDs which use the name of the topic, the programmer can avoid problems which arise from changing context ID numbers.
