VSdocman uses special files called templates to generate its output. A template defines the format of this output. VSdocman comes with some predefined templates for generating documentation in the following formats:

CHM

HTML

docx - OOXML format used in MS Word 2007 and higher

MS Help Viewer - help used in VS 2010 and higher

Help2 - help used in VS 2002-2008

XML

These templates are files with .vbdt extension and are located in VSdocman\Templates folder by default.

However, you can define your own template to customize the output. It is possible to define almost any text based document. A simple macro language was developed that enables you to change the output settings.
