Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

one-way conversion capability was already in the HelpXplain wish list This is correct. Emphasis on was . It turned out to be quite tricky. The two libraries are not compatible at all, we need an transfer format or write the naked XML code in Impict. Text objects and simple images should be fine. Bu...

Re: Image (.PNG) Sharpness

We are going to check if this can be improved for Chrome. But the effects will be very limited. The reason is that Chrome renders sub-pixels, whereas Firefox and Edge/IE round the pixels to integer numbers, then render it. Most Xplains will be displayed either in a lightbox or in a responsive iFrame...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

add pre-recorded sound effects to, say, transitions and animations and so on? I don't know. We've got to test, if animations with accompanying sound can work in the majority of browsers. Could be difficult to keep them in sync, for animations use a flexible timing, depending on the capabilities of ...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Rob, what do your Impict images typically contain? It would probably be easier to implement a HelpXplain export into Impict than the other way around. Simple images and text objects could be converted nicely. Basic shapes as well. But everything else is really complicated.

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

On-click animations include the expansion of a smaller image to full size Would be possible, why not. But you don't have to wait for this. It's already implemented: Insert a picture, resize it to a thumbnail and assign a click interaction to it, that executes a script: xplain.animateTo(this, 1, {sc...

Re: Screencast Script error

Hi Alan, I sent you a private message with an updated loader script. This script is responsible for the error - the Xplain itself will test if it can run and display a fallback message if the browser is not capable. Generally speaking, Xplains run on MSIE 9 or later (released in 2011) and most deskt...

Re: Wait after last animation

After thinking about it... I like Anders' idea best. We could introduce a "wait" animation, that doesn't do anything but pause for the duration. That kind of "animation" could be assigned to any object on the slide. Would you consider it a strange thing to assign an animation tha...

Re: Wait after last animation

This request has been aired a couple of times. We will implement this in one of the next updates. The only question so far is, where exactly? Does it make sense to add a delay-before-advance to slides? Or would it be more versatile to have a delay-after for each animation? You could add this to the ...

Re: Customizing Slide Templates

If not, could this be something for the future?

It's meant to be implemented in a future release. The slide templates can yet not be edited, because the visual editor for them is missing. But a template editor is on the wishlist.

Re: HX MP4 output

The distributable files are listed in the master page. We should perhaps make it more obvious, which files you need to deploy. As for the structure, this is designed to have more than one Xplain in the same folder. Every Xplain has its own HTML page and a sub-folder that matches this name. The sub-f...

Re: HX MP4 output

3. Is there a way to put the HTML player control bar underneath the bottom of the slides instead of overlaying it In addition to Tim's answers: yes, it is possible to put the player controls underneath . This actually applies for the default player skin only. Open the Publish dialog and click "...

Re: Spotlight shape?

Maybe my laptop is too old. Running Windows 7, 32 bit.

Should be fine. Maybe slow, but working. Can you email me the .xplain file where you applied a highlight effect that doesn't show? Email: alexander.halser (at) ec-software.com
