Re: Adding MetaTags

Then it is up to you to add the appropriate PHP scripts to your templates, of course... 8) Hi Lindsay, But that is optional. A standard HTML web page works fine with a .php extension. Sorry, I don't know anything about .asp files on Windows servers. One point to bear in mind is that most browsers w...

Re: Adding MetaTags

Hi Lindsay, The H&M skins already include cache control meta tags, but it's a constant battle of wits with some browsers. For example Firefox ignores them if the page is loaded in an iframe. I have found the best solution is to use the php file extension option instead of html. PHP files are exp...

Re: generating webhelp with v3 skin

No. That is also absolutely final. There are no tricks, workarounds or exceptions for this. It is an absolute requirement that cannot and will not be changed. Customers have been complaining for years that there are no sub-folders in WebHelp. Now we have implemented them and we are not going to cha...

Re: WebHelp deployment: our server but to the world

The question I have to get answered is: if we place our WebHelp on our server and link to it from our public, Web-based software, will the users of our software have problems with the JavaScript or other content in the WebHelp? Hi Dave, See the first word of my previous post. Here it is again: No. ...

Re: WebHelp deployment: our server but to the world

If we deploy our WebHelp on our server for public consumption, does this mean that our users (who could be using any browser) will have features blocked from them by their browsers? Hi Dave, No. What the scary words mean is that if you open the local published HTML files directly in your browser on...

Re: Question around Save As

Hi Dave, To make a duplicate of the entire project which can be edited as a separate project, I simply close H&M and use Windows File Explorer. Just make a copy of the entire project folder somewhere else, and rename it. All the paths and references in H&M are relative, so it will all work f...

Re: Increase padding around text in TOC

Hi Steve,

The CSS settings are in the Configuration > Publishing Options > Webhelp > Table of Contents template.

Add or increase the padding-left and padding-right settings for hilight1 to hilight6.

regards,

Martin.

Re: I need to export my toc only to RTF

First, one of the main reasons that I got my client to choose this application is that they DO NOT use Word and do not want anything that sits on Word. So that rules out solutions that required Word (in any version). Hi Leah, My feelings about Word exactly. :) So why do you want RTF and which appli...

Re: Graphic Parsing

On image sizing: For people with some residual vision it might be helpful to not limit the expansion of the image to its original size. In some cases it might be better for them to have a much larger image, even if it is a little "jaggy". Hi Tim, They can do that by zooming the browser, e...

Re: I need to export my toc only to RTF

Thanks. That seems pretty complicated for something that is a necessary part of most early review cycles. Hi Leah, Not really, in the context of all the other things you need to do to create a finished help project. In "traditional" H&M (i.e. without skins) there is a simple "no ...

Re: I need to export my toc only to RTF

Hi Leah, Try this: 1. publish your project to Webhelp without any skin. 2. create a new temporary topic. 3. Project > File > Load Topic from File , from the just created hmcontent.html file in your output folder. 4. print that topic, possibly using a PDF generator virtual printer program* to create ...

Re: Rotating an image

I think I know the answer already ("no") but I'll ask anyway. Is there a way to rotate an image *without editing the image itself?* Hi Ed, You can do this in HTML-based output using transform in CSS. So for example: <div style="transform:rotate(30deg);"> <img src="... > </d...

Re: Toggle arrow icons back to front?

Thanks Tonea. That's what is so confusing. The plus/minus icons (as in the H&M CHM help) clearly show what will happen if clicked. The toggle arrows, and book icons (as in https://helpandmanual.com/help/) show what has happened . The GUI experts must have a ruling on this? For me, the only sensi...
