With an Improved Editing Experience, Users will Realize Productivity Gains in Delivering Content

Doc-To-Help, a trusted name and award-winning product in the content authoring and publishing tool market, plans to announce on Thursday, May 30, the release of Doc-To-Help 2013. The first release of the year will solidify Doc-To-Help’s position as the premier solution for content authors needing to deliver information through the Web, mobile devices, online Help, eBooks, and print. Doc-To-Help 2013 focuses on enhancing the users’ editing experience and features an industry first HTML5 editor along with reviewer commenting.

“Doc-To-Help 2013 makes the life of a content author easy,” said Dan Beall, product manager of Doc-To-Help. “They may choose to work in Doc-To-Help’s advanced content editor or Microsoft Word and Doc-To-Help formats and publishes it where readers need it most. With 2013’s upgraded editing experience, authors can rest assured that they are working as efficiently as possible,” said Beall.

Doc-To-Help 2013’s content editor upgrades include a change to HTML5 source markup. The HTML5 editing feature ensures content conforms to the latest standards and Doc-To-Help’s editor automatically creates and validates HTML5 content on the fly.

HTML5 is a markup language for structuring content and is important to users who need
to publish professional quality output to many types of devices. “By launching our 2013 editor with HTML5 source markup, we have been able to add many useful code editing features,” said Beall.

In the event source code needs to be adjusted behind the content created in Doc-To-Help, the company has introduced a new source code editor. Beall listed standout features of the source code editor for the 2013 release:

IntelliSense - Shows an auto-complete menu for tags.

Automatic validation - Ensures code meets standards.

Automatic formatting - Makes the code more human readable and easier to troubleshoot.

Collapsible outlining - Provides a more concise view of top-level content.

Line numbers – Helps locate specific sections of code.

Doc-To-Help 2013 also adds a reviewer commenting feature for those who use the content editor. This feature works similar to the comments available for use in Google Docs or Microsoft Word and allows reviewers to leave notes for the author.

Beall offered insight into Doc-To-Help’s roadmap, which includes more editing enhancements and several new responsive themes that will be able to optimize output for phones, tablets, and desktops.
