Creating Business Documents Is Easier Than Ever

DocuTools 6 integrates directly with Word® to give authors a professional tool for developing business documents like manuals, guides, SOPs, training materials and other documents. DocuTools 6 provides a standard layout, heading systems, tables, lists, reusable content galleries and other features for accelerating and standardizing document production. Designed for individual writers and project teams alike, DocuTools 6 improves document quality, consistency and author productivity. And if you really want to build successful documents, check out our structured writing courses where you'll go way beyond tools, and expand your information design and development skills.

  • Instructor Guides

  • User Manuals
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Policy Statements
  • Header-Footer combinations

  • and others...



Create Your Own Content Galleries,
and Share With Your Team

Save, organize and share your own collections of reusable document parts and templates to improve productivity and standardize your documentation across multiple writers, knowledge workers and project teams.

Using Template Galleries, you can:

  • Quickly save and organize document parts or templates
  • Save document parts as small as a single word or as large as a whole document
  • Save and re-use excel spreadsheets, powerpoint slides and other embeddable Office items
  • Create, name and organize multiple galleries
  • Store your galleries locally, or share them on a network or web location others can load from.

Create Your Own Image Galleries

Save, organize and share reusable graphics, illustrations and icons.

Using Image Galleries, you can:

  • Quickly access built-in icons provided with DocuTools
  • Quickly save and organize your own image collections that you and your team use regularly
  • Save any standard image file (JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP) to a collection
  • Just like Template Galleries, create and organize multiple image galleries
  • Store your image galleries locally, or share them on a network or web location that others can load from.
  • Drop images into your document by simply dragging them from the open gallery



DocuTools 6 gives authors a choice between authoring documents using the legacy stylesheet of DocuTools 5, or using a more modern stylesheet based in the Calibri font family.

Using the Themes Gallery, you can:

  • Select the Theme you want to author in
  • Set the default Theme you want to use anytime you begin a new document
  • Apply a Theme to an existing DocuTools 6 document.
