"I want to say how pleased I am with your software! I generated a 147 topic help file with 50 BMPs and 15 SHGs in about 12 hours! Thank you for making software that lives up to your promises - I couldn't be more pleased! (As a QA Analyst, I don't bestow such praises lightly! : ))"
"I have been using Hotspot Builder for a year or so. It has saved me countless hours of effort. Capturing screens or dialogues is trivial. Adding links is easy. But the most invaluable feature is the color conversions it performs. Everything is captured in 24-bit color and stepped down to 256 color to save space. It is difficult to tell that the color depth has been reduced. Microsoft tools have a terrible time making these changes. Thanks."
"I just registered Help Development Studio and Hotspot Builder after a while of testing it (and other products as well). Congratulations to the programmer(s) - this is really a fantastic tool for me, programming from time to time small VBA applications for specific Excel files and distributing it to my friends."
