Re: Converting embedded pictures

Hi Ted, Thanks for this helpful information! Yes, I can imagine that it takes a while to open the picture-save dialog, if so many images with "clipXXX" are in the search folder. We've never had this problem before, but we'll see if we can come up with a faster solution for the file name su...

Re: Relative Links from Snippets for same Anchor Names in Mu

UPDATE: I just saw that you posted this in the version 6 forum... Yes, this works in version 7 and did not work in version 6. Hm... did I get this right: you have a snippet and the snippet points to an anchor, let's call it "Anchor1". This anchor, however, is not defined inside the snippe...

Re: readability statistics according Flesch-Kincaid

That's an interesting idea, thank you for the information! As far as I understand, the formula counts syllables. I wonder how Help+Manual could find out how many syllables a word has. In English, German, French, Italian, Russian, you name it. Do you know if syllables also define the possible breakpo...

Re: SVG graphic performance

I second the suggestions to try to reduce the SVG size. The rendering engine in Help+Manual is native, that is, we have the source code and can let it do what we need. There might by faster renderers, but if that is an external black box, it doesn't help. We need to translate SVG drawing commands in...

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...

Hi Rodrik, You can download the latest beta build 4482 from this link: https://www.helpandmanual.com/download/help-and-manual-setup-v736.exe It is a stable beta and already includes the new date variables: <%DATELONG%> returns the current date with long month names (change: now in genitive form). <%...

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.

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...
