Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David, Style repository switching is unfortunately not trivial at the moment, as it involves physically rewriting all the styles defined in the project. It is not really something you want to be doing back and forth on an ongoing basis, at least not without great care and attention. Basically you...

Re: Can't Edit Styles because they are greyed out

Hi Steffen, You can change a repository from link to copy, that is fine. After that there is no longer a live link between the repository and the styles in the project. Basically, the repository is used once as a template. Changes made in the repository after that will no longer be reflected in the ...

Re: CHM vs. WebHelp vs. ?

However, when I now publish time merge, the variable from the first child project is applied correctly to it in the master TOC -- but then also applied to all the other children instead of their own locally defined <%MY_OPTION_NAME%>. That would only happen if they are children of the first child p...

Re: Can't Edit Styles because they are greyed out

Hi Steffen,

If your styles are greyed out in your project that means you have linked a style repository to the project. This allows you to use the same stylesheet for multiple projects to keep your styles consistent across all the projects. Then you need to edit the styles in the repository.

Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David,

Thanks for the feedback. 8) I'm going to change the reference to styles you tripped over in the command line syntax documentation. We're going to consider ways of using different content styles more flexible generally.

Re: CHM vs. WebHelp vs. ?

Does the fact that I link to the local variable in the child in the master TOC mean that the local variable becomes a global variable when the child project is publish time merged? No, absolutely not. If the variable is really only defined in the child then you will get the definition from the chil...

Re: CHM vs. WebHelp vs. ?

Problem: When I test publish a new TOC for publish time merging, the variable <%MY_OPTION_NAME%> is not taken from the individual projects (where it exists) but added to the variables list of the parent (where it did not exist) leading to the entry "Define option name variable" in the par...

Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David, Yes, that's possible. However, editing styles directly in .hmskin files isn't supported, because they're still designed for HTML only. Also, the styles referred to there are the CSS styles, not the integrated stylesheet. It will work if you hack the styles into it the way you describe, bec...

Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David, As per the H+M documentation shown below I should be able to edit the styles in a hmskin file... but all the Write > Style tab option is always deactivated. That's a misunderstanding. There's nothing about editing content styles in skins in the documentation because skins don't define your...

Re: Italian spelling checker dict-it.oxt doesn't work

Hi Bruno, There are two Italian dictionaries on OpenOffice and only one of them (the older one) appears to work. This is the one you downloaded (dict-it.oxt) and it doesn't appear to be working: https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/italian-dictionary-thesaurus-hyphenation-patterns This is th...

Re: Equivalent to Word's CTRL-Y (apply last edit)

And the topic I want to ask about the equivalent of another functionality. You cannot use the Ctrl key (but you can use it in relation to the content) to select multiple snippets in the text on the same page. Or somehow you can configure such a function? No, this isn't possible. CTRL+Click only wor...

Hi Elissa,

Actually, what is needed is a modification of the expand all function that allows you to disable the animation. That's something I'm looking into... 8)

Re: Printing topics w/toggles: Toggles don't expand before p

Hi Elissa, You are running into a classic timing trap, caused by the animation of the toggles. Unless you force it to, JavaScript execution doesn't wait for animations. It starts an animation and continues with execution of the next line of code while the animation is running. In pages with lots of ...
