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
Open Office is free and it rocks!
Has export for pdf files.
I use msoffice 2007 word and distribute as a doc. PDF had jagged edges on the font, dunno why.
I made html help files from 1 year ago. I have made an html template for that. It’s pretty cool !
I use word pad. I don’t export to pdf.
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.
I use Dreamweaver and publish as HTML .
