Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

But that is not what I want at all. I will try to explain again. I do my image captures at 200% Win 10 scaling on a 4K monitor Hi, I don't think that is making much sense. You mean you are using a setting of 200% in the Windows Display Properties, i.e. 192 DPI for font conversions? I'm also using a...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

I want WebHelp to export my image unchanged from the captured pixel dimensions with a scaling factor other than 100%. Why do I have to specify the scaling as 100% (or 99.90%) when modern browsers can scale down large images just fine and use the extra pixels on HiDPI displays to increase sharpness?...

Re: How to prevent WebHelp from downconverting images

Hi, 192 DPI (dots per inch) is meaningless unless you are intending to print your images on paper in the real world. Display screens are sized in pixels, not inches. DPI screen values are used in order to scale fonts, not images -- fonts are typically sized in Point sizes (1 pt = 1/72nd inch), so a ...

Re: Mouse wheel in Windows10

I thought this was always the default in Windows 10. I've never consciously set it and mouse wheel scrolling has always worked for the window under the mouse pointer for me. Hi Tim, I have never consciously set it either, but something definitely changed after a recent Windows update. Just to be cl...

Re: Mouse wheel in Windows10

Do you mean that the default has changed for 'scroll inactive windows when I hover over them' in Settings/Devices/Mouse? Or has this setting been removed? Thanks Tim. I didn't know such a setting existed, and clearly yes, the default has changed to on, or the setting is a new one. I noticed the cha...

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...

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.

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...
