Re: Imported RTF but auto-gen Topic IDs are not human readab

Hi Dave, You didn't do anything wrong, this is just Word's internal way of referencing topics with bookmarks. If you import a Word RTF file that has, or has had, a Table of Contents generated in it, you will get these strange Topic IDs in the format Tocxxxxxxx, where the x's are numbers. This is bec...

Re: Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

But that seems to be in the wrong place -- the Picture functions are surely intended to apply to the current slide? It would be more logical to insert a screencast under Home > New Slide. Good point. This kind of thing is easy to miss during development since in that context you always know where s...

Re: Screencast spotlight size?

Not at the moment, but I'm sure it will come eventually. I think the current assumption is that they are all going to be edited anyway... 8)

Re: Adding a screencast to existing Xplain?

Select the slide where you want to start or continue a screencast, then select Screencast in the Picture tool dropdown in the Home tab. :)

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Thanks for the quick update! Is it possible to do an "exe" with a presentation! During development we actually had eWriter EXE files as an output option for a while but it wasn't implemented in the final release. The rationale was that for something like this you really don't want to be d...

Re: Problems editing a Help&Manual Project (.hmxz)

Hi Rob, In this case it's unlikely that looking at the project would help. This is almost certainly a local configuration issue. The first thing to do is to make a copy of everything on your network location on your local drive and try editing it there. My guess would be that you won't see the effec...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Hi Rob, To Tim - I don't want to start any internal wars there, but Alexander said that a one-way conversion capability was already in the HelpXplain wish list. No problem, that was just something that passed me by during development. And knowing both tools intimately I know what a monstrous task co...

Re: Wait after last animation

But you are the ones claiming that an Xplain can replace a video, so it would seem to make sense to get it as close as possible to similar functionality.

There's a difference between being able to replace a video for what you want to achieve and actually being a video.

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Hi Rob, please consider putting the .ipp import/convert into an early revision. That's not going to happen because HelpXplain and Impict are just two completely different worlds. You can continue to use Impict and your IPP creations, that isn't going to go away. But if you want to do something in HX...

Re: Problem with subversion commit.

Hi Simon, By default Help+Manual will commit everything in your project folder and this can't be disabled. Among other things, this makes it possible to include your graphics file folders in your project folder and add files to it without having to take any manual actions to include them. The histor...

Re: Wait after last animation

Hi Martin, What you're describing here is simply moving closer and closer to a video. I think if you need something like that you really need to be working in Camtasia or Captivate. The paradigm in HelpXplain is different, and it naturally comes with its own limitations. The paradigm of Camtasia and...
