Help+Manual News

December Updates


We are glad to announce the immediate availability of Help+Manual 9.02 and Translation Assistant 9.02.

Maintenant, Help+Manual parle fran├žais

Version 9.0.2 comes with an optional French user interface. This is a somewhat risky step for us, because nobody here speaks French and we neither can evaluate the quality of the translation, nor can we provide email support in French. But we wanted to give to a try, though. Please consider the French user interface as “beta test”, you can always switch back to English, if something doesn’t work. The translation is courtesy of Christophe Willefert, a French user of Help+Manual. Translation errors are courtesy of EC Software.

French UI

 

We expect this to be the last update for 2022 and wish all our customers around the world a happy and peaceful holiday season!

 

Help+Manual 9.0.2

  • User Interface: in addition to the default English and German UI, Help+Manual comes with an optional French user interface. Please consider the French version as a beta test. You can switch back to English any time.
  • Word Export: image styles have been implemented for DOCX/Word export. These were missing in 9.0.
  • PDF Export: if a topic anchor was placed on an empty line, this line became zero height in print.
  • HTML Help (.chm) Export: the new scripts in version 9 caused an error on older Windows versions prior Windows 7.
  • Topic Editor: improved mouse hints for images formatted with an image style
  • DeepL Plugin: critical bug fix, the texts &lt; &gt; and &amp; were shortened to their unescaped value (< > &) and therefore lost in the translation process.
  • PDF Snippets: PDF files with special non-ASCII characters could not be loaded
  • Publishing tasks: in the variables overwrite tab, some optical glitches have been fixed. When one or more of the variables in the list was overwritten, after a reload of the variable list, the very last variable in this list was also flagged as “overwrite” no matter if the value was different or not.

 

Translation Assistant 9.0.2

  • Topic Editor: improved mouse hints for images formatted with an image style, CTRL+A for select all implemented.
  • DeepL Plugin: critical bug fix, the texts &lt; &gt; and &amp; were shortened to their unescaped value (< > &) and therefore lost in the translation process.
