Re: WebHelp email feedback - from hamburger to page bottom?

Hi Dave, That's an ordinary HTML form. Easily inserted as an HTML Code Object in specific topics. Or in the page template if you want it automatically in all topics (all topics using that page template). But it needs a PHP or ASP file on the server to receive the submission, and send it to you as an...

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

It looks as though I'll have to bite the bullet and manually enter URL-based links to all the applicable areas in the topics. That's going to amount to upwards of 8 manual links per topic on 30+ topics. Plus debugging, thanks to my fat-fingered typos. :( Hi Dave, You could search and replace them a...

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

Do you automate the typing-in of the full URL? Or do you put each one in manually? Hi Dave, I have my last publish open in Edge (it has to be Edge for me because I use PHP files, and Edge is the only browser which will render local PHP files). On my topic page template in H&M I have a link to t...

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

Hi Dave, It's here. Edit the link: hm_link.png missed the part in your message where you said you didn't use a skin. How do you output WebHelp without a skin? Click "remove skin" at the very bottom of the "open skin" panel. Written in haste as I have to go out. cheers, Martin.

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

Well, the new tab idea is most tantalizing, but I can't get it to work in WebHelp. Hi Dave, This is what H&M puts in the internet links for me: <a href="http://www.wyreforest.gov.uk" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" class="weblink"> All working fine here. W...

Re: Icons mystery

Thanks Tim. It's been suggested on another forum that this is a bug in Windows, putting the compression icon in the wrong place on Mondays in February.

Who would have thought that Windows would still have bugs in it after all these years? :)

regards,

Martin.

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

The browser Back works sometimes. Most instances seem to go back to the top of the original topic... but it's academic. Hi Dave, That might depend on which skin you are using and which browser. It always works for me in Firefox and Edge. I didn't realize that I had to select "Internet Link&quo...

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...

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...
