'Allow Edit Picture With > ...' For toggle images

Unread post by Bill from Aus »

Hi
We have a lot of images in our 2000 page help text. Most of the larger images are toggle images, so they click on the smaller image if they need to see the full size.
In the H&M Editor, I can right click on the full size images that have not been converted to a toggle and select 'Edit Picture With > ...' to edit the image. But this is not there for images converted to toggles.
It would be nice if the Right Click on a toggle image still has the 'Edit Picture With > ...' option and would allow edit of the original full size image.
Currently to updated an existing toggle image, you have to Right-click and go to properties, then copy the image path, then open the editor manually and finally paste the path/image name into the editor.

Hi BIll,

I just noticed that you didn't get an answer to this when you originally posted it. Sorry about that -- I'm not quite sure how I missed it. :shock:

To make it even easier, download our new free SnipSVG screenshot and graphics editing program and configure it as Help+Manual's standard graphics editor in View > Program Options > General.

Thanks Tim,
Yes, I have actually just been issued a new computer, and when setting up the Help&Manual, I did set SnipSVG as the default editor.
I do like how with just two clicks I can add the Frame and Drop shadows to my images through the quick format options.
