Re: Shapes question

As a future feature request though, it'd be a nice option to be able to Copy the captured slide (*.png) within HX, Paste it into some other program for editing, then Copy & Paste it back into HX to replace the original slide. Would be much simpler & quicker than unpacking/repacking a Zip archive. H...

Re: Double/triple click drag still not implemented.

Hi Dan,

An ordinary click and drag extends the selection by whole words at a time. What more do you need?

Puzzled.

Re: ebook output problem

Is your Ewriter Help already running? Windows won't let H&M create an .exe if the previous file is running.

Unlike Webhelp, you have to remember to close the previous Ewriter before editing it further.

Re: Floating server license - how does the pricing work?

Hi Tim, I don't need a floating licence, but I'm interested in the mechanism. I understand the process of "pinning" a licence before an intended disconnection from the internet. But what happens in the event of an unintended loss of connection? How does your server know that connection has been lost...

Re: Floating server license - how does the pricing work?

Sorry to be dense -- this sounds as though, if we want 11 people to draw on the FSL, we need to buy 11 H+M individual licenses for each of the 11 local computers. Right?(At any point in time, I can't imagine more than 2 in concurrent use). Hi Dave, My reading of Tim's explanation is that if there w...

Looking good!

I like HM8 so far, especially the new Workspaces feature. Thanks for all your hard work on H&M yet again. :)

One thing -- I noticed the CHM is still accessed via "Online Help". Surely that should be "Local Help"? Most folks would understand "Online Help" to mean Webhelp.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: chm Search tab finds results, but can't jump to them

Hi Chris,

After selecting a search result in a CHM, try clicking the Display button above (or sometimes below) the results.

CHM has a very old clunky interface.

cheers,

Martin.

Re: Deploy HTML to web-site but PNG files does get loaded

Hi Claus,

Glad you found the problem. :)

I'm also using Lazarus to create open-source versions of my Delphi programs. For internet connections I use Synapse, which works great:

Re: Indexing Capabilities in Topic Options

Hi, The way I do it is to publish temporarily my Webhelp without any skin* (make it a separate publishing task), and display it locally in a separate browser window. Select the keyword index, and make the window very narrow to contain only the index. Leaving room on the screen for the H&M editor alo...

Re: Deploy HTML to web-site but PNG files does get loaded

Hi, Your images are not being shown because they are not correctly coded PNG files. Which application did you use to create them? They are quite old, dated 2007. Were they created by an old version of H&M from bitmaps? I have tried to open them in several graphics programs. This is the message displ...

Hi David,

You need to put the PDF file in the Baggage Files section.

Re: Images not shown at 1:1

Just returning to this to add that my function posted above fails in a situation where an <img> element is created with an empty source on loading, to be populated later by scripting. For example some slideshow applications create an array of images and then transfer each one into the visible elemen...

Re: Images not shown at 1:1

Like I said, it is only H&M output that is affected and I've had the monitor for 4 years. Hi Peter, I use this function to prevent images going fuzzy by being enlarged by the browser. It doesn't prevent them shrinking if necessary on smaller devices. It means though that your images will appear qui...
