I'm at the point now where my software application is working well and the only thing left to do is to create a help system.
My software is not too complicated, it's only one screen. However, there are many options on that screen. I've used help tags, where required and pop-up messages if the user does the wrong thing etc. But I still need an "overall" help system.
I accept It's always going to be an individual solution.
The upshot is that I find myself in the situation that I'm writing the help system and it's going to take a long long time, ie. a few weeks or more, after hours. Writing any possible scenario - it's too much work.
So, back to my question. I'm trying to detail "everything" way too verbose. Perhaps it "does" all need to be documented, or maybe not.
I understand there is no simple cut and dry answers to this, just your thoughts on how you go about providing user help, would be much appreciated.
