Different image size in tidy XML

Unread postby Christoph Buecheler » Tue Apr 10, 2018 8:50 am

Hi Forum

I have converted my project to translation-friendly XML. During the transformation, the width and height attributes of images within the topic files were converted to small rectangle values.

Original XML:
<para styleclass="Image Caption"><image src="XXX.png" scale="63.00%" width="407" height="386" styleclass="Image Caption"></image></para>
Tidy XML:
<para styleclass="Image Caption"><image src="XXX.png" scale="63.00%" width="20" height="20"></image></para>

In the H&M Editor, the images are still displayed perfectly. (Maybe only the scale attribute is used?) But when I open the Topic.xml with IE, the images are unusable small.

Is there a way to set all width/height attributes to the correct value without having to double-click every single image in the editor?

Best regards
Christoph

Hi Christoph,

Are you using the current version of HM, which is 7.3.5 Build 4434? If not it's possible that that is the actual problem. Please check and let me know. :)

Hi Tim

I made the transformation on the first of march this year and cannot say whitch version was in use then. Now, I'm using Version 7.3.5 Build 4434 and I still can reproduce the effect on another project.

Best regards

Hi Christoph,

Thanks for the update. I just double-checked this and there does appear to be a problem. It is not being shown in the XML editor in Help+Manual itself, but the XML on the disk is reverting to 20 x 20 dimensions. I will get our developers onto this right away. :?

Hi Christoph,

Update: Help+Manual will automatically correct the values if you make any small change in the topic (like adding a single space somewhere) and then saving it. The graphics will then all be scanned and saved with their correct dimension values.

This error is really only cosmetic: The explicit pixel dimensions are only there for XML previews and will not have any effect on your output or display of images in Help+Manual. 8)

Hi Christoph,

This issue has now been corrected in the current stable beta:

https://www.helpandmanual.com/download/ ... p-v736.exe

Note that the incorrect values only affect browser preview, they are not used for anything else. You can fix a project where the image file references have already been set to 20 x 20 by turning Tidy XML off and saving the project, then turning it on again. 8)
