Re: Russian long date format

Hello Ilya, We confirm the problem, though it's not clear to me, why the two functions stopped working. Both had been tested and verified. Actually, this date function internally returns an error and that's why the standard date function takes over - without month names in genitive form. Please use ...

Re: EBook Issues

Hello Sue, Please create the ebook (ebook.pebk) in debug mode. The H&M ebooks have this option on board already: Clip1.gif This will tell you what happens when the ebook starts, but displays the wrong page. If the ebook viewer does not show its viewer window at all, it is a different problem, th...

Re: EBook Issues

Hi Sue,

Can you please try the cases that do not work repeated times?
The ebook instantiates a local webserver instance and it sometimes takes longer until this local webserver is ready to deliver. I think this is the case here. It just takes longer for the local server to respond.

Re: Images with or without dimension overlay

The overlay is shown when the image has a minimum (display) size.
If it's too small, no overlay will be displayed. Small is less or equal to 32 pixels width or height.
I guess your first image is up to 32 px high (measuring the display size).

Re: youtube video embeds and suffix "rel=0"

Hello Mitch, It seems that YouTube has recently dropped support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9... Because this is what causes the bug. The &rel=0 paramter is not the problem. H&M simply creates a iFrame and specifies the embedding URL. The code is simple and has been widely tested. But in...

Re: Russian long date format

Ok. Please use the variable <%DATELONG%> instead of the formatting variable <%NOW(xxx)%>.

<%DATELONG%> will still return month names in the nominative form, but we are going to change that in the next update, so that it retrieves the genitive form of the long month name.

Hm... seems indeed to be an issue of the Windows API call used:

Re: Russian long date format

Hi Rodrik, What value do you get for the variable <%MONTHNAME%> ? <%MONTHNAME%> equals to the format string <%NOW(mmmm)%> (note the lowercase "mmmm"). Help+Manual uses a Windows function to retrieve the date string. It displays whatever Windows delivers for a given format string. To get th...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

When I run WebHelp, it wants to convert all images to 96 DPI at the scaled size. I'm puzzled. Where do you get a downscaled image in Webhelp with Help+Manual 7? You said you are working with a PNG. But all native images (JPEG/PNG/GIF) are simply copied to the Webhelp output folder, at their origina...

Re: Help and Manual 7 can't import RTF-file

Hi Anelotte, We can duplicate that it imports as a single topic in Help+Manual. The topic is not really empty - just the text is all white. If you press CTRL+A to select all text in the topic, you will see the imported text. However, we did not notice a different behaviour in H&M v6. It imports ...

Re: Sec. window of HTML Help not working in certain envoronm

Hi Christoph, this is most likely an issue of how the HTML Help API is invoked by your software and it has perhaps to do with Excel and the fact that it is a COM add-in hosted by Excel. Without additional information, it's hard to even guess what could be wrong. What programming language do you use ...
