Document! X delivers the best of both worlds by seamlessly combining automatic documentation of Web Services (SOAP and REST) with a full WYSIWYG authoring environment. The generated Web Service documentation forms a comprehensive documentation set for your Web Services covering resource groups, operations, requests, responses and parameters.

Document! X can use a variety of definition sources — WSDL, WADL, Swagger, WCF REST Help Pages — to automatically determine the structure of your Web Service, or you can add an empty Web Service to the project and define the structure manually.

Content Authoring Options

If you have already defined descriptions in your source Web Service Definition (WSDL Annotations, Swagger Descriptions etc.), Document! X can use them as summary text for the generated documentation and you can view the Web Service Definition Descriptions while you are editing to spot areas that need expansion and to avoid duplication.

You can choose to author content in your Web Service Definition (WSDL Annotations, Swagger Descriptions etc.), and/or using the rich authoring environment of the Document! X Content File editor. This flexibility allows you to include basic documentation in the source code and use the rich Document! X Content File Editor to author extended content.

Authoring Examples

The easy-to-use Example Code Designer included in the Content Editors makes adding multi-language examples a breeze. In-line or linked examples can be created and example code is automatically colorized in the generated output.


Document! X supports several different languages (English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, and Russian) for the phrases used in the generated output. All of the phrases and terminology in the generated output can be configured according to preference.

Document! X allows you to author content for multiple languages within a single project, showing you an embedded tip for the primary locale content when you are authoring in the Content File Editor for a secondary locale. If you use the Document! X and HelpStudio bundle you can export and import your localized content in XLIFF format, the industry standard for sharing content with translation providers.
