The company who makes this appears, very unfortunately, to be defunct. From the spherasoft Website: To everyone looking for SpheraSoft: I don't know what happened to SpheraSoft, nor do I know how to contact them. Black Ring obtained their IP a few months ago. I would assume the company has dissolved. Please understand that I can not help you with your programs or serial numbers. -Nace 1-17-08

I have paid the $4.95 for the program today 2-3-08. I have a serial number to activate it, and I can't find a place to download it now. The site and company appear to be gone. Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to find a copy? I have tried to contact esellerate (whom I made my payment through) and we'll see where this goes. I just want copy of the program i can activate. Can anyone help me out with this?

The download link brings up a "site suspended" sign. Not there.

I have been unable to contact the developer. On my Intel system at least, I can't use the search function. Furthermore, I have not heard back from the developer in about four weeks on the issue of not being able to export to PDF after registering the application.

The only thing that this app could benefit from is numbering pages or titling them when printing or exporting. That aside, about 6 minutes after downloading I registered. It did EXACTLY what I wanted with no extraneous clicking and sorting and setting options and messing around. A large CHM file was exported to PDF (1000+ pages) in little under a minute. That same thing would have taken me days using other solutions I tried. Well done!

Just like GREGORGY, I was looking to export a whole CHM file to PDF. I was delighted to find that the unregistered version did just that, albeit with the limits of trial operation. While I didn't bee GREGORY's 6 min to register, I came close. With Chimp registered, however, the PDF export no longer works. It simply does nothing, after I specify the destination file name and location for the PDF. Dominik Hoffmann

Had a problem applying the registration code in 10.4.2 but a couple of e-mails later the guys at Sphera mailed me a fixed version. Works like a charm. Beats the pants off CHM Viewer and Chmox (slow, no search, no export to pdf). Nice work Shawn, great support and a great app.

It works like a charm on my Mac (2xG5, Tiger). I missed this important feature .CHM -> PDF and vuala! here it is!!! I only miss a way to enlarge the Courier font, specially in .chm dedicated to programming, where the Courier listings are so frequent. It would be great to have some preferences where to select the size of default (?) fonts... Great update, faster than the previous. Anyway, Chimp is far away from Chmox, CHM Viewer, and Xchm. It has find, it is more robust and faster launching...
