Standalone EWriter tool updated

Unread post by Tim Green » Fri Oct 07, 2016 6:19 am

The standalone tool for generating EWriter eBooks and help files has now been updated to 1.0.1. This update brings the standalone version up to date with the EWriter publishing features in the current version of Help+Manual 7.

You can download the installer for the updated EWriter tool here:

http://download.ec-software.com/ewriter-setup.exe

Limitations:
  • Some features supported only by Help+Manual, like links to EXE files, still require EWriter source files generated by Help+Manual itself, because the HTML code for the links is different. Even if you generate the source as WebHelp in Help+Manual and then use the standalone EWriter tool to compile the WebHelp to EWriter the links to EXE files won't work because they will be coded differently.
  • You also still need to use Help+Manual for creating EWriter books with a separate viewer and book files. This is not possible with the standalone version.
