Re: What doc formats do readers actualy use? Was, "what doc formats do READERs want ?"
I prefer printed manuals.
I hate the new Microsoft Help in Word 2010. It is totally and absolutely useless. I have gotten more help by doing a Google search than via the Word Help.
Adobe's help, likewise, is increasingly less useable... because everyone is moving from the old fashioned Help. Personally, .CHMs and WebHelp, when designed properly are easy to navigate and very user-friendly... all the bells, whistles and widgets drive me nuts!
<rant rant rant>
But who cares about useability and really helping the user these days?
Certainly not the bottom line.
Good design and good writing cost $$$ and no one wants to pay anymore.
My own two cents worth.
Create and publish documentation through multiple channels with Doc-To-Help.
Choose your authoring formats and get any output you may need. Try
Doc-To-Help, now with MS SharePoint integration, free for 30-days.
