Premium Pack 4.3 with SharePoint Embedding

Unread post by Tim Green » Thu Sep 02, 2021 7:14 am

We have just updated Premium Pack 4 to version 4.3, with a couple of major improvements and some minor fixes and fine-tuning.

SharePoint embedding

The main change in this update is support for embedding WebHelp in SharePoint using the V3 and V4 skins. SharePoint administrators can now host WebHelp created with these skins on SharePoint site pages. This will also work on the SharePoint iOS and Android apps on tablets and smartphones. See Embedding in MS SharePoint in the Premium Pack documentation for details and instructions.

Other new features

In addition to SharePoint, the new version comes with a lot of fine-tuning changes and improvements. These include
  • Automatic scroll toggle into view in CHM and V2 skins
  • Auto-TOC icon hidden when not needed in CHM and V2 skins
  • Automatic border around embedded WebHelp
  • Improved Copy Config in Toolbox with separate section for colors
  • Configure skins without a header or with a permanent header
  • V3 skins: New header open/close button between TOC and topic

How to get the Premium Pack update

You can download and install the updated version with the credentials you received when you purchased. If you no longer have this please contact support AT ec-software.com (replace the AT with @) and we will help you out. See the Premium Pack product page for more details on Premium Pack 3 and visit our online store to purchase if you do not yet have it.

Important features added since the initial release

If you haven't updated since the initial release you might like to know that the following major changes have been added since then. You can also see the full change log in the online documentation.

Import and export styles
The Premium Pack Toolbox utility has a new Import/Export Styles feature, with which you can import individual text, paragraph and table styles to Help+Manual projects from other projects and style files created with the tool. (In Help+Manual itself you can only replace an entire project stylesheet with another one.)

Edit style repositories (.hmxr)
The Toolbox utility can now also edit style repository projects (.hmxr). This makes it possible to use the new import/export styles tool on these projects as well. In addition to this you can also use the other topics tools on these projects.

Embedding WebHelp from multiple and remote domains
It is now possible to use embedded and field-level help from multiple WebHelp documentation systems on the same web page. In addition to this you can also embed WebHelp hosted on other web servers, not only on the same server as the HTML pages on which you are embedding and displaying the help. This is also supported in the new WordPress plugin.
