A Help Entry Editor

Editing help file entries has always been a pain, mainly because it’s always been a huge unorganized text file that has to be edited by hand.

I spent about an hour and a half building a simple help file editing application today. It will load/save help files, allow searching and browsing of entries, and of course, editing.

It’s nothing fancy, but it does make the task of editing help entries a little easier. It doesn’t have visualization for colorized help screens, but that would be easy enough to add.

Here’s a looksee:
