I use it very often and it has many powerful & useful functions.
Ugly interface is the main problem with small & not clear icons, menu too complicated, drawing/text functions far from intuitive use (need a learning period).
In summary, it'is very good, but mainly for power user.
I know that this software is aimed to write manuals, but I use the free version (from many years) to write personal abstracts (study,...) and the final document (having a clear and visual separation among sections) it's MUCH more clean & easy to create, maintain and use as reference than a wordlibreoffice document with index page.
Formatting is not advanced as a word processor, but it's more than enough for normal use; it's possible to insert images and has many other options (icon sections,...) with a good overall speed.
The ONLY LIMIT of the free (non commercial) version are light banner on exporting document in other format (html, doc, PDF...).
NOTE: now I have the latest version (4.8) and IT'S POSSIBLE (since earlier versions) TO EXPORT IN PDF (description in this site IMHO it's wrong) having also index created basing on sections.
In summary, for me it's:
- very good to write abstract for personal use
- easy to use as reference of the final document using the native format (having HelpnDoc installed) or exporting final document as pdf
It has many functions and it's free, but it isn't for occasionally editing.
Needs to read help also to draw a simple line and a learning period for more complex action.
