We are glad to announce the release of Help & Manual 4.32! This is primarily a maintenance update to correct some issues that a few users have reported.
Changes in version 4.32
Improved font embedding in PDF for Adobe Type 1 fonts
Embedding of Type 1 fonts such as Frutiger did not work in the latest update of the PDF engine used in Help & Manual. This has been corrected in collaboration with the PDF engine programmers.
Sorting of non-alpha characters in PDF index
Sorting of index keywords starting with non-alpha characters like "-" has been improved for PDF export. The headings for entries starting with such characters now also use the first alpha character instead of the non-alpha character.
Spurious PDF page breaks triggered by paragraph settings
In some circumstances spurious page breaks would be inserted in PDF documents if the first paragraph in a topic was set to "Keep lines together".
PDF printing with topics containing more than 100 pages
When printing PDF documents with topics containing more than 100 pages a warning message is displayed. This message now includes a Cancel button enabling you to abort the print job to save paper.
Incorrect deletion of empty lines after embedded topics
In some circumstances empty lines/paragraphs following an embedded topic would be deleted incorrectly, leaving no space between the embedded topic and the following paragraph.
White space between paragraph background and border in PDF
In PDF output paragraphs with both background colors and borders with an offset from the text had additional white space between the background and the border. This was another issue associated with the updated PDF engine.
Errors in table cells spanning more than one row
When table cells spanned more than one row vertically the cell borders in the next row were not painted correctly. This was an issue associated with the recent update enabling page breaks inside cells/rows in PDF output.
Inline text toggles not expanded in print and PDF output
Inline text toggles (text that expands within a paragraph when the user clicks the toggle link) was not expanded for print and PDF output when Print Expanded was activated.
<IFNOT_TOGGLES> condition implemented for HTML export
A new <IFNOT_TOGGLES> condition has been implemented for HTML export as a complement to the existing <IF_TOGGLES> condition. These conditions allow you to include or exclude content in your HTML templates depending on whether or not the current topic contains toggles.
