  OLD Sample files for HelpHikes Pro

HelpHikes Pro now includes updated sample files to show new features. For the latest information on additional files, please refer to our web based categorized database of questions and answers.

  Make your own Tips help file with HelpHikes Pro

Perhaps, you know that the functionality of Windows Help files can be enhanced by the use of custom DLLs. This software, HHKUTILS.DLL is a custom DLL that lets you enhance your help files for certain applications. For example, if you created a help file containing Tips and Tricks in many topics, you will be able to present the topics in a random order to the user. Note that this DLL can be used in any help authoring tool which supports these features. But, special sample folders are included for HelpHikes Pro which make the job much easier.

Please download the ZIP file (130,415 bytes). Then, unzip and look at the files README.TXT and HHKUTILS.HLP.

  Different looking jumps under Windows 3.1

This is an old item relevant only to Windows 3.1 help.

Grant Botes had contributed a very nice example of changing the characteristics of the default jumps and references in Windows Help 3.1. He has defined very useful RtfLinkMacros to do this easily in HelpHikes Pro. To see how Grant did it, please download (8,460 bytes). Unzip it to get the source file jmpcolor.wzn and the resulting jmpcolor.hlp created with it.

Many thanks to Grant for making this valuable contribution!
