Doc-To-Help’s HTML5 Editor Offers Improved Editing Experience to Content Authors

To strengthen its position as solution of choice for content authors for delivering information through the Web, mobile devices, online Help, eBooks and print, a new version of Doc-To-Help, a product in the content authoring and publishing tool market, has been launched. Doc-To-Help‘s first release in 2013 enhances the user editing experience and offers the first HTML5 editor along with reviewer commenting.

"Doc-To-Help 2013 makes the life of a content author easy," said Dan Beall, product manager of Doc-To-Help, in a statement. "They may choose to work in Doc-To-Help’s advanced content editor or Microsoft (News Alert) Word and Doc-To-Help formats and publishes it where readers need it most. With 2013’s upgraded editing experience, authors can rest assured that they are working as efficiently as possible.”

With the help of the HTML5 editing feature included in Doc-To-Help 2013, content writers can ensure that their content conforms to the latest standards. Additionally, Doc-To-Help’s editor allows them to automatically create and validates HTML5 content on the fly.

With HTML5, users can publish professional quality output to many types of devices. "By launching our 2013 editor with HTML5 source markup, we have been able to add many useful code editing features," said Beall.

With the newly introduced source code editor, source code can be adjusted behind the content created in Doc-To-Help. New features of the source code editor for the 2013 release include IntelliSense, which shows an auto-complete menu for tags, automatic validation, which ensures that code meets standards, automatic formatting, which makes code more human readable and easier to troubleshoot, collapsible outlining, which provides a more concise view of top-level content, and line numbers, which helps locate specific sections of code.

For content editor users, Doc-To-Help 2013 adds a reviewer commenting feature. This feature works similar to the comments available for use in Google (News Alert) Docs or Microsoft Word and allows reviewers to leave notes for the author.
