Dr.Explain 4.11.858


Dr.Explain offers a standard interface that includes a lot of buttons and menus. The interface of the program is not very adjustable, because you can switch on and off Toolbars and Status bar. Also you can split and change the language of the application, but this is not done from the main window of the app. If you want to use Dr.Explain in any other language than English, you can select it from a list that is given to you during the installation process. The other available languages are Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Swedish.

Basic Operations

Dr.Explain includes some additional utilities, like a validation tool, a compacting tool, an export sitemap and an export sitemap index. The best feature of the application is that you can create the Help files into HTML, CHM, RTF and PDF formats. The previews for these formats are accessible from tabbed panes that are a part of the window that opens when you start a new project. From the Content Editor pane you can edit the text and change its format and also you can include hyperlinks and import images. There are many other instruments that help to define this program as very capable.


Dr.Explain adds a watermark on the free image, but it gives you almost every tool that you will need for the creation of Help files. The app can create these Help files in several formats and also it can edit text and import images for the proper explanation of the functions of the applications that you develop. If you want to use this very capable program for commercial purposes you should buy it from the developer and the watermark will be removed.
