Re: Wait after last animation

If I simply add an element (like a numbering sequence) that is NOT animated, there's no delay available. Or Duration, pause etc. Hi Hitch, If you add an object without applying any animation to it, it simply displays as part of the slide, for the full time that the slide is displayed. cheers, Martin.

Re: Wait after last animation

Hi Hitch, What you called "animating" a slide is called a "Transition". The slides are laid out on a canvas as in the Overview frame (click the top item in the list). You can drag them around on the canvas, rotate them, etc. The transition defines how you get from one slide to th...

Re: Wait after last animation

Hi Hitch, If you set the spotlight animation to Follow Cursor, the timings are copied from the Cursor. The spotlight is simply linked to it. You need to change the Cursor timings to get the result you want. ("Follow" here means "at the same time" not "take place afterwards&q...

Re: Wait after last animation

but I do not see any place where I can say "this slide should display for X seconds." It seems a no-brainer that this should exist, but I do not see it. Hi Hitch, Make sure you have selected the slide , and not the image it contains. The way to select a slide is via the list on the left, ...

Re: Find Current Topic in Project Explorer that I a am Writi

Hi Dale,

Click the second item in the Project Explorer, showing the project file name (between the "Welcome" and "Table of Contents" lines).

It shows the most recently worked-on topics, with links to them.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Wait after last animation

Hi Hitch, Have you set any animations On Exit ? I don't use any of those, because I don't understand what they are intended to achieve. The slide will jump to the next one before anyone can see what happened. It might be useful for a fade-out animation. All my animations are on slide Entry : hx_slid...

Re: Wait after last animation

p.s. Did you try this control, in the Publish dialog:

hx_autoplay_speed.png

I haven't tried changing it. I don't know how it interacts with the duration settings on each slide. Probably it is a global modifier factor.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Wait after last animation

Hi Hitch, I have the same problem with my users. I write stuff. Hardly anyone reads it. I'm sure Tim feels the same way. There is a way to get Xplains to run continuously, and set a time for each slide, so I don't know what you have set wrong. I will go and have a look now to see what it might be. c...

Re: Wait after last animation

Are you guys saying that I cannot set the duration of display, for a slide ? At all? Hi Kimberley, You need to deselect the Autoplay option for the slide. It will then wait for the user to read the texts. The user clicks the Next Slide icon or the Play icon when they are ready to resume the playbac...

Re: HelpXplain 1.1 Beta with Audio Support

Great!

Thanks for including the voice recorder. That's made it much easier to record a slide voice-over than using other software and creating a lot of audio files.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Using Kraken to reduce images

For regular screenshots without modifications, none of this typically applies. So there should be no conversion and the output result must be bit-identical with the original image that you inserted. Build 1132 implements that. Hi Alexander, That's good. It's important to me to be able to insert wor...

Re: Using Kraken to reduce images

Hi Olivier,

If they are screenshots in PNG format, a good way to reduce the file size is by changing to 8-bit colour. It makes a big difference to file size, without having much effect on the image.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Using Topic ID as variable

bilaai_b wrote:Is there a way to show the Topic ID (found in Topic Options screen) on the help page?

Hi,

Just enter <%TOPICID%> in your topic text.

The ones you are using are for use in the HTML page templates, not topic text. The one above works for both.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Roadmap for HelpXplain

How do you define 'one of the older frameset skins' ? Hi Sue, I meant any of the skins other than the Premium Pack V3 skins, which I don't think will work in TWebBrowser. So any of the native H&M skins, or the Premium Pack V2 skins such as those for EWriter, or no skin at all. In fact I still l...

Re: Developer - Object Link

I did get it to work, You do need to compile to see it show up. How would you use this technique to solve an issue? Hi Terry, Glad you got it to work. What you use it for is down to your imagination. :) In effect it's the Xplain equivalent of having a toggle in an H&M topic. You could also use ...
