Possible to apply premium-skin feature to existing skin?

Unread postby Elissa Miller » Thu Dec 13, 2018 9:08 pm

Despite not being a developer of any kind, I've been successfully using Help+Manual for years to generate my organization's online help files and I am using the latest version of 7.

Because I am not a developer, even the minor edits I've made to customize one of the default skins required two posts and two helpful answers from Tim Green. However, there's one specific feature in Premium Pack skins that I really want to use--the ability to successfully link to an anchor within a closed toggle table and have the table automatically open. So, I've purchased the current Premium Pack package.

Is there any way at all to "transfer" that premium-skin function into my existing skin? The existing skin is absolutely perfect for our needs in every way except that it does not support links to anchors in toggle tables.

Like every question I've asked in the forums, I realize this is an order of magnitude more basic than any of the current threads (I did mention that I'm not a developer, right?), so thanks in advance for your patience and your help.

Hi Elissa,

Sorry, but I'm afraid that isn't possible. Making this work required a complete rewrite of all the toggle code and that is generated automatically by Help+Manual for the standard skins. :?
