Content, structure, and layout are managed separately in Author-it. All information is saved only once in a database (single source) and can be reused as often as required. You can then use these elements to produce various documents as needed, such as manuals, online helps, Web sites, presentations, and many others, in different formats: PDF, Word documents, WinHelp, HTML Help, JavaHelp, Oracle Help, HTML, XHTML, XML, and DITA.


After the course you will be able to create and manage content using Author-it and generate both online helps and manuals from the content.
