The products under “/Tools” are organized according to a system of filters. We’ve listed some answers to popular questions below. If you find a mistake (e.g., dead link or inaccurate information) please let us know.
SaaS documentation tools (i.e., apps hosted somewhere on the internet that offer authoring and editing capabilities solely in a web browser) render discussions of OS moot – at least for end users. OS becomes relevant for tools either running natively on a given operating system, or for cloud-based tools that you must install locally in a client-server configuration (in which case “web browser” is listed in addition to one or more OS platforms hosting the software).
For example, the server of component content management system Astoria (https://tools.doctoolhub.com/tool/Astoria) can be installed on Mac or Windows, but you use a browser to work with content. So Mac and Windows are listed as platforms, in addition to web browsers.
Another example is ClickHelp (https://tools.doctoolhub.com/tool/ClickHelp), a SaaS-based help authoring tool (HAT). As it’s a SaaS and purely in the cloud, “web browser” is listed as the only platform.
That’s probably correct – it wouldn’t be feasible to provide an exhaustive list of features for each tool, but rather the ones most relevant for techcom. However if you think that a critical feature should be a listed, then drop us a line.
The product listing on the “Tools” page uses its own search engine (Algolia search).
We focus on file formats in which technical documentation is typically published, such as markup or print formats.
Great! Just send us the product’s name and some details.
Click on “/Tools” in the menu, then type an asterisk * in the search bar.
