Video: How to create a PDF document with HelpSmith

In this video we would like to demonstrate how you can use HelpSmith to create a PDF document. In fact, the process of creating a PDF file is very similar to creating a help file: you should add topics, write content, add also link topics with some keywords to provide the Index page.

Thanks to the native PDF engine integrated into HelpSmith, after the compilation you get a full-featured PDF document which supports font embedding, compression, and encryption options.

Of course, as a multi-format help authoring tool, HelpSmith allows you to create a PDF document directly from the help project you use for compiling a help file or web help system.
