Very useful alternative for Apple users working with EPIC Systems

The data dictionary for EPIC can be read with this application.

Epic has a broad market share, but unfortunately much of its technical documentation is written with proprietary Microsoft tools. Adobe RoboHelp software for Windows is designed for developing Help systems, e-learning content, policies and procedures, and knowledge bases with this same format. It costs US$ 999 for a full license or US$ 29 for a subscription. Like much of specialized publishing, end users can get soaked financially, so until major corporations do more to foster platform independence, solutions like this one is a huge contribution.

This software tool performs a valuable function very economically.

It did what I needed it to do

There was a Windows only app that I wanted to use, and it came with a help file. Wineskin worked well enough for the executable but the help did not work. I gave CHM? a try and it was able to read the file without any issue, with all of the navigation points working. It was a small file, and it did what I needed.


CHM opening and navigation work for me, including up to a CHM of 171 MB. Contents are displayed in sidebar, when present. Search works but the current page does not display matches until you navigate back-and-forth. Each successive page will highlight the search term. Global search (i.e. find all matches throughout the CHM file) works on a smaller CHM file but did not seem to work on the very large file.

Happy with this. Will continue using it unless I find something better.
