HelpSmith provides you with the possibility to setup compilation tasks which makes it possible for you to compile your help project into multiple output formats or to generate different versions of the same help file with a single click.


Using the Task Manager, you can add any number of compilation tasks and define settings for each task, such as the output format, destination filename, and build tags. In addition, a compilation task allows you to override the default topic template, and text variables that are defined on the help project-level.
