Re: Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

I had situations when the variables were not editable, but I cannot (yet) reproduce them. Will keep trying.

Re: Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

Easier said than done...

Ctrl-T (insert variable) uses it without the 1, actually I cannot use that at all, as I cannot edit the value later.

I have to delete the variable and enter the complete name by hand...

Re: Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

I think I found the problem or misunderstanding. Your test outputs exactly as you said, but if I do (note no 1 after the +) 1: <%HMFIGCOUNTER=0%> (in body text) 3: <%HMFIGCOUNTER+%> (in body text) 2: <%HMFIGCOUNTER%> (in body text) Figure <%HMFIGCOUNTER%>:caption 5: <%HMFIGCOUNTER%> (in body text) F...

Re: Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

Hi Tim, thanks for the extensive explanation, but I think you are one step ahead of me and my misunderstanding is earlier in the process. To begin with, I do not want to reset anything. My first assumption is that all counter variables (be they old or new) are initially set to zero. I also understan...

Re: Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

Hi Tim,

installed it. No change.

If the first occurrence is <%HMFIGCOUNTER+1%> this comes out as 0 (zero).

BR,

Still do not understand HMFIGCOUNTER increments

Hi, I had a few questions around this end always ended up with a - to me - hack and now I would like to understand it once for all. I hasten to admit it must be my narrow mind... I start in the source with Figure <%HMFIGCOUNTER+%> shows ... <<here comes figure>> Figure <%HMFIGCOUNTER%>: Rear view of...

Re: Inserting htm page in HTML

I was told MS Visios SVG contains MS specific extensions and I have yet to find a Visio SVG that imports correctly. Not HMs fault though..

Double Spacing in Callouts

Hi, everytime I work with Xplain I struggle with the double text spacing appearing all over the places. I understand I have to set the text size explicitly in the design. I did this and the spacing is correct in text boxes, but not in callouts. Also I do not understand why this must be done in such ...

Hi, I have H&M 8 installed on my desktop PC and on my laptop using the same license key (supposedly legal :dunno: ).I just extended maintenance and entered the key on the desktop PC. All is fine. I was kinda expecting that on the laptop the maintenance would also show up as extended. As this wasn't ...

Hi, I have several situations where customers (mainly larger) have standardized on confluence for documentation. I'm totally unhappy with this, but you know how customers are. I'm constantly trying to convince them to use H&M but .... Now I'm wondering if there is a (I would assume only semi-) autom...
