Current Plans: Non-Scrolling Area

Another feature we are now working on is support for the non-scrolling area. The non-scrolling area is a view mode which is supported by HTML Help. It usually includes the topic title and any other quick information or links which are not scrolled together with the topic body. This is really useful for electronic help systems or e-books.

Unlike other help authoring tools which use a separate editor control on the top of the topic to imitate the non-scrolling area in design-time, HelpSmith will have native support for that possibility. It will look and work much better as the user will be able to set/unset the non-scrolling area easily by selecting a part of text and clicking a button on the toolbar (absolutely the same way as when you want to make the text bold or italic, for example).
