Integrating a documentation/help engine with Omnis desktop app

Hi Mayada,

We’ve built our own documentation system because we needed to support 4 languages for each topic.

We started it in Omnis 7, first for labels then for help topics. 

But we still have enormous Word documents to move into the system or to rewrite from scratch with new version of the software.

It’s now a mixed solution: Omnis fat client for editing and ultra-thin html templates for searching/reading.

We don’t allow users to change content because they want to put too much attachments and that creates a small DMS of its own.

Best regards,
