Try yourself and tell us if it really does what we promise!


The simple software documentation tool to be used by subject matter experts ‘out-of-the-box’ with little or no training and support required to create professionally looking step-by-step reference guides.

Process Capturing

Start screen capturing and go through the workflow – screenshots are produced on every mouse click. Except for screenshots, text description is also automatically captured. You may as well type additional text instructions either in the process of documenting or right after all screenshots are captured.  Not being distracted from the procedure you are documenting, the whole process will take less time than usually. The optimization of the documentation process will free up some time for more enjoyable activities, such as,  for instance, reading our blog!
