Hi David,

Yes, you can jump in and out of multiple HTML Code Objects.

cheers,

Re: How to publish with alternate image set?

Hi Chris,

You don't need to copy them. Just rename the folder they are in to match one of the folders the Search paths.

Re: Searching for Dead Links

2) when I click on a link of that HTML report, it takes me to that topic in the HTML report, but does not change my position in H&M to the topic in question. Hi Olivier, It's working for me. But only for the Topic ID link on the right side of the report. The links in the Refers To list don't wo...

Re: Martin's TOC modifier

Is there a fundamental reason why v3 responsive skins cannot be modified to do this, or is it just that you do not use them so have not needed to implement the enhancement for them? Hi Tim, The PP v3 skins differ fundamentally in their working from other skins. There is no TOC file as such which co...

Re: Delineator/separator in TOC - chapter without text?

Most interested, Martin. Biggest question is around maintenance, because maintenance is our middle name ('constant change' being the other middle name...) Hi Dave, Maintenance shouldn't be too bad. If you change the order of TOC topics, or make them child topics, or insert new topics between them, ...

Re: Formatting WebHelp TOC possible?

Other than ALL CAPS / all lowercase, are there ways to format the WebHelp TOC? We'd like to add a background color or change the color of specific listings, if possible. Or include an icon the listings of certain topics. Hi Dave, see: https://helpman.it-authoring.com/viewtopic.php?p=65308#p65308 Ma...

Re: Delineator/separator in TOC - chapter without text?

I have begun to think we should have that icon just before the product name... :) Hi Dave, I have now got a working exe utility to modify a TOC listing. You can add mouse-over tooltips to an item, create coloured sections and separators, insert headings, add an icon image to an item. Separators can...

Martin's TOC modifier

I have created a Windows utility for my own use to modify a Webhelp TOC. It adds mouse-over tooltips and/or icons to any TOC item, and can divide the TOC into sections with coloured backgrounds and headings. It is suitable for use with TOCs from all H&M skins or none, except the Premium Pack Ver...

Re: Delineator/separator in TOC - chapter without text?

It would greatly enhance our (unfortunately) complicated help output for our (unfortunately) extremely complex program. Ok, Dave. I started on it in your other topic a few weeks ago, and then got side-tracked. I'm easily side-tracked these days. I will get back to it now. :) Anything else? You migh...

Re: Delineator/separator in TOC - chapter without text?

You can do almost anything you like with H&M, if creating HTML output. And make it relatively easy to maintain/update. For example, the Publishing Task Manager includes an option to add Build Events to a publishing task. Which means you can write a Windows utility exe to parse/edit any of the H&...

Re: Sanity check - am I revising TOC number entries right?

Hi Dave,

It's not the end of the world, because if you think anyone might have created a dead link you can easily put a redirect on the server. Ask your IT person to do it for you if necessary. It's extra work, but only takes a minute or so to do.

cheers,

Martin.
