Re: Using Kraken to reduce images

Hi Olivier,

If they are screenshots in PNG format, a good way to reduce the file size is by changing to 8-bit colour. It makes a big difference to file size, without having much effect on the image.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Using Topic ID as variable

bilaai_b wrote:Is there a way to show the Topic ID (found in Topic Options screen) on the help page?

Hi,

Just enter <%TOPICID%> in your topic text.

The ones you are using are for use in the HTML page templates, not topic text. The one above works for both.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

How do you define 'one of the older frameset skins' ? Hi Sue, I meant any of the skins other than the Premium Pack V3 skins, which I don't think will work in TWebBrowser. So any of the native H&M skins, or the Premium Pack V2 skins such as those for EWriter, or no skin at all. In fact I still l...

Re: Developer - Object Link

I did get it to work, You do need to compile to see it show up. How would you use this technique to solve an issue? Hi Terry, Glad you got it to work. What you use it for is down to your imagination. :) In effect it's the Xplain equivalent of having a toggle in an H&M topic. You could also use ...

Re: Developer - Object Link

Do you embed from the Edit HTML source code option from the PopUp menu on right click of an object? The edit HTML source code starts like this <p style="text-align:center">Enter Text</p> How would you embed with this? Hi Terry, Yes. Delete that and replace it with the code I posted. You n...

Re: Feature request: got to certain slide in preview

Martin, that's fine when working on a file, but the keyboard shortcuts can also be very handy when actually presenting stuff, or exercising a presentation. Hi Kai, On the Publish page, try the Slide Indicators or the Slide Thumbnails skins in the dropdown list. You can click on any indicator/thumbn...

Re: Adding animations to a single object

Thanks Tim, I noticed that if multiple items are selected, they are all scaled when changing the size. One of the best bits of Meccano in HX is the HTML editor. It means you can put anything in an Xplain -- web pages, YouTube videos, feedback forms. Even embed one Xplain inside another -- I can see ...

Re: Adding animations to a single object

However, there is a trick you can use to apply two animations to an object. Hi Tim, Many, many thanks for that nudge to the grey cells. I've finally got what I've been wanting all along. A cursor which moves, pauses , and then clicks. That's going to halve my number of slides and Xplain creation ti...

pasting in a slide moves the slide list

Hi Alexander Using HX 1.0.3.1087, thanks for that. :) But copying and pasting objects on a slide, causes the current slide to scroll to the visible bottom of the slide list. This not very helpful if you don't notice the slides have moved and want to select the next one. p.s. I understand that you sa...

Re: Move velocity?

Use the Interpolation setting to change the velocity. Both Quadratic and Cubic start off quickly and slow down at the end. Thanks Alexander. I'm already using cubic for everything -- I would like to see it as the default. :) But it doesn't solve the problem of needing a different duration according...

Move velocity?

When an object moves, we can set the duration for the move, in seconds. Can I suggest an option to set the velocity, i.e. in pixels per second? HX could then calculate the duration from the distance to be moved. Setting the velocity would give a more consistent feel to the presentation. At present, ...

Go to web page?

What am I missing? It seems to be impossible to select the Go to a web page action:

hx_no_web_link.png

It's enabled and flashes briefly, but returns to Do nothing.

cheers,

HX zoom slider?

There seems to be a bug in the zoom slider (bottom right of HX main window).

Clicking the minus button [-] zooms in (i.e. same as the [+] button).

Also, resizing the HX main window changes the zoom setting. Is that intended?

cheers,

Martin.
