Re: No topic titles in index?

Strange enough, now the Simple Layout tab is greyed and cannot activated anymore

This means you have modified the simple default layout. To restore it, click the "Reset template" button.

Re: No topic titles in index?

Hi Jens, Please send a test project to reproduce this (the H&M project source). When a dedicated keyword in a CHM file points to 2 or more topics, the CHM viewer displays a topic list to select from. The topic list shows the topic title and the help file. If that list shows entries with "un...

Re: How to address PDF output FONT issue?

We have updated the 7.3 beta today: http://download.ec-software.com/help-and-manual-setup-v730-beta.exe This build has a new PDF font-embedding option to embed fonts from font collections as Type3 fonts. It is a fallback option that kicks in if a TrueType font cannot be embedded because it is part o...

Re: How to address PDF output FONT issue?

MS Gothic is a font collection , not a single TTF. Help+Manual cannot embed excerpts of font collections. If you switch to "Type3" embedding in Help+Manual (Config > PDF > Font Embedding), it will work. "Type3" embedding rebuilds the font glyphs before embedding them and does not...

Re: Strange Color Issue with 32bpp PNG and PDF Output

Hi Sheri, Please send us the PNG image with a small test project that triggers the problem. However, it is very likely that this PNG file is indeed the problem and it makes sense that you did not notice that with earlier versions of H&M. In H&M 7 we changed the handling of PNG images in PDF ...

Re: Help with Images in Output PDF

No, it does not export metafiles. It cannot, it's not designed for that at all. Making Impict a vector-based drawing program would be nice, but requires a complete rewrite from scratch including a new image format. We can as well use any SVG editor instead. What makes vector graphics so complicated ...

Re: Help with Images in Output PDF

Basically it's about the Impict-to-PDF pipeline. An IPP file stores text and shape objects as vectors but they are rendered at low (screen) resolution. No, Impict images are bit-maps, essentially. They just store additional meta information about the (text) objects, so that the objects can be edite...

Re: Help with Images in Output PDF

I just did a glance over this thread... do I get it right that it is about "jagged" text in images in PDF files? There are two kinds of images in general - bit-maps and vector graphics. BMP, JPEG, GIF and PNG are the first category. Text in those images is basically pixels spread over unde...

Re: Umlauts are not correct when complied on TFS Teambuild

OK the problem is related with TFS and the "get" on the build machine. Yes, it looks like that. All XML source files of Help+Manual are UTF8 encoded with BOM. The HMXP, the topic XML files. Always. The temporary CHM sources created by H&M, however, are ANSI encoded, because the HTML H...

Re: Umlauts are not correct when complied on TFS Teambuild

Hi Ulrich, I think that the Microsoft help compiler mangles the umlauts. Please export your help manually and untick the box to delete the temporary files. This will create a folder called ~tmpchm in the project folder. In a second step, run the help compiler directly - ideally from a batch file. Th...

Re: IPP Preview in File Explorer

Hi Tobias, We can duplicate the problem. If the file association with IPP images is set (icon shown), the preview handler stops working and vice versa. However, we decided to put the preview on the back burner for the time being and removed it from the setup. We'll get back to this, unfortunately mo...

Re: IPP Preview in File Explorer

You could try to register the preview handler manually. To do this, create 2 batch (.bat) files with a text editor, then run them as admin. This is what the installer/uninstaller actually does. Batch file to register the preview handler: regsvr32 "C:\...pathtoHelpandManual...\ImpictPreviewHandl...

Re: IPP Preview in File Explorer

Hi Tobias,

There are no icons or thumbnails of IPP images, this is an entirely different matter. Just the preview pane should display a preview, if the preview pane is on.

Re: IPP Preview in File Explorer

Can you re-install H&M as admin? The preview works fine for me on Win10.
