Re: Save/Import/Export Search Path

Thanks Simo.
Look brilliant - I will try to implement (but it's going to be AFTER the current deadline) - so, next release.
As a long-term solution for our multiple brandings, this is going to be a real help, I think.

Customizing the Web Skin for a .exe/.eWriter file

Hi 1. A long time ago, I managed to get our company logo and webpage link in to the header of the customized skin we are using (Screen shot attached) . Alas - so long ago that I cannot remember how to do this, nor can I find where it may have been answered in the forums. Please help - I need to chan...

Re: Save/Import/Export Search Path

Hi You said: there wasn't a method to do this because I was thinking in the context of some separate, specific method for this. Sorry, my bad.. :? Me: Is there anything 'wrong' with this method? i.e. It may not be the 'best' solution - but is there any reason why it would not work? You: No, this is ...

Re: Save/Import/Export Search Path

Thanks Tim. Yes, I am guilty of the 'too many folders' crime. Very guilty . . .and I will try to do better. But here are two questions. (I can only describe 'why' in a long rambling explanation - let's skip that!) 1. I output two 'brandings' - each has some shared graphics, but for many, many of the...

Save/Import/Export Search Path

Hi I know I asked a similar question a LONG time ago - and I'm optimistically hoping the answer might be closer. It would help me a lot if I could Save/Export/Import a project's Search Path in the same way that one can handle the variables list. I can achieve the 'Export' by using Notepad++ on a 'cu...

Why does my .pdf show a ''?'' in a link

HI I have a pdf with many internal links. The links should show the ToC numbering and the Topic title. Because I could not figure a way to link directly to the numbering of the .pdf ToC, I made two links - the first where I manually set the relevant ToC number, and the second link with the Topic Tit...

Re: Styles for .ipp objects - or import to HelpXplain

Thanks Tim - I'm on the edge of my chair! Regarding the eWriter - I need to update myself and our team urgently on this - I'll talk to our developers and see what the target machines are on which we install the application - we do have users on various Server editions rather than only simple 'Window...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Hi If you can bear it - back to the .ipp question, please! Since my original question, we have started implementing a new UI and have to update/create many hundreds of screenshots, many with callouts (mostly simple text callouts or outline rectangle/ellipses). These all exist as .ipp files. We can t...

Styles for .ipp objects - or import to HelpXplain

Hi I asked, a while ago, whether there could be some sort of 'style' capability in Impict. I know that the capability is now in HelpXplain - but then I asked the obvious question of whether I could import the .ipps into HelpXplain, etc. etc. and the answer was no :( . For background - we have hundre...

Re: Problems editing a Help&Manual Project (.hmxz)

Hi Tim Thanks for the quick response - that sounds like a clear summary. I'm guessing that the 'network lag' may be the culprit - especially because our system is pretty loaded at the moment as we prepare to move offices, and there is a lot of copying going on as people do backups. I will try moving...

Problems editing a Help&Manual Project (.hmxz)

For a while, I have a symptom that, when going to a topic and selecting anything (text, picture, table etc) using the mouse, the screen of the H&M window goes grey (other windows are unaffected.) I can move the mouse around, click to position it in a new place, etc fine. The symptom only happens whe...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Regarding the possibility of a conversion Tool from .ipp to Xplain: To Tim - I don't want to start any internal wars there, but Alexander said that a one-way conversion capability was already in the HelpXplain wish list :oops: To Alexander - I would like to use the more sophisticated editing capabil...

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

Hi At the risk of sounding like a broken record, please consider putting the .ipp import/convert into an early revision. While everyone else can't wait to play with new goodies, those of us with big existing projects want to change over quickly so we can go forward without creating yet more legacy s...
