Dropping in file links

I like that you can drop file links into H+M.

1/ If I drop in a group of more than 1 files, can I have it automatically have each link on a new line?

At the moment it just groups everything into a single bunch.

2/ By default it creates the link in the root of my project file. How can I change this?

Re: Image labelling - pdf and web/eWriter

That's a massive help.

I managed to do what I wanted using Notepad++.

Many thanks as always, Tim.

Re: Image labelling - pdf and web/eWriter

OK, nice one. One more thing...

If I use Find & Replace to search for Captions, H+M will only find items in a Edit Figure Caption if selecting Current Topic. Selecting All Topics produces no results.

Image labelling - pdf and web/eWriter

When producing my pdf documents I currently label images/tables using either the Image Caption or Insert Figure Caption options. I format each image as " Fig./Table <%NUMBERING1%>-<%HMFIG/TBLCOUNTER%> - ". However, for obvious reasons, when producing for web/eWriter <%NUMBERING1%> just leaves a plac...

Re: Importing HMI interface screens and information

Cheers, Tim. This is all looking pretty positive. I've just been told this morning that they are looking at integrating the eWriter with the current software as it is Windows based. We've potentially gone from print outs of Word and Powerpoint to a paperless, fully integrated, interactive help syste...

Re: Importing HMI interface screens and information

Thanks Tim. About 1 in 10 projects require us to match the customer's style. Is that possible when still using the same repository? While we're here, I've always thought HelpXplain would be superb for screen mapping and processes if 1/ you could link images 2/ you could reference individual pages to...

Importing HMI interface screens and information

Our electric engineers create an Human Machine Interface (HMI) for all our production machinery. Basically a touch screen interface that can control an entire machine. As you can imagine there are usually between 100 and 1000 screens. Each screen needs breaking down and an explanation put in the doc...

Picture ID

I like where the new image caption system is going. When adding a caption the Picture ID generates a random FIG number. Even the H+M's own help manual suggests changing this number to something more useful. I would like the ID to be the filename of my image (correcting it for spaces etc like when cr...

Re: Fitting a large image in a pdf

The image is also only 163 mm x 240 mm (1925 px x 2835 px) so it should easily fit the page. :?

Re: Writing a Plant Operating Manual

I've been using this for a few weeks now:

https://www.reaconverter.com/

It can batch convert pdf's to whatever format you desire. It can also crop, resize and all sorts.

To convert a pdf takes about a minute per 100 pages.

You could then just drop all the images into a topic in one go.

Fitting a large image in a pdf

I cannot find a way to fit an image to a page of a pdf; the image always overlaps the bottom of the page.

Is there a way around this?
