Re: Facebook Sharing an xplain

The 1297 version works fine. The app_id is a warning but at least now it shares without issue - thanks

Re: Facebook Sharing an xplain

Thanks Alexander,
The FB Debugger does complain about the missing app_id but then it goes ahead and create a 0 (zero) one anyway.
I'll give the beta a go shortly

Re: Facebook Sharing an xplain

OK - firstly I think this is a bit misleading FBProperties.PNG It infers that the xplain name needs to be included in the URL - but it shouldn't be. If it is, the og:url is broken Secondly: FBDebugWarnings.PNG FB Sharing Debugger says the og:image tage needs to be stated in full - not abbreviated wi...

Facebook Sharing an xplain

I have published an xplain slideshow. It can be seen here: http://www.meta.com.au/dmdocuments/xplain/estimatecostcodes.html But when I try to share it on Facebook either via the use of the share shortcut on the xplain OR during a manual post of the url,,, I get a file not found error xplainfberror.P...

Re: f_header1 style - default.css

Thanks that works the way I need now.
The extra " was a test I suppose

Code: Select all

style="color: "#ffffff";>

But here's the thing My project is published as CHM with the FreshLIme skin which demands white Heading1 style on a green topic heading area Then I publish to Webhelp with the BabyBlue sk...

Re: f_header1 style - default.css

OK thanks - but I suppose I'm still unclear on two things. First the f_Header style did used to be present in previous skin css files. So not sure ho that was changed. Secondly, I use the skin to publish to CHM - where I do want white text on the green background, but also on the Webhelp version whe...

f_header1 style - default.css

I am using the babyblue skin for Webhelp. When it compiles I get a default.css with, amongst other styles, f_Header1 This style used to be in the skin baggage .css file HM_TOPICSTYLES.css? But for the life if me I cannot find it in the latest skin. I am currently resorting to editing the default.css...

Suggestion for Interface

When working with slides, the slide list seems to re-position disturbingly. Especially when deleting a slide, it (the next active slide) always goes to the bottom rather than the list close up from the bottom leaving the previous slide where it is and the cursor occupying the next slide in sequence....

Print Topic Footer CHM

When you print a topic from the CHM file, you get a very cryptic footer
mk:@MSITStore: plus path etc

Is there a way to format this output header and footer?

File Locking

I have just updated to 1.0.2.1080
It's a pity now I have to close the xplain each time I compile in H&M.
The first version compiled the xplain even though I had it open - I didn't need to keep shutting and re-opening it when test viewing in a new compile.
Is there a way to revert this?

Re: Image (.PNG) Sharpness

hmm, yes - you're right. Do we know why? I've never had the impression before that Chrome was poor in this regard but I can see that Edge is sharper. IE is sharper as well.

Re: Image (.PNG) Sharpness

Actually the CHM output is quite sharp (other than the one which is set to 100% which varies in clarity - to be expected).
So it's surprising that the CHM fixed size is sharp and the Webhelp output is blurry
