Re: PDF output

Check the TOC entries on all 6 levels in the Table of Contents section. Make sure that there is no extra space in the bands there and also check that the text objects in the 6 TOC bands are all anchored in the same way. "Left Top" for objects on the left side, "Right Top" for objects on the right an...

Re: centralized program options, adding bookmarks for comments retrospectively

Hi Thomas, 1. Any way to "enforce" certain settings on the users? Unfortunately not. There is not currently anything like a Windows group policy in Help+Manual. 2. Any way to automatically find the comments and add a bookmark for them (except by writing a script to parse all topics and modify the *....

Re: Layout manual

Hi Giovanni,

Please send your .mnl layout file and a small demo project to support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @) and we will check it for you. That will be easier than going back and forth with a discussion here to try to figure out where the errors are.

Re: Slide progess without click

Hi Gerold, Are you saying I should publish with autoplay and remove the autoplay on the 80% where I do not want it? No, but you can activate autoplay wherever you want with a script action attached to an object and deactivate it automatically at any slide the with the slide property. So for example,...

Re: Picture-in-Picture possible

Hi Gerold,

You do things like this in the Slides Overview frame at the top of the list. You can manipulate slides there just like the objects inside slides in the slides.

Re: Convert to plain text does not redraw, converts all link

Hi Greg,

As soon as you are anywhere in a link it is a single object and converting to plain text will convert everything. The delay is a known cosmetic issue, it's on the ToDo list. :)

Re: Image suffix collisions cause wrong image to display

Hi Mike, I think you are referring to file extensions, not suffixes, which would be in the name itself. 8) This is a standard issue in Help+Manual that is caused by the way the program handles images. Since image formats often need to be converted on output, images with the same name should always b...

Re: Slide progess without click

Hi Gerold, Select the slide in the slide list, then open Position and Timing in the Properties pane on the right. There you can activate the option to stop AutoPlay at that slide. Alternatively you can also have a click on any element stop AutoPlay by attaching a script action to it: Select the elem...

Please send a download link for th zipped version of a cut down demo version of your project that can reproduce the issue to support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @).

Re: Picture-in-Picture possible

Hi Gerold, So what I envision is that the user can indeed click on that button and that animation (slide x to y) is played in a smaller window somewhere on the current slide. You can achieve this by positioning the slide you want to jump to inside the other slide. Set the slide without a border and ...

Re: Using a skin and a style repository?

The H&M-documentation (online help or PDF) recommends keeping my styles in the skin that I use. I think this is a misunderstanding. You can't keep your project styles in a skin. The skin's styles are only for the layout around the topic content. The topic content itself is formatted by a separate C...

Re: Long table not displaying across pages in PDF output

I have long tables in my project. While generating PDF output, the tables are not laid across pages. Instead, the content in the table ends abruptly in the first page itself. Is there a setting for this in Print Manual Designer? This is a setting in the properties of each table. Just open the prope...
