Hey Guys, I use Adobe InDesign for this job. Great and easy to create a default template. And after edit, you just need export a PDF . ;)

I do all my user guides as both a video and an html file.

Wonderful for cross-linking, cross-referencing etc.

Myself used to do PDFs (in indesign) and tutorials, now I do just video tutorials as it is time consuming to do both. Here is a screenshoot of how the help file looked:

It is only up to you how much creativity and functionality (or not) you want to “invest” in the help file, I see it as a “bussines card” for my clients ( used to).

PS: the text is blured for obvious reasons :-)
