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 ...

Re: Add date formatting to <%TOPICLASTEDITED%>

Hi Andie,

This is already supported. Both variables <%NOW%> and <%TOPICLASTEDITED%> can be used with a time/date format string. These two are the only predefined dedicated date/time variables.

Re: 508 Compliance - CHM

Hi Tonea, Second, is this failure a result of something I did or didn't do in the publishing of the CHM format? I am not sure if the Windows HTML Help viewer is section 508 compliant. It's a Microsoft product and part of the operating system. If the screen reader does not even see the topic pane wit...

Re: Automatic index keyword separators please!

Hi Kate, Would you mind to send me a test project (in Korean language) including the MNL template file that you use for PDF? Please send it to alexander.halser (at) ec-software.com. The keyword index is sorted by a Windows function that uses the language of your project as the sort algorithm. The li...

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...
