Re: Applying a Text Style across multiple cells in a table

Hi Ga, For some reason I can't apply a Text Style over multiple cells in a table, only individually. How are you applying the style? I just double-checked this and it works fine, both with text and text+paragraph styles. Basically you select the cells you want to format with the style, then choose t...

Re: How do I mark changes in PDF/Word

is there a way to delete all instances of a certain text automatically? For example, can I delete all text enclosed in conditional markers, for example: <conditional marker IF>**<conditional marker ENDIF>? Is there a way to automatically delete all those comments afterwards from the project? Or one...

Re: Copying/moving snippets

Rainer,

You need to save the project first, of course, for reload to do what you want here. 8)

Re: How do I mark changes in PDF/Word

All those functions are only available for the project open in Help and Manual, right? Is there any way to show the changes in MS Word / PDF output? Not really. What you can do in PDF is use the comments function in Help+Manual (Comment tool in Write > Insert Object) and select the option in the Pu...

Re: How do I mark changes in PDF/Word

Hi Tansy, Help+Manual does not have content-level change tracking like that in MS Word and similar programs. However, it does have a number of other features that can help you: Report Tool The Report Tool in the Project tab can be used to generate a list sorted by the modification date, so that you ...

Re: Copying/moving snippets

Hi Rainer, Is there a hotkey available that refreshes the current topic—ideally while keeping the scroll and cursor position unchanged? You can reload the topic with Project > Manage Topics > File: Reload topic . You can assign a keyboard shortcut to this and most other functions in View > Program O...

Re: Copying/moving snippets

Hi Rainer, Actually, the snippet is not lost when you copy, it just needs to be refreshed. If you switch to another topic and back to the topic where you inserted it, then you will see the content. Linked snippets don't contain the XML code of the content, they only contain a reference to the snippe...

Re: Is documentation available for skins?

(My heading H4 is used only inside indented, 1-column tables a la the "Productivity Tips" in H+M's help file.) Then it's not relevant for the TOC. The headings for that are only generated from the topic headers, and on the basis of their levels in the TOC structures. Headings within topic...

Re: Error "Cannot open the file: mk:@MSITStore"

Hi Lex, There are a couple of possible causes for CHM failures of this kind. The most common is a graphics file that the (very ancient and creaky) Microsoft CHM compiler cannot handle correctly. This happens most frequently with BMP files that were saved with a graphics program that uses a non-stand...

Re: Question around Save As

The comments I wanted out of the "clean" version were at most only one paragraph and most were either a symbol, sentence fragment or one sentence, all buried within topics. I didn't see multiple TOC as a solution in this case. No, definitely not. 8) How you deal with comments depends on w...

Re: Is documentation available for skins?

Hi Dave, As so often, Word doesn't make this very intuitive. The important thing to know is that the numbering actually comes from the chapter headings, NOT from the table of contents itself. So if you want levels to be non-numbered you need to click in those in the chapter headings page in the temp...

Re: Question around Save As

Addendum: Also don't forget that the multiple TOCs feature can also be a very powerful method for creating different versions. You can create secondary TOCs with not only different topics and chapters included, but also with completely different structures for different needs. And you can create the...

Re: Is documentation available for skins?

Hi Dave, https://helpandmanual.com/help/index.html?hm_working_configoutput_docx.htm Trying to make the TOC extend to Head4 - right now, the Word template builds a TOC for heads 1-3. Since the template 1-3 involves 1 / 1.1 / 1.1.1 numbering, and I want H4 to be unnumbered, I'm not getting anywhere. T...

Re: Make all on-top dialogs floating/dockable windows

Hi Tobias, All the windows that can be dockable already are. When a dialog blocks all other input (known as a "modal" dialog) this is not done to annoy the user, but because it is really necessary. Allowing any other input before the action of the modal dialog is completed would cause prob...
