Re: Topic Conditions

I run into problems, though, if I need to include or exclude entire rows or columns Hi Rainer, Is this for HTML or PDF output? If you are interested only in HTML, you can do most things with a bit of scripting, inserted using the HTML Code Object function, or via the topic template. For example, if...

Re: Equivalent to Word's CTRL-Y (apply last edit)

Hi Dave,

Don't forget you can always use the accelerator keys. For the Format Painter press ALT, W, F, P in order. Depending on your system settings, you may need to hold down ALT.

The same for any other function. They announce themselves on the ribbon when you press ALT.

Re: Equivalent to Word's CTRL-Y (apply last edit)

Hi Dave,

Have a look at the Format Painter function to apply the same manual formatting repeatedly. See: https://helpandmanual.com/help//index.h ... manual.htm > +Using the Fomat Painter tool

Re: SVG graphic performance

If I were able to rely on the PDF OLE function, that would be a good solution, but its not solid. Hi Simon, I don't understand what is different if you link the PDF file to a PNG thumbnail image on the page? They click it, it opens in a PDF reader, they print it. Just as the OLE option would do. OL...

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: 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...
