Re: HX skin when inserted in H&M?

While using this method the share button of the "Default skins" is not displayed in the *.chm.
Help+Manual removes the share buttons for CHM and eBook compilation. To share an Xplain it has to have a public web address. There's nothing to share from inside a CHM file.

Re: Publish selected topics, Word output oddity

Hi Dave, Do the selected topics have one common ancestor node? The MS Word export strictly adheres to the TOC, because there is no other way to structure the content in Word. So if you do a multi-selection in different sub-chapters, it needs one common ancestor node to tie them together. And that ma...

Re: Accessible PDF

Sorry, this answer is not correct. There is no section 508 for PDFs in particular, but accessible PDFs are in the format PDF/A. This is supported in Help+Manual. You can set this option in Config > Publishing Options > PDF > PDF Options . the "PDF/A Mode" is what you need. Help+Manual supports PDF/A...

Re: Bookmark sorting

Hello Ron, If you manage bookmarks manually, they appear in the order as you set them (latest bookmark at the end of the list). If you let H&M manage bookmarks automatically, it creates a bookmark for every comment in a topic. In this case, bookmarks are updated whenever the topic that includes the ...

Re: Lightbox loads ./xplain/*.html from root domain instead of relative path

Hi Markus, Is this Help+Manual 7 or Help+Manual 8? HM7 used a slightly different method to load Xplains. I totally do not understand due to the ./ before the xplain folder The ./ refers to the current folder, which is the topic folder. The topic file, which hosts the Xplain, is located in www.our-do...

Re: Scary things showed up in report Unused Images - bootmgr

Funny! :D But nothing will happen if you click on that button, except for an error dialog that Help+Manual could not remove these files. Most probably it cannot even remove the .BMP file in the root directory. Deleting files from the root folder requires admin rights, which H&M does not have while r...

Re: ePUB - Table of Contents

You can actually do a lot to style your TOC in this template. It's even possible to add graphics if you need to. Here's an example that removes the bullets from the TOC, displays the top-level entries only and hides sub-chapters. Above the actual TOC I've placed a baggage image for illustration.

Re: ePUB - Table of Contents

Hi Andrew, There is currently no option to remove the TOC page from the ePUB altogether in Help+Manual, but you can modify it. The actual TOC is inserted through a variable. H&M tests if the variable is present (though that's an option we could easily change to a simple warning instead of an error)....

Re: Videos & PDF's

Hi Ron,
For Xplains this is already available in Help+Manual 8. Web videos (Youtube, Vimeo) have been doing this automatically in version 7 already.

Re: PDF Export Landscape

Hello Mr Krommer,

I think the image is too large on the page. Help+Manual auto-adjusts images to fit the width only, but not the page height.

Interesting, Facebook used to accept relative image URLs before. Not sure why they have unlearned resolving a relative path...

Re: Slide progess without click

Works perfectly fine for me. Index 4 = slide #5. when this slide is reached, autoplay stops. You can see this indicated by the play button in the default skin: it changes back from "pause" state to the "play" icon.

Re: Javascript error

Hi Gerold, The only thing that comes to my mind is that HelpXplain has not been updated completely, only parts of it. Please uninstall it, make sure that the installation folder does not longer exist, then reinstall. The javascript error is odd. I have seen that before, but only with damaged javascr...
