Overview
Author, publish and track help systems (online manuals). Combine sets of documents into multi-topic searchable online help systems.

Use Google Docs to author your help systems, then publish to the Google Cloud.
End users access the help via the Bjorn's HELP-viewer web app. 

Use advanced features such as conditional text and index.

Apply a stylesheet to all topics, making sure that for example all headings look the same.

Break larger documents into smaller topics.

Quickly reuse content by using and managing your library of small snippet documents.

Convert footnotes in each document to sidenotes.

Include text that frequently changes and appears often in your documents as variables.

Variables are also useful for providing information that is updated automatically, such as the current date or time.

They also enable "single sourcing" - using the same set of source documents to generate different versions of a help system.    

"Conditional text" is content within source documents that is meant to appear in some renditions of help system, but not other renditions (single sourcing).

For example, a writer can produce Mac and Windows versions of the same manual by marking Mac-specific content as "Mac only" and Windows-specific content as 
"Windows only." Everything that is not marked for one platform or the other, appears in the manuals for both platforms.
