At MadCap Software, we’re always looking to give our customers the most advanced and effective tools for creating content, whether you’re a technical writer, HR manager, eLearning specialist, information architect or policy writer. Our latest product release — Doc-To-Help 3 — gives Microsoft® Word™ users a powerful tool to manage and publish content to multiple outputs, all from a single-source.


Doc-To-Help 3 Adds New Features and Enhancements for Improved Word™ Authoring, Workflow and More:

  • Improved Look and Feel – Doc-To-Help has been completely re-branded to fit into the MadCap Software suite of products, including an improved start page to help new users get started.
  • DOC to DOCX File Conversion – This lets authors upgrade older Word documents (DOC files) in a project to the newer DOCX format.
  • Multimedia Enhancements – In previous versions of Doc-To-Help, only .swf was supported. We have expanded multimedia support to include the following formats:
    • HTML5 Videos
    • Windows Media Files
    • QuickTime Movies
    • YouTube Videos
    • Vimeo Videos
  • Support for Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge
  • New Project Templates – The templates that were provided in previous versions have been polished and updated to the .dotm format, and two additional templates have been added.
  • New Variable Types: When adding a new text variable, you can now select one of three types: text, version, or date/time.
  • Page Orientation Option for Specific Pages in Print Output – In previous versions, page orientation (i.e. landscape or portrait) could be set for the entire output. In this version, authors now have the option to specify orientation for pages within a given section break in a Word document.
  • Plus: Additional Usability Enhancements and Improvements
