XML Export / Import
This is probably the most eagerly-awaited function ever. You can now export
your entire project to a special XML format that can be translated or edited
in an external XML editor or XML-aware translation tool and then re-imported
to Help & Manual with all formatting and project features intact.
Note that you can only import XML files created with Help & Manual. This
is a closed, round-trip function and you currently cannot import any other XML
formats like Darwin or DocBook!
New XML Source Code editor
The Help & Manual editor pane now includes a third tab called XML Source.
This is a full-featured XML editor with syntax highlighting that allows you to
view and edit the current topic in XML format.
Project Synchronization tool
This new tool is designed for translation projects. It enables you to
"synchronize" the updated version of a project in the original
language with the old translated version in a different language. The tool
then updates the structure of project with the new material so that a
translator can produce a new version.
Quick help index search
A search tool in the toolbar now allows you to search in the Help & Manual
online help index without opening the help first.
Zoom factor for precise image resizing
You can now resize images precisely in the editor by entering a percentage
