The Brand

Help Essentials is the idea of two technical authors – Jonathan Smith and Willam van Weelden. Both are experienced in technical communication and RoboHelp and have worked extensively with Adobe in creating elegant solutions with RoboHelp and other authoring applications.

Many authors (including Jonathan and Willam) are inspired to develop their own extensions or customisations. This desire to push the boundaries and extend the capabilities of online documentation is at the core of Help Essentials. The site offers professionally designed assets to help your RoboHelp powered documentation stand out in the crowd. With fresh ideas and resources, Help Essentials is the go to marketplace for technical authoring professionals looking for custom skins, layouts, and scripts.
