Premium Pack 2.71 Maintenance Update


Help & Manual Premium Pack 2 has been updated to version 2.71 for Help & Manual versions 7 and 6. This is just a minor maintenance update with corrections for a couple of issues reported by users of version 2.70. The only changes are in the WebHelp skins and the CHM skins. There have been no changes to the Smartphone skins, the iPad and Android tablet skins or the Dual-Mode Classic skins in this update.

How to get the update:

You can download and install the updated version with the same download link and installation password from the mail you received when you purchased your copy of the Premium Pack. If you no longer have this please contact support@ec-software.com and we will help you out.

WebHelp Skins changes:

Problems in Chrome with Index or Search disabled

On some computers and Windows versions WebHelp displayed in the Google Chrome browser would seem to hang or respond slowly when the timed browser cache feature was activated and the keyword index or search tab was deactivated. This has been corrected.

Unicode encoding for mail feedback

The mail feedback function now supports Unicode encoding and should work better with languages with Unicode character sets like Russian, Greek and Asian languages. (This is not supported in CHM because the Microsoft CHM viewer is not a Unicode program.)

Keyword index search improvements

You can now disable and hide the instant search feature for very large indexes, where it could cause unpleasant delays. The search is now automatically reset when you change the search mode (instant on/off, first word, word anywhere, full text).

CHM Skins changes:

Links in graphics hotspots

A problem with links in image hotspots in CHM files on some systems has been corrected. (Clicking on hotspot links would not work.)

Height of topic header

The topic header was not high enough in some cases if the logo image was turned off or smaller than the default image.
