What is a .HMXZ file?

The .HMXZ file extension is used for a type of file known as a Help & Manual Compressed Project. This kind of file is created by a specific program called Help & Manual, which is designed for making technical documentation. When you create help documentation, like guides or manuals for software, you might use text, images, and various formatting to make the information clear and easy to understand. The .HMXZ file contains all of these elements - the text for the help pages, any images you've included, and the formatting details that make it all look good. What's special about the .HMXZ file is that it's not just a single file; it's actually a collection of several files that are compressed into one. This compression is similar to how a .ZIP file works, making it easier to manage and share because it takes up less space. Inside this compressed .HMXZ file, there's an important file in XML format that acts as the project file, organizing and keeping track of all the content in your help documentation.

If you need to open a .HMXZ file, you'll use the EC Software Help+Manual program. This is the software that's specifically designed to work with these files, allowing you to create, edit, and view the help documentation projects stored within them.
