Firstly wanted to say massive thanks to Alex, Tim and the team - new versions are excellent

One question though

I notice there are no v4 skins specifically stated for using with eWriter? are they coming soon, or is the idea that the new v4 skins e.g. Advanced Compact, Advanced Full, Modern Flexible and Modern Magazine are suitable both for publishing webhelp online and for using with eWriter?

Hi Darren,

We will be providing eWriter versions of the Magazine and Flexible skins in a future update. However, the Advanced Compact skins are not suitable for eWriter because they use some methods that just won't work there: The main problem is search. To make those skins completely frameless it was necessary to remove search from the normal WebHelp page entirely -- otherwise the entire WebHelp would need to reload every time you search for something. It opens in a separate tab and the search results are then linked back to the main tab.
