Paper Killer is a WYSIWYG help authoring tool created by Visual Vision, an Italian software company. The software is used by technical writers to create manuals in various formats.

PaperKiller is a visual hypertext oriented software, specializing in the creation, management, publishing of any type of electronic documentation (technical manuals, hypertext, hypermedia, software user guides, online help systems, and training manuals).

The software includes an integrated all-in-one environment that permits visual linking and live links (this is called the WYSIWYL interface).

Paper Killer works with a document that encapsulates a set of pages and images, instead of working with single pages/files, so its design is different from common HTML editor programs: the user does not have to manage / memorize single filenames; with the editor it is possible to revise, browse, and search within the whole hypertext without the need to continuously save and load the information.

The ancestor of PaperKiller, iPer (that is also the common ancestor of Hyper Publish), was created in 1996 at Politecnico di Torino and was presented at the ED-Media 97 EdMedia World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia, and Telecommunications in Calgary.
