Help+Manual 7.3.2 + Premium Pack 3.35 Maintenance Update

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, we have released a maintenance update for Help+Manual 7.3,2 and the Premium Pack 3.35. We encourage you to install this maintenance release over your existing version of Help+Manual.

Help+Manual New Features and Changes

  • Automatic recovery: Help+Manual 7.3.2 includes a new feature to automatically recover unsaved changes after a crash or a power failure.
  • SVG images in HTML Help (.chm): the HTML export options dialog has a new option to optionally convert SVG images to PNG.
  • HTML Help (.chm) and YouTube videos: the standard skins have been modified to avoid Javascript errors with YouTube and Vimeo web videos in CHM files.
  • Webhelp standard skins have been updated.
  • EWriter eBooks: The Premium Pack update now includes a new set of V3 skins for the EWriter format, which can also be used as an alternative to CHM.
  • TidyXML option is now enabled for repositories
  • PDF: anchor hotspots have been moved a little bit higher along the y position to improve deep jumps to topic anchors.
  • Improved Insert Link dialog: the drop-down width for the anchor combobox now has a dynamic width to accommodate even very long anchors
  • Improved list dialog

Known Issues and Bug Fixes

  • TidyXML: if TidyXML was off, protected text was not saved as protected.
  • TidyXML: bug in white-space filter (at XML read) fixed
  • Table editing: splitting a table into 2 separate tables could have led to an error
  • PDF/Print: text with character spacing <> 0 was wrong positioned., strike-through text had strike-through line slightly shorter than the text
  • Multi-user refresh: refreshing secondary TOCs did not work in multiuser-mode
  • Topic editor: topic status combo was not updated after adding a custom topic status  in Config > Common, also fixed: a rare word break bug with Russian texts
  • SVG images in Word/DOCX export: image quality has been improved, the converted PNG will have the actually displayed size of the SVG (or the original SVG size, whichever is larger)
  • Invalid characters in style names: Some characters like the hyphen (-) that can cause problems in CSS style names are no longer allowed when naming styles. In existing styles they will be converted to underscores (_) on publishing.
