Re: SVG graphic performance

To be honest, I've never understood "baggage files", so had no idea that they could be used this way. So, effectively I could supply nothing more than a TOC then, right? Unfortunately, our customers like to print the manuals and keep hard copies Hi Simon, Not just a TOC. Each page would h...

Re: SVG graphic performance

Hi Simon, If you've got working PDFs, why not just put them in the Baggage Files rather than try to insert them in the topics? Users could then click on a link in the topic to open them for printing or zoomable viewing. The link could be a plain text link, or a smaller PNG image of the drawing. chee...

Re: SVG graphic performance

All those thousands of objects need to be rendered in real time when the image is displayed or resized... Hi Tim, In practice I have found vector rendering much faster to zoom than resampling large bitmaps. Simon's original request was "When it comes to zoomability and printing, I want to be a...

Re: Understanding HTML Templates

Hi Paul, You can do what you want with the HTML topic page templates, but it gets a bit involved if you are also using a skin. If you just want some identifying header information on a topic page -- "This page is about Product A" -- "This page is about Product B" -- the easiest w...

Re: SVG graphic performance

Hi Martin, is EMF metafile format more complicated to work though? Hi Ethan, Can you clarify what you mean by "complicated to work"? It is just the same as any other image -- you export/save as a file in EMF format from your application, and then insert it as an image in H&M. It's not...

Re: SVG graphic performance

I am using SVG format as a means of getting mechanical drawings (DWF format) into H&M that are also properly zoomable in PDF and HTML outputs. Hi Simon, Have you considered using EMF metafile format instead of SVG? Many CAD programs can export drawings to EMF. It's a vector format and zooms per...

Re: Open a PDF file in an independent pdf reader

In theory, you should be able to control this on the server using the MIME type for the file: application/pdf will cause the browser to do its default PDF thing. application/octet-stream should cause the browser to download the file and ask the user what to do with it. If the user selects Open or Ru...

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

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...
