I’ve not made any files that required extremely long help files.. most of my applications are small enough to explain in a txt file ;)

I use Word with this plugin:

I’m pretty sure OpenOffice comes with a “save as pdf” option too.

I use msoffice 2007 word and distribute as a doc. PDF had jagged edges on the font, dunno why.

I use illustrator and indesign. My files are usually designed in Illustrator so I have a lot of source material I can reuse. In the end I want the user to be able to print a manual if needed.
