Hello!

Disclaimer: I am the author of GIF Explainer (and a number of other tools).

GIF Explainer is a tool that makes it easy to create slide-based GIFs for:
  • Tech support: create GIFs with step-by-step instructions containing screenshots and annotations and send them over almost any possible channel - email, instant messaging, Facebok, etc
  • Project explainers: "explainer" is a short animation showcasing most prominent features and benefits of your project that you normally want to put on your landing page
  • Education: create educational "snacks" for your students that they can digest easily and share with others. GIF Explainer allows to add formulas and rich formatted text with tables and lists to your GIFs.

Documenting software is always a pain. But I can give you painkillers.

The link in the most recent post doesn't work - but the BDJ link in the first message of the thread does.  You may want to fix that.
