Re: Cannot edit the style of hmskin file

Hi David, The text styles in HTML skins were unfortunate in older versions of Help+Manual. I am not sure if styles from skins were applied in version 6, but in version 7 they definitely had no (more) function. Consequently, we disabled style editing in skins. A better place for global styles are res...

Re: Italian spelling checker dict-it.oxt doesn't work

Hi Bruno, Thank you for reporting this! This dictionary has an unusual folder structure. This structure in combination with a bug in the dictionary parser caused the spell check failure. We have fixed this problem with the build 4603 update today. Download: https://www.helpandmanual.com/downloads.ht...

Re: CHM issue

Please try to delete "HH.DAT" and all *.CHW and *.CHI files if they refer to your help file system. Do not delete any foreign CHW/CHI files. You should find them in the folder: \Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\HTML Help HH.DAT stores help window size and position for CHMs, globa...

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...
