Hotspot Graphics (.SHG Files) - Help Authoring Site

SHG files are not recognised by Word at all. You always insert BMP or WMF into Word as 'link to file' graphics. EasyHelp/Web will substitute the reference to a reference to a .SHG file *if* it finds a SHG of the same name in the 'project picture folder'

  1. Put the original .BMP in you document using Insert | Picture | Link to file
  2. Put the .SHG file in the graphics path for your project
  3. EasyHelp/Web sorts out the rest when your Process and Build!

EX5.DOC shows this in action. Very easy once you have done it once.

Note. You use the hotspot editor SHED.EXE to mark areas on your .SHG file as links to other topics.
