Re: Export to YouTube

If you want video, use a video program. Trying to create video with it is like trying to eat clear soup with a fork. Wrong tool. 8) Hi Tim, I don't think folks are actually asking for video as real video, certainly not as fuzzy MP4 video. What is needed is a means to distribute Xplains as a single ...

Re: Images not shown at 1:1

I would like the image to show at 100% when the screen zoom is 100%. Hi Peter, You can fix this for your own browser, but it won't work for everyone else. In Firefox, enter about:config in the address bar. Click through the warning and be careful. :) Search for: layout.css.devPixelsPerPx Right-clic...

Re: Mouse cursor change

Hi Ga,

If you right-click on a cursor you can click Change Cursor on its menu and select the hand cursor instead.

cheers,

Re: Tips Icon

I wonder how H&M decides which drive to install the examples in? Hi Simon, The problem is that there is no such location on disk as: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\... It is a Windows virtual folder, which is my objection to using them. There is a single \Documents\ folder, and individual files w...

Maybe you are backing up your documents to OneDrive Hi Simon, Laurel, Thanks, but no I'm not doing that. However I have now found the HM7 stuff at: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\My HelpAndManual Projects\Examples\HelpAndManual7\Graphics Buttons\ So Laurel, try looking there. :) p.s. I don't use ...

Re: Tips Icon

That means you disabled the option to install the sample files when you installed the program. Just run the installer again and make sure you check the option to install the sample files and projects., 8) Hi Tim, That doesn't work for me. I just ran the installer again to check. I have the Graphics...

Re: Text Indent

Hi Kevin, If you want formatted text in an object, the best way is to select the object, then right-click, and Edit HTML Source Code . You can paste in HTML from anywhere -- such as a topic page from H&M or even a nested HelpXplain. I think Alexander is working on a full WYSIWYG HTML editor, but it'...

Re: Spotlight size / Cursor size

Hi Kevin,

While adjusting spotlight size, the actual size is shown in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. If you need to get them the same size.

Re: Page margins (white space) in Webhelp output with PP ski

Hi Ed,

Don't forget also that you can add left and right indentations in your style paragraph settings. Which gives you a bit more control because you can extend to the full page width in places if you need to.

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Praveen,

Open H&M's Help -- if the Premium Pack is installed you will see a TOC entry for it, and the version number. See:

Re: Export to YouTube

So yes, it is possible but not very easy. At least not with freeware. Hi, For a free screen recorder you might like to try the free version of FlashBack Express (it's not Flash): https://www.flashbackrecorder.com/express/ The Recorder component is the same as in the Pro version.

We always had our web help locally since we deliver it with our software product. Hi Christian, Does it work when displayed from within H&M after publishing? If so, you need to include with your software product the HM2GO mini web server utility which EC Software provide free for the purpose. You c...

Re: Wait after last animation

Would "autoplay mode-->Show Duration" do what I'm seeking? On the Slide transition menu? Or does that only affect the length of the transition itself? Hi Hitch, "Transition" applies to the interval between slides, not the display time for a slide. See my previous post. "Autoplay Duration" should I ...

Re: Wait after last animation

If I simply add an element (like a numbering sequence) that is NOT animated, there's no delay available. Or Duration, pause etc. Hi Hitch, If you add an object without applying any animation to it, it simply displays as part of the slide, for the full time that the slide is displayed. cheers, Martin.
