Re: Need for ideas: "Here's all the info" vs. "Keep it short

But then it's important to get the user back to the simple step-by-step -- exactly at the point when they left to dig into the Concept... Hi Dave, That's what the "Back" button in the browser does. Not the one in the Help, the one above that in the browser. You just need to tell your user...

Re: Icons mystery

Those two blue arrows indicate NTFS compression. You can set it for individual folders with the Advanced... button in the General tab of Properties. Thanks Tim. But what does it mean applied to a program icon? Neither of these shortcuts, or any of their program folders or sub-folders, have the Comp...

Icons mystery

On my Windows10 desktop I have dozens of program shortcut icons. Two of them, and only two, and for completely different types of program, have these double blue arrows in the top corner: blue_arrows.png Any Windows experts here care to explain what they mean? I have drawn a blank. :? thanks, Martin.

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

And you are right, I rarely need to update numeric data in tables. Can't that be automated by a script? Hi Rainer, Not from handwritten notes in a field notebook. :) There's a difference between complaining about design behaviour in the editor, and reporting an actual bug. Failing to conform to Wor...

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

OMG! Never noticed that … because I never use it. Well, our individual requirements differ quite substantially, obviously … Hi Rainer, You obviously don't often need to update numeric data in tables. :) Enter "text1 text2 textWithLink text3" and make "textWithLink" a link to any...

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

but the fact that the same key combination CTRL+DEL sometimes deletes characters to the right and sometimes to the left of the cursor is in my opinion simply a bug and not a feature Hi Rainer, I can't replicate that? :? CTRL+DEL always works forwards for me. I know there are some behaviours in Rich...

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

Hi Rainer, My view is simple. If you want something to work exactly the same as something else -- use that something else instead . I'm sure a usable Help system could be created in Word. I don't know because I never use Word. H&M adopted the RichView editor (back in H&M4) because its intern...

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

Do you happen to know why this highlighting-and-cursor-moving business is handled differently from the Windows non-standard? Hi Rainer, Or alternatively you could ask Microsoft why Word doesn't adhere to the RichView standard? In RichView CTRL+DEL removes a word or a space, one at at time, in the f...

Re: Highlighted text: non-standard behavior

but every single piece of text-handling Windows software I know of, from any manufacturer worldwide, adheres to this non-standard. Hi Rainer, Except those which use the same RichView editor as H&M. Here's a list of them: http://www.trichview.com/applications/ Including some of mine, not listed....

Re: Conditional image folder

As a workaround I have a powershell skript where I first copy the images for one version from their "repository" to the project search path folder, create the document, then copy the next set of images to the search path, call H&M again with the next task and so on. Hi Rainer, It woul...

Re: font-size:95%

Hi, I'm glad someone else doesn't like everything being slightly blurred. It gives me a headache to look at it for more than a few seconds. Admittedly my eyes are getting old. For that reason I have stopped using all the responsive stuff and gone back to fixed sizes. I prefer to leave it to the mobi...

Re: Adding the same variable to every topic page

Hello! I would like to add a Last Modified date to the top of every topic page. I have tried inserting the text variable manually at the top of the topic page but it displays the html code, not the date, when I publish. I have also tried going to the Topic Options tab of the topic page and adding t...

Re: Can you edit a callout in Impict?

I have several screen grabs that I'm added callouts to. But I cannot figure out how I can edit the callouts later. Aren't they a layer on top of the underlying screen grab? What am I doing wrong? :-( Hi Leah, Assuming you saved the file in .ipp format, right-click on the callout and then Edit Prope...

Re: Adding MetaTags

Then it is up to you to add the appropriate PHP scripts to your templates, of course... 8) Hi Lindsay, But that is optional. A standard HTML web page works fine with a .php extension. Sorry, I don't know anything about .asp files on Windows servers. One point to bear in mind is that most browsers w...

Re: Adding MetaTags

Hi Lindsay, The H&M skins already include cache control meta tags, but it's a constant battle of wits with some browsers. For example Firefox ignores them if the page is loaded in an iframe. I have found the best solution is to use the php file extension option instead of html. PHP files are exp...
