Perfect DocuMaster uses the PDF Format for Software Help Content and User Manuals
soft Xpansion has released Perfect DocuMaster which includes the two programs Perfect PDF 6 Office and Perfect DocuReader 6.
Perfect DocuReader 6 enables users to display the help file of a program or a manual as a PDF file, including the possibility to conveniently show a specific page when opening the file. Opening a specific page means that those parts of the help file may be explicitly displayed that explain the corresponding part of the program.
TEAMWORK IN THREE STEPS: MICROSOFT WORD, PERFECT PDF 6 OFFICE AND PERFECT DOCUREADER 6
Writing help files and user manuals with Microsoft Word means using one of the most powerful word processing programs available today. Word offers many features for the creation and editing of text and images than the programs that save help content in the usual formats, namely CHM or HLP. Apart from that, users will be able to avoid the known disadvantages of these formats.
The second step is to convert finished documents into a PDF file, using Perfect PDF 6 Office. The program converts Microsoft Office files and objects (from Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook) into PDF, including metadata, that is for example links, the table of contents, bookmarks, form fields and controls, comments or the index. After that, users have the help content or manual on hand in todayŽs standard format for electronic document exchange. Perfect PDF 6 Office converts more types of metadata and provides more functionality than the PDF conversion features that come with Microsoft Office.
Finally, Perfect DocuReader 6 may be used to display the PDF help file or user manual. Unlike other PDF viewers, the program makes it possible to automatically call a specific page of a document once the user of the application opens the PDF. Moreover, installation of Perfect DocuReader 6 on the users, computers is not necessary.
