Re: eBook format creation

Hi Sue, There's absolutely no need any more to use the stand-alone EWriter program. All its functionality is now integrated in Help+Manual 7, and you can generate your EWriter books from the command line there just like any other format. Just make sure that you are using the current version of the p...

Re: Search controls missing

Hi John, It looks like you're just using the standard integrated templates in your project without a skin. My guess is that your project is old and was created in an earlier version of HM, and its templates are not compatible with the output generated by the current version. The simplest solution is...

Re: Context-Sensitive Help not launching Help files to Map I

Another question I have is what Javascript file do I use on our application to capture the keystroke to launch the Web Help System? Basically, you just need to call the URL using the syntax explained in the documentation I referenced above. How you do it from your application is entirely up to you....

Re: Context-Sensitive Help not launching Help files to Map I

Hi David, We have hundreds of these items that are tagged with MapIDs, and would rather not recode everything with new calls. Well, you're going to have to bite the bullet and do it. There is no way around that. And since JavaScript won't import along with your HTML, you're going to have to rejigger...

Re: Topic ID variable for static text pages (PDF/print)

Tamara, This is already possible. It is the Insert Text Snippet option in the the Insert menu in Manual Designer. The only restriction is that the topic must fit on a single page, because snippets cannot flow to a second page in the PDF template. If you want to have more than one page you must repea...

Re: Context-Sensitive Help not launching Help files to Map I

Hi David, The problem is probably that your system is still using your old links to your old non-HM help. You need to use Help+Manual's WebHelp syntax for linking to your WebHelp topics. See this page in the documentation for details if you are using Help+Manual's standard skins or the standard Prem...

Re: Problem with Arabic PDF output

Right-to-left languages like Hebrew, Farsi and Arabic are only supported in WebHelp and CHM and only with the standard templates, not with add-on skins. They are not supported in PDF . Sorry about that, but it is not possible with the current PDF engine. :?

Re: How to get rid of background color in chapter headings?

Hi Mady, These are the normal Word Heading styles in the Word file itself. Open the DOCX template file in Word and click in the paragraph you want to select. Its style will then be highlighted in the style list in the Word ribbon (see below). Then right-click on the selected style and select Modify ...

Re: Text search in a merged project

Hi Aaron, When working with WebHelp search it's important to know that the search index is generated from the files in the output folder, not from the source Help+Manual projects (it is HTML-based search, so it needs the HTML files for the index). ⋅ Always use the option to delete all file...

Re: Sharing topics over project (Feature request)

Hi Vincent, I tested this and I do NOT get the topic when I create a Ewriter ebook. How did you test this? To insert an entire topic as a snippet you need to create an empty topic to insert it in, and then insert the snippet (and nothing else) in that topic. The Topic ID will then be the ID of the e...

Re: PDF TOC generating blank page

Hi Ga, All the objects in the table of contents section will get included in the TOC, even if they are empty, unless you reduce their height to 0. The summary is just an additional space at the end of the TOC for the insertion of additional items. It exists even if it is empty, so it will add space ...

Re: Cannot re-size Open Image dialog box

I've never noticed this because I've been working on much higher resolution screens exclusively for years. I've passed the question on to Alexander for comment. 8)
