Help+Manual 7.3.3 for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

We are glad to announce the release of Help+Manual 7.3,3, which is a free update for all 7.xx users. We encourage you to install this maintenance release over your existing version of Help+Manual.
At the same time we have also released version 3.41 of the Help+Manual Premium Pack with three small but important corrections. See further below for details.

Delayed Execution on Windows 10 FCU

If you have installed the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (FCU), you might notice a general slowdown in some situations, not just with Help+Manual, but with a large range of Windows software including Microsoft’s own tools and utilities. One particular situation, where this can be observed is the publish options configuration page for MS Word export. Opening this page on Win 10 FCU might have taken several seconds, it looked as if Help+Manual had frozen:

Version 7.3.3 fixes this problem and should revert to normal speed.


New Features and Changes

  • Keyword Idex Tool: improved display when searching for a particular keyword
  • Insert Snippet Dialog: remembers the option to insert a snippet inline or on a new line
  • Webhelp full-text search: the default word length limit of 35 characters has been extended
  • Code Editor for Baggage files: support for .PHP and .ASP implemented
  • AuthorIT Import: context numbers were missing in some cases
  • Inline text toggles: when printed expanded, it was possible that the hidden text was inserted twice, depending on certain conditional-text options.
  • MS Word / DOCX Export: small bug with invalid characters in text fixed
  • XML keyword index: when the XML data contained whitespace in second-level keywords, the whitespace was interpreted as a blank keyword

Premium Pack 3.41 Maintenance Update

This update includes these three fixes:

  • Compatibility with new Firefox: A change was needed in the V3 skins to prevent some clickable items from being disabled on Windows touch screen devices in the major new Firefox update.
  • Index entries with multiple references: If a keyword index entry has multiple entries the list is now displayed in a positioned box with scrollbars.
  • Removal of internal window name: An unnecessary internal window name in the V3 skins prevented opening successive URLs to the WebHelp in the same window from a web application.

You can download the Premium Pack update with the link and credentials you received when you purchased. If you no longer have these please contact support and we will send you a copy.
