MadCap Software is thrilled to announce a new release of MadCap Doc-To-Help. Version 4 adds greater integration with Microsoft® Word, providing enhanced authoring capabilities and functionality. Creating and editing content is easier than ever with all-new dynamic add-in modes that adjusts the Doc-To-Help ribbon based on functionality needs for the document. Builds can now be generated and managed directly from within Word, and new templates for documents such as policies and procedures allow for easy document creation, all out-of-the-box.

What’s New in Doc-To-Help 4?

New Dynamic Add-In Modes: The all-new dynamic add-in modes automatically adjust the Doc-To-Help ribbon based on the functionality needed for the type of document. Now, when you open a project, the ribbon will adjust to one of the following modes:

  • Basic: This mode is used when the document is not included in any Doc-To-Help project, the add-in is disabled, or the add-in cannot find the Doc-To-Help project associated with the document. This mode is also used for final output.
  • Full: This mode is used for all documents included in a Doc-To-Help project.
  • No Features: This mode is used for templates; new, unsaved documents; and documents with an unsupported format.
