Re: Russian long date format

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...

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.

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...
