Re: Windows10 update - cpu usage

Hi Tim, Well it's hardly throwaway - just loses some portability. Even with battery capacity down to 10% after say 10 years it would still be usable while the charger or Surface Dock is plugged in. Which means it would still be usable in the car, or if you can keep a battery power pack in your pocke...

Windows10 update - cpu usage

I noticed after the most recent Windows10 update that my Surface Pro was running continuously at 15% cpu usage even when idle. Causing the fan to start and stop at random intervals. After some digging it turned out to be caused by a screensaver slideshow running on the login screen. Or at least, tur...

Re: Automatic backup option missing in Program Options/Gener

The option "Automatically backup project file every N minutes" does not show on the dialog box "Program Options", "General" tab. Hi Patrick, That option is obsolete, see: https://helpandmanual.com/help/index.html?hm_ribbon_view_options_general.htm from which: "Aut...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

Hi Alexander,

It's a recent change.

Just tried in 7.3.0.4120, and it is not resampling. So you were not dreaming. Nor me. :)

cheers,

Martin.

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

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 original resolution. Hi Alexander, That's what I had always assumed. But it isn't true (...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

Hi Simon, I agree that I can't see any reason for H&M to resample images in webhelp when that can easily be left to the browser if wanted. What I meant was that you can easily avoid the resampling by inserting at 100%. If that doesn't produce the desired result you can give the image an HTML Cla...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

It might be a good idea to post this as a new request in the H&M Wish List forum. Or perhaps ask Tim to move this topic to there? Maybe, but what's baffling me is why anyone would insert an image in webhelp at other than 100% ? In 15 years using H&M I can't remember doing that ever. Why pre...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

If Martin still has the Firefox 22 screen dpi issue we discussed a while back, it could help with that, too. Hi Simon, 5 years on it hasn't gone away. I now have Firefox and Opera permanently set on 80% zoom for all web sites, so that 1px = 1dot on 120dpi screens. However, Edge has 1px = 1dot at 10...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

I will say again to the H&M developers: please have the WebHelp export not resize images from their original resolutions when em units are specified in the preferences. Hi, And I will say again, if you don't want H&M to resize your images, don't set 50% or any size other than 100%. I don't ...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

No, no, no. You are entirely free to do whatever you want. But if you already know, why ask? The answer to your problem is simple. Don't set 50% in H&M . Set 100%, and let the browser do any scaling needed to fit the screen, according to your chosen CSS settings, em, px, max-width, etc. regards...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

Right now, if I import a 1600 x 1200 image and set the scaling to 50%, WebHelp converts and saves a new image with 800 x 600 pixels Hi, If you set the scaling to 50% in H&M that is exactly what you are asking H&M to do -- resize your supplied image to half of its original size. I don't unde...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

But that is not what I want at all. I will try to explain again. I do my image captures at 200% Win 10 scaling on a 4K monitor Hi, I don't think that is making much sense. You mean you are using a setting of 200% in the Windows Display Properties, i.e. 192 DPI for font conversions? I'm also using a...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

I want WebHelp to export my image unchanged from the captured pixel dimensions with a scaling factor other than 100%. Why do I have to specify the scaling as 100% (or 99.90%) when modern browsers can scale down large images just fine and use the extra pixels on HiDPI displays to increase sharpness?...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

Hi, 192 DPI (dots per inch) is meaningless unless you are intending to print your images on paper in the real world. Display screens are sized in pixels, not inches. DPI screen values are used in order to scale fonts, not images -- fonts are typically sized in Point sizes (1 pt = 1/72nd inch), so a ...

Re: Mouse wheel in Windows10

I thought this was always the default in Windows 10. I've never consciously set it and mouse wheel scrolling has always worked for the window under the mouse pointer for me. Hi Tim, I have never consciously set it either, but something definitely changed after a recent Windows update. Just to be cl...
