Demonstration of Author-it Assist
Author-it Assist enables content creators to add context sensitive help links to their documentation with out involving any third parties (such a developers). Launched at the STC conference last month this is an interesting piece of software that should raise the curiosity of all technical writers / information developers. As a standalone piece of software it can be used with all help authoring tools, such as Flare, RoboHelp and Doc-to-Help, but tightly integrates with Author-it’s own CMS software.
A discussion on the pros and cons of such a tool will follow.
