Re: Is there an alternative to using a WebHelp Feedback mail

Hi Dave, It's easy enough to make a "Contact Us" topic. Link to it from your feedback button. Insert an HTML Code Object on there. Put an ordinary HTML <form> on there. Have it submit to a simple PHP file on your server. Write the PHP file to collect the sender's data and email it to you. ...

Re: Ewriter exe file property versions

Hi, I don't know the answer to your question about setting it from H&M. But there is a simple 3rd party program FVIE available (free) which can edit the file version information in any exe file: http://www.carifred.com/fvie/ From http://www.carifred.com which is a French company with several use...

Re: WebHelp - Copying text adds empty lines

Are you copying from H&M's editor or from its published webhelp output? What are you pasting into? Hi Simon, He is copying text from a web page in a browser into H&M's RVF editor. I have been there myself. There is no way to paste a newline (Shift+Return keys in the editor) into the RVF edi...

Re: Writing a Plant Operating Manual

The manual will basically be a huge collection of pdfs Hi Riccardo, How many is a "huge collection"? Most desktop publishing programs and some PDF readers will open a PDF and export each page as an image. You could then include them in an H&M topic as a sequence of images, and publish...

Re: RENAMING TOPICS

Hi - I noticed that if one clicks twice on the Topic name (in the contents topics down the left hand side of the page) you can rename it - but when you look at the "Topic Options" tab it only changes the name in the Title Tag - not in the Topic Identification - can someone please advise h...

Re: Standalone Help Page Usage/Suggestion/Request

Hi, In the H&M HTML Export Options you can choose the extension for the topic files -- htm, html, php. This means that you can have duplicate topics of the same name in your output folder, one as say .htm and the other as say .html. You could therefore run the publishing task twice into the same...

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: 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 ...
