Every professional learns and enhances their craft by studying the work of others. Writers read novels, painters study the masters, musicians deconstruct songs. And Help authors look at documentation provided with other applications. Usually just the applications that they happen to have installed. This means that common applications get looked at a lot, but Help systems from smaller companies, and those on other platforms, don't get the exposure they deserve.
Let's change that. Here's a collection of screenshots from over 150 Help books. It can be inspirational, interesting, or disheartening to look at the work of others. Here's your chance to experience it all. Help build this collection by submitting additional screenshots (regardless of platform) via email.
