Mouse wheel in Windows10

Windows10 users may have noticed that in one of the recent updates Microsoft have changed the mouse wheel behaviour. Generally this is a Good Thing, except when it isn't. :? There is a lot of discussion about this on the Windows forums, but as usual it seems to be impossible to find definitive infor...

Hi Dave,

Re: Minimalizing Minimalist skin

Hi Dave, In your browser (I use Firefox), right click on, or just fractionally inside the border and then click inspect element . Here's the info for the top box border: hm_border.png You can see that it's on line 191 in the same file. If you double-click on the colour right there #707070 , you can ...

Re: Minimalizing Minimalist skin

Hi Dave, I've just looked at that skin. To change the border round the topic, in the Toolbox go to the Baggage files and open hmwebhelp_main_desktop.css Go to line 363 (assuming I've got the same version as you) in the CSS for: div#topicbox See the line border: 0.154rem solid #707070; Change it to w...

Re: Minimalizing Minimalist skin

I'm in danger of having H+M taken from me... with 89 topics and 14,000 words invested in it... and I'm a seemingly unreachable (and I thought, simple) 0, or CSS setting, or color code #F0F0F0 from giving him what he wants. :cry: Hi Dave, It can't be that difficult just to change a few borders. Whic...

Re: Date stamp in WinHelp output

Hi Dave, You have the wrong title on this topic. You mean WebHelp. WinHelp is the old Windows .hlp format which used to be supported by H&M but is no longer, nor by Windows10. I was quite fond of it - certainly it was much better than the .chm format which we have been stuck with for 20 years. c...

Re: Me, naive-&-ignorant-dept (translation sibling question)

Hi Dave, Hint: When you insert an image from elsewhere into a topic, H&M adds it into the first folder it finds in the search paths. So arrange the search paths with the /IMAGES/ folder first. Normally of course, you will have put the image there before using it anyway. But if not, you don't wan...

Re: Me, naive-&-ignorant-dept (translation sibling question)

Hi Dave, H&M doesn't store any file paths in the project, only file names. I didn't follow your diagrams, but all you need to do is: 1. copy/paste or drag your folders into the desired arrangement. It's best have /images/ and /snippets/ as sub-folders within you main project folder, unless you p...

Re: Webhelp_SlateGrey skin - what is "Contents" icon for?

Hi Dave,

You are looking at the main TOC template.

It will be in the HTML Page Templates > Default

Or at least I assume so (haven't looked).

regards,

Martin.

Re: Webhelp_SlateGrey skin - what is "Contents" icon for?

Hi Dave,

It's the Mini-TOC in the topic. Here you go (scroll down this image):

auto-toc.png

In the PP section in the CHM H&M Help only.

cheers,

Re: WebHelp config On load expand all entries -- doesn't

Age 76? I'm 70 this year. :)

Is this a hobby project? Working to deadlines is for 25-year-olds. For the last 50 years I have simply refused to answer any question which begins with the word "when".

cheers,

Martin.

Here you go:

You do seem to be making heavy weather of everything? :(

Re: Able to change logo in Webskin, but not its hotspot

Hi Dave,

In the Toolbox, click on Baggage Files.

In the list, open the HM_HEADERBOX.html file for editing.

I think the settings to which you refer are on the first line.

Edit it and Save it.

regards,

Martin.
