Re: GIT support

Hi Tim,

Visual Studio's version control support has made some members of our team "lazy" and they prefer in-app version control support rather than resorting to the command line or 3rd party tools. Anyway, good to hear that "support for git" will be coming in a future point release.

Re: Double/triple click drag still not implemented.

Hello Martin, In Windows click-drag extending by word is a non-standard UI. The standard UI in most text applications is click drag extends by character and double-click drag extends by word. It does that in word, notepad, Visual studio, notepad++, text boxes in all web browsers, just about every ap...

Double/triple click drag still not implemented.

I've mentioned this before about H&M 7, and was hoping that this standard would be implemented in H&M 8, but alas it's not. Most text editors (including this forum's edit boxes) allow you to double click to select a word and then extend the selection, by word, by dragging left or right. H&M can't se...

GIT support

Just installed H&M 8. Any chance that GIT support will be coming soon? We are transitioning from SVN to GIT and H&M seems to be the last application we use that doesn't have GIT support.

Re: Automatically add file extension to GIF.

Click on Publish and select Multi-page GIF image. Then type into the output file name field: c:\temp\dan. File is saved as dan instead of dan.gif. However if you hit the "..." to get the file save dialog and enter c:\temp\dan in that dialog, it automatically appends the .gif when you click "save" so...

Automatically add file extension to GIF.

When saving as a GIF would it be possible to automatically add a file extension (.gif) if the user leaves one out of the file name? This is typical behavior when using a windows file save dialog, but isn't done when having a separate prompt as HX does.

Adding a blur.

Is there a way to blur parts of an image?

What would be really useful is when capturing, if a new window pops up, is to have an option that automatically blurs the capture area behind the the newly popped up window.

Re: HX MP4 output

The distributable files are listed in the master page. We should perhaps make it more obvious, which files you need to deploy. As for the structure, this is designed to have more than one Xplain in the same folder. Every Xplain has its own HTML page and a sub-folder that matches this name. The sub-...

Re: HX MP4 output

The 2nd is to provide one-off "how-tos" to users who ask how do I something. Outputting an MP4 video would be perfect Hi Dan, My solution to that is to play the HX on my screen and record it to MP4 with a screen recorder. There is nothing to edit, so any screen recorder will do and it's quick. I us...

Re: HX MP4 output

Tim & Alexander, Thank you for the quick responses. I still think there's a problem with #2, 2. Publishing to a file, such as abc.html, seems to create not only abc.html, but a folder named abc and a folder named js. This is not only confusing, but can trigger an error if there's already a folder na...

HX MP4 output

Just purchased HX, couldn't pass up the new user/summer sale :) Some comments / questions about output. 1. Any chance of adding MP4 output so that we can send the screen shots to user? Would also let us add an audio track. 2. Publishing to a file, such as abc.html, seems to create not only abc.html,...

Release notes page on the website gives a 404 error.

FYI, The H&M website's download page: https://www.helpandmanual.com/downloads.html, "release notes link" give a 404 error.

https://news.helpandmanual.com/2019/04/ ... -released/

PS. The HelpXPlain screen shots look great. When can we try it out?

Re: Webhelp link to drop down toggle.

Actually, I've given up on this and decided to create a hidden page that has link and embedded anchors. Then me and the support staff can go to that page and copy the necessary links as needed. Not ideal, and an extra step, but it will work for us.
