Apply nowrap to a string?

I'm looking for an easy way to select a short string and apply nowrap to it? i.e. change all spaces to non-breaking spaces, or CSS white-space:nowrap; It's tedious to change all the spaces manually. I have a lot to do. Ideally such a function could be assigned to a shortcut, or maybe included in the...

4712 or 4713?

Something odd.

My H&M "About" splash says I'm using build 4712. Which is what I remember downloading last. When I check for updates, it reports "You are up to date".

But the build currently on the download page is 4713. :?

Martin.

Re: Search Highlighting Persists in New Tab - Webhelp

Used a keyword to search our published Webhelp, and opened the topic in a new tab. Every instance of the keyword was highlighted, making the topic visually cluttered, with reduced usability. Any suggestions of how to "turn off" the highlighting after the search will be appreciated. Hi Jen...

Re: Move capture rectangle while screencast in progress?

The capture rectangle is automatically locked after the first capture. Like the automatic door-lock in your car. Stop screencast, unlock, then proceed. OK. But in that case there is a bug -- the mouse cursor changes to the Move cursor (crSizeAll) while it is over the red line, and over the green li...

Move capture rectangle while screencast in progress?

Once recording a screencast has begun it is not possible to move the capture rectangle -- which would be very handy. Before recording has begun the rectangle can be moved by grabbing the green lines elsewhere than on the sizing handles. When recording is in progress, hovering the mouse over the red ...

Re: Spotlight shape?

Hi Alexander,

I've made a scruffy attempt to illustrate what I mean. It needs to be smoother and slower, but it shows the idea:

Hi Alexander,

That's great. Thanks for doing that.:)

But can it be animated like other objects? -- the X,Y, co-ordinates aren't changing when you select it and move it.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Spotlight shape?

Would such a spotlight apply to a screenshot only, or more general to a slide? Hi Alexander, I assume it could be applied to anything to which a callout can be applied. A callout can be animated to zoom up from nothing, a spotlight would maybe zoom down from full frame to a small area. cheers, Mart...

Re: Reset rotation?

CTRL+ALT+Arrow Keys rotates in very small increments. 8) Thanks Tim. That increments/decrements the angle in 1-degree steps, without snapping to whole degrees if previously rotated by mouse to a fractional angle. Using SHIFT+mouse uses 15-degree steps, and does snap to the nearest 15-degree multipl...

Re: Spotlight shape?

Hi Alexander, When and under which conditions would it move where? Hopefully in the same was as the animations for callouts, etc. Plus perhaps a "shrink" function which goes down from full-frame to the area of interest. I think that would be very effective in keeping the user focused on th...

Re: Reset rotation?

Hi Martin, if you hold <Shift> while rotating, the angle is constrained to multiples of 15 degrees relative to the original orientation. Thanks Simon, that's great. But 15 degrees is quite a large step. Ideally I would like something finer, or perhaps a field to enter a precise angle. For example 2...

Reset rotation?

A shape can be rotated with the mouse, good, and the angle shows in the bottom status bar (but not in the ribbon?), good. But I can't find a button to reset it to zero? The only way to get back to zero rotation is by fiddling with the mouse until it displays zero (which still might be a tiny fractio...

Re: Spotlight shape?

Thanks Alexander, that's very good. Thanks for the detailed reply. But what I was really looking for was a spotlight as an animated shape, which could move across the slide or close down onto the area of interest. It seems odd to have the Image menu to the right of the Help menu (which is normally t...

Bug: duplicating a slide destroys skin settings

Bug: after duplicating a slide, changes to the skin settings are lost.

e.g.

1. change the player progress-bar colour (Customize button).

2. in the slide list on the left, right click > Duplicate Selected Slide.

3. progress-bar colour reverts to default.

cheers,

Martin.

Spotlight shape?

A form of mark-up which I use often on screenshots and videos is a spotlight effect, with the rest of the frame dimmed: spotlight.png It's very effective at keeping the user focused on the action. Is this available in HX or am I missing the obvious? If it could be animated to move into position or c...
