AuthorIT Version 5

At last week’s Online Help Conference Europe 2007, AuthorIT’s Austrian distributors demonstrated AuthorIT version 5 and AuthorIT Xtend. These were officially released this week.

Verison 5 has a new UI (similar to the latest versions of Word and Outlook) and additional capabilities for controlling the published outputs.

They also demonstrated Xtend, which suggests reusable content while you type. If someone has already created the content you’re writing about, then it will flag this up. It’s a useful feature if you have a team of authors contributing content, a big library of content, or translated topic that you want to reuse. It’s not cheap, however.

Author-it are running a series of free 2 hour Webinars on version 5 and Xtend:

Wednesday 3rd October
