After that, some charges may apply for frequent callers.;XG°L; D€€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿGet updates by a unique scheme:Those of you who don't know the difference between an update and an upgrade should understand this concept. Usually an update is released when major bugs are found in the product and are to be immediately made available to the users. Updates are usually FREE. An upgrade is released when the next version contains lots of improvements over the previous version. Upgrades are usually charged as they represent considerable effort by the developer to improve the product.ëuJÂO' €×€‚H€‚‚ÿWhile the above distinction may be clear for many slow changing programs, with WhizNotes, a next version number is usually an upgrade as it contains lots of improvements. The reason is that the mere concept of WhizNotes itself generates many new ideas. It's our policy to give next upgrade FREE. However, you can not determine by just the version number whether this is a FREE update or upgrade for you. Instead, leave it to us. All you have to do is to get the next shareware version and run its Setup program. If you are eligible for a FREE update, Setup will update your registered version for FREE. If it determines that you must pay a special discounted upgrade price to get the new disk or manual, it will give you a message accordingly.f5°L4‚1 0€k€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿThis way yoÂO4‚Âu can get update/upgrade notifications at the low cost (or no cost) of a shareware version.

The only nominal cost involved for you is to get the next shareware version from any of the shareware vendors or BBSs.

Do not lose those precious thoughts away! Give your imaginative mind the proper writing tool that it deserves. Give it WhizNotes and see your productivity soar as never before!Welcome to the world of WhizNotes:WhizNotes is a Windows program that can be used on Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. Once you start using WhizNotes, you might wonder how you ever managed without this versatile tool. After knowing more about WhizNotes, you will find that it does not fit into any single category of programs that you have known so far. It may look like a PIM (Personal Information Manager) at first glance. But, it is also a research tool, Windows Help generation tool, an organizer, a study aid, a thinking aid, and so on. Its variety of uses are only limited by your imagination.~QùI2€- (€£€‚H€‚€
€‚ÿLet us take an example of a document preparation process that is starting from scratch. We all know how painful it can be to prepare that first draft of a document. You may have all the ideas on how to go about writing that document but all your thoughts seem tangled to begin with. WhizNotes helps you overcome this inertia effectively and easily. How? It lets you classify your information into separate topics instantly. WhizNotes provides powerful topic management facilities.

€‚‚‚ÿWhen you start writing, what seems to be more important to you: the text content of your document, or its appearance?You will agree that the text content is more important in the initial research phase of a writing project. After all, the text content is the soul of a document. If it is not thought out properly then no matter what you do with the document's appearance, it would not be effective.When you begin to write, your foremost aim is to put your creative thoughts into words. You are not worried about the appearance of the document at this point. Rather, you want an uninterrupted flow of thoughts to your text. ;O‡N4 6€€‚H€‚‚ƒ‚€€‚‚‚‚‚ÿThis is also true when you are learning a new subject and making notes, planning something, or just involved in creative writing or thinking.Creativity and randomness:Preparing a document from scratch is a creative process. You must have noticed that these thoughts occur to you in a random manner.For instance, when you are working on one part of the document, you may suddenly get an idea about the same or an altogether different subject. Also, while studying a particular topic, in a flash, you may solve an earlier problem that had been nagging at the back of your mind. Well, the ways of a human mind are mysterious. It seems to work in the background, that too on multiple problems at a time. How can you cope with this train of random ideas effectively?vEŠď1 0€‹€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿFirst of all, it is important that you are able to record these ideas as and when they occur. That is not enough! You should also be able to group, identify, retrieve and print your random notes easily. Most of us resort to bits and pieces of paper when dealing with such problems. Isn't it an era to expect more from your computer? Do word processors really help you in this creative phase?You will notice that most of the modern writing tools and sophisticated word processors tend to concentrate on only one aspect of documentation: its appearance and appearance only.°zN€Á6 :€õ€‚H€‚‚‚€
€€€‚‚ÿA nuď€Á¾†mber of excellent word processors are available today. But, unfortunately, there is not much help around when it comes to preparing the document's soul: its subject matter. When recording the random pieces of information or ideas, we may often take help of the good old pen and paper. Why don't we use a simple text editor like Notepad? There may be many reasons:1ýď±Ã4 6€û€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·Because the underlying operating system supports limited number of characters in the filename and we won't be able to recognize our ideas if we keep each one in a different file. Moreover, certain special characters are prohibited in the filename. Note that new Windows'95 supports use of long file names but it only solves part of the problem. There is no way to link information with hypertext jumps.·It is even more of a problem to group these cryptic file names and remember where we kept them. m1€ÁÆ< F€c€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·Printing or looking at all of them at once as a single entity also requires more effort.·The methods to organize these pieces of information are not very convenient under the operating system, especially when you have to link one information with another.·Even if you use some of the file system utilities that allow you to assign a descriptive text to your files, it does not help when all these windows are open for editing in a program. You still have to manage these windows by recognizing file names in the titles, which is a painful process.ã±Ã2È1 0€Ç€‚H€‚‚‚‚‚€€‚ÿSo what do we end up doing? We usually give up and try to work in a single large document file. This forces us to think in a way that is just not the way we think.Why doesn't your computer help you when it can do more? Certainly, it can do better than those pieces of paper! Well, you need not be frustrated any more. WhizNotes comes to your help with powerful topic management capabilities. It gives you maximum flexibility in organizing your thoughts.A word on outlining:¢{ÆÔÌ' €÷€‚H€‚‚ÿAlthough WhizNotes can also be used for single-level outlining, its primary use is different and precedes that of an outliner. There is a fine line between the research and the outlining phases of your writing project. The research phase belongs in your creative mind, whereas outlining is more of a rational process where you have already selected what ideas belong and what don't belong, and you are trying to prioritize them in a sequence and in a hierarchy. According to many creative writing authorities, you should not engage in outlining too soon, otherwise your first draft is going to suffer. Instead, you should give equal importance to all your random ideas occurring in the research phase with no sequence assigned to the notes whatsoever. In WhizNotes terms, you will be placing each of these ideas in a different topic and will keep the topics in the sorted order. As your research progresses, with time to nurture them--many of these ideas will take a better shape in your creative mind, and you will also gather some new ones. This is the phase where WhizNotes is extremely useful, and there is no other program quite like it.Î2Èæ8 >€ €‚H€‚‚€€‚‚ãÿ$ØΉ‚‚‚ÿUsing WhizNotes to author a help system:If you think help files are only created by programmers for providing online help, you are severely limiting your point of view. You should look at Advantages of Help Generation.When you are writing a help system you will feel an even greater need for creating information in pieces and by topics. Also, you will constantly need to establish jumps between your topics and to move from topic to topic to verify the need for the explicit relationship that you created. WhizNotes makes it incredibly simple to do that by allowing you to drag and drop topic names on top of other topics. This inserts jump statements which allow you to move from topic to topic by double-clicking on them. Later when you creatÔÌ澆e the Windows help, these statements are converted into Windows hypertext jumps. The ability to create information in pieces and reorganize it in pieces is vital for any help authoring. Many so called help authoring tools fail to simplify this most important aspect of help writing. They are using a different paradigm; they require you to remember and pre-plan lots of information about your topics, and are often used in the later stages when you have completed the most painful groundwork for your help writing--planning your topic contents and the relationship between them. WhizNotes helps you right from the early stages of the help development: the stages that require a major and most painful chunk of your total effort.`*ÔÌF6 <€T€‚H€‚‚€€‚ƒãLèa‰‚‚ÿAlso see:Features of WhizNotesEæ‹1.ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ‹tWhat is auto-indent?éŸFtJ b€?€‚H€€‚€‚€€€€€€€€€‚‚ÿWhat is auto-indent?if auto-indent is on and you press Enter at the end of a line to go to the next line, the caret is positioned aligned with the first non-blank character on the preceding line. This is called auto-indent as it indents the next line at the same level as the preceding line. It is very convenient for any type of text editing.

In other words, it is a note that you want to identify by a distinct name. WhizNotes allows you to keep related topics in a single WhizNote file where they can be easily identified and accessed.WhizNotes does not restrict you in any way to choose names for your topics. Topic names can be as long as 255 characters, and can contain embedded spaces and special characters. So, even a descriptive phrase can be a topic name. Once you get this flexibility to choose the names that you want, you will never want to be without it.ªï£ \ †€U€‚H€‚€€‚‚ãzÚk±‰‚ã–3얉‚ãïL°‰‚㡫ĉ‚ãjrs‰‚ãL8Ší‰‚‚‚‚‚ÿAlso see:What is a WhizNote file?Creating a new topicOpening a topic for editingRenaming a topicDeleting a topicOperations on multiple topicsIì 1‡ÉL‰

Otherwise, you may skip the rest of this topic.Changing the name of the help compiler file that is used:Let us assume that the name of the new released help compiler executable is HCP.EXE. Before doing help generation in WhizNotes, you must use Windows File Manager to associate the file extension HPJ with HCP.EXE.

The file name is WHIZNOTE.REC and it is located in the WhizNotes program directory.Here are the steps to use it to simplify your text entry:p“ˆÀŒZ ‚€-€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚€ €ƒ€€€€‚€ €ƒ€€€€‚ÿ·Start the recorder program and open the file WHIZNOTE.REC from the file menu.·You will see that it contains predefined macros for entering WhizNotes statements: [~bold..], [~italic] and a few other statements. Once you open this file in Recorder, the macros are ready for use in WhizNotes.·For example, select some text which you want to be bracketed by a [~bold...] statement. Then press Ctrl-B which is the short-cut key for running the macro BOLD. You'll be delighted to see how that simplifies your typing.nGPŠ.' €Ž€ȂH€‚‚ÿHere are short-cut keys for macros predefined for you in this file.ëŠÀŒŽa €€P‘€:‚H€ €ƒƒƒ‚€ €ƒƒƒ‚€ €ƒƒƒ‚€ €ƒƒƒ‚€ €ƒƒƒ‚€ €ƒƒƒ‚ÿ·Ctrl-BBold·Ctrl-IItalic·Ctrl-lStart bulleted list·Ctrl-nStart numeric list·Ctrl-mItem·Ctrl-eEnd listÒ‰.÷ÀI `€€‚H€‚€€€€‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿNote: Remember that these macros can only be used in WhizNotes. If you switch to another application, be sure to disable the Option-Shortcut keys in the recorder, otherwise you may see strange results. Also, you can change the shortcut keys for these macros in recorder.Keep recorder running for convenience:If you like this feature, it is better to always run Recorder when using WhizNotes. To add iŽ÷Àևt to a program manager group, simply drag the file WHIZNOTE.REC from File Manager onto a group and an icon will be inserted for you. For convenience, change properties of the icon in Program Manager to start the Recorder minimized.㳎ÚÁ0 .€g€‚H€‚€€‚‚‚‚ÿHow to define your own macros:Here is a brief description of steps to define a macro like BOLD. For details, please look at the description of Recorder in Windows manual.0ý÷À
Ä3 4€û€PÈ:‚H€ƒ‚ƒ‚ƒ€€‚ÿ1.Start the Recorder program as described above.2.Place the caret anywhere on a WhizNote topic. This is just to indicate that the macro is for use with WhizNotes.3.Now go to the recorder and select menu Macro-Record. A dialog box will come up that will allow you to define the shortcut key and a name for the macro. As soon as you press start, you should see the recorder minimized and the caret on the topic window. The icon for recorder will be blinking to indicate that the recording has started.X0ÚÁbÄ( €`€PÈ:‚H€ƒ‚ÿ4.Now press the keys in the following order:)
Ä‹Ä& €€ȂH€‚ÿ­obÄ8Æ> J€ß€P‘€:‚H€ƒƒ‚ƒƒƒ‚ƒƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒƒ‚ƒƒƒ‚ÿ1.Shift-DeleteThis means the macro will first CUT the selected text when run.2.[~boldThese characters will be typed.3.SpaceThis is to separate bold statement from the following text.4.Shift-InsertWe are pasting back the text that we cut.5.]This is the closing bracket.6.Ctrl-BreakThis will stop the macro recording. Now you can save the macro.‰U‹ÄÁÈ4 6€«€ȂH€‚€€€€‚ÿNow you can test the macro to see that it works. This way you can enter more macros in the file WhizNote.rec. You can make more such files for even other applications but remember that at one time only one recorder file can be used. Remember that you have to first start the recorder with the proper file before using it in an application. It is better to place an icon for Recorder with your favorite recorder file in the Startup group of the program manager so that it is always available for you when needed. You can enable and disable its macros by using the menu Option-Shortcut keys.;8ÆüÈ- *€€ȂH€‚€€‚ÿCaution:Ò—ÁÈÎÊ; D€/€P‘€:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·For your macros, choose a shortcut key that is not already defined as an accelerator on the WhizNotes menu, otherwise the accelerator may stop working.·If you add more macros to the Whiznote.rec file, better save it elsewhere or change its name so that you can restore it. This is to prevent losing your new macros if you were to reinstall WhizNotes as the setup program will overwrite the file.5 üÈË, (€€ȂH€‚‚‚‚‚‚‚ÿU$ÎÊXË1+ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ#X˦ˈTemporary files created by WhizNotesN(˦Ë& €P€€€‚ÿTemporary files created by WhizNotesÝXËÃÍ@ N€»€‚H€‚€‚€€€€€€€‚ÿIt is good to know that WhizNotes creates temporary files in a subdirectory of your working directory. Hence, it is best to ensure that the working directory, that you specify for WhizNotes in your Program Manager or other shell, is on a hard disk. By default, WhizNotes Setup sets up the working directory to the same directory where WhizNotes executable program is installed. But you can always change it in the Program Manager by using the menu File-Properties.‘^¦Ë`3 4€½€‚H€‚€€€€‚ÿYou should know that the temporary files are created in the working directory under a subdirectory named WHIZTEMP. Further, more subdirectories with names like NTWORKAA.AAA, NTWORKAA.AAB,... are also created in this WHIZTEMP subdirectory. You should never delete such directories when WhizNotes is running, as you may lose any changes that you are making. But if WhizNotes is not running, and you find such directories then it means that WhizNotes could not cleanup the temporary files in its last run due to some prÃÍ`Ëoblem, usually a hang. In that case, you can delete these subdirectories yourself.(Ã͈% €€‚H€‚ÿY(`á1±

For example, if you enter /* TOPIC */ as the delimiter line then WhizNotes will put such a line in the output text file whenever it starts writing a new topic. Of course, if you want, you may not choose to put any delimiter by leaving the line empty in the dialog box.Delimiter is especially useful, if later you want to import the same file back into a WhizNote. Please also note that this is the only option which you should use on this dialog box if you foresee reimporting this text back into a WhizNote file. If you use any of the following options then topics may not be imported exactly as they looked before exporting.)"g& €€ȂH€‚ÿk:>Ò1 2€t€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·Break paragraphs into lines at a specified column:ægá) €Í€ȂH€‚‚‚ÿYou can word-break paragraphs into lines at a specified column.

Import itself is a fairly advanced operation. You should clearly understand what happens here. Hence, the following discussion attempts to give you lots of details on finer points of importing. For a first reading, you may skip the details as necessary.A delimiter line:First of all please look at What is a delimiter to understand the meaning of a delimiter line. When importing topics from a text file, you must enter a delimiter line so that WhizNotes can separate out the topics. Once you specify a proper delimiter line, the import feature will import topics into the WhizNote window.,÷P ‘A5 8€ï€‚H€‚㐢v ‰‚‚ã^Ík‰‚ÿPlease note that if a WhizNote has already been exported to a text file with delimiters then it is ready for impY‘A³ ort automatically. Try it out. See the topic Exporting Selected Topics to a Text File for details on how to export.If you are taking an external text file and want to break it into topics then, and only then, you need to do some extra work to insert your delimiter and topic names at the proper places in the file. Please also see Knowing a little programming helps when importing.ëY«D/ ,€×€‚H€‚€€‚‚‚ÿJoin lines to form paragraphs:This is an extremely useful feature when importing text prepared by non-word-wrap editors which introduce a hard carriage-return character at the end of each line of a paragraph. If you were to rejoin these lines manually, it is a tedious process, as you must have realized by now when using previous version of WhizNotes. Although it is difficult to find out which lines can be joined, WhizNotes uses a special technique to recognize the lines belonging to a paragraph. Of course, it may not always work, especially, if left margins are present in the text file in the form of spaces. That is why, after performing any import, you should examine the imported topics to correct any undesired joining of lines.9‘AäG7 <€€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚€€‚ÿThose of you who are used to preparing a lists of items with a hyphen in the first column will be delighted to know that WhizNotes does not join items of such a list. Append topics with duplicate names:What happens when a topic name to be imported already exists in the WhizNote file? Well, you have two choices: the default behavior is that WhizNotes will make up a new topic name by appending a sequence number for the new topic. However, if you check this box, WhizNotes will try to append the new topic's text to the already existing topic. If it runs out of space for a topic, it will create another similar topic name and continue. This is very useful for making topics out of email messages based on the subject where a subject may repeat quite often.À}«D¤HC V€ú€‚H€‚€€‚‚ãs’‰‚㐢v ‰‚ã¬ò\‰‚‚ÿAlso see:Importing whole text files as topicsExporting Selected Topics to a Text FileTips for the Power UserU$äGùH1ÿ’ &ùHGI!€Importing whole text files as topicsN(¤HGI& €P€€€‚ÿImporting whole text files as topics

You can use this feature for several purposes. I use it often to take advantage of the convenient WhizNotes printing. I can drop all my source files on a WhizNote window, rename them to more descriptive names and rearrange their order. Then I get a neat printout from WhizNotes with a table of contents at the end. You may find other uses for it as well. Just to let you know, the large files are purposely split into multiple topics at less than maximum topic size, so that you can add more information to these topic-pieces. The sequencing of the pieces uses a special numbering convention with enough gaps, so that you can insert more pieces. Although you may not want to write these pieces back to form the original file, you can do so if you select them all and then export with a blank delimiter line and the option Do not export topic name.œ`K!€< H€À€‚H€‚€€‚‚ã¯Öm‰‚㐢v ‰‚‚ÿAlso see:Importing topics from a text fileExporting Selected TopiyO!€¤Hcs to a Text FileX'yOy€1ˆj†ÿÿÿÿ'y€ʀ!‡Exporting selected topics in RTF formatQ+!€ʀ& €V€€€‚ÿExporting selected topics in RTF format{9y€EƒB R€s€‚H€‚€‚€€€€€€€‚‚‚ÿYou can export a WhizNotes document in the Rich Text Format using this feature.

You create such files with the help of WhizNotes; they have the extension ".WZN". It is up to you to group any topics you want into one WZN or WhizNote file. This way you don't have to remember each of your topic names. All you need to remember is the WhizNote file name that serves as a folder name.A topic within a WhizNote file can be any independent text note that you want to recognize by name. Please also note that topic names appear in sorted order in the list of topics so that you can easily locate them by name. Of course, you have the option of rearranging the sequence of your topics if you uncheck the menu item Edit-Sorted list of topics.´„°ÄfÈ0 .€ €‚H€‚€€‚‚‚‚ÿExample:A WhizNote file "WEEKREPS.WZN" may contain various weekly reports as individual topics, having the following names:T²ÇõÈ; F€¨€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·01/02/93 - Weekly report (sent on 01/05)·01/09/93 - Weekly report ·...ƒRfÈxÊ1 0€¥€‚H€‚‚‚‚€€‚‚ÿAs you can see, the ability to choose any topic name and to group these topics makes WhizNotes extremely useful.

Let us look at the features of WhizNotes at a glance.Choose any name for your topic:Flexibility in choosing topic names is one of the most convenient features of WhizNotes. After using this facility of descriptive and clear names, you will never go back to keeping your text in cryptic filenames on the disk.ÝÐ1 0€»€‚H€‚‚‚‚‚€€‚ÿWith WhizNotes, you can make topics having very long names, up to 255 characters long. Also, there is no restriction on the set of characters that you can use in the topic names. This flexibility in choosing names can be put to hundreds of different uses. For example, if you are a programmer you may as well make function prototypes as your topic names to facilitate direct access to the documentation for your function library. Easily group related topics together:'öú/1 0€í€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿWhizNotes also provides a convenient grouping facility. You can combine related topics into a single file. Such files are called WhizNote files. One WhizNote file may contain many topics and you can have different WhizNote files for different subjects. Easily locate a topic:The WhizNote file window lists topics in a sorted order. This makes it easier to locate a topic. You can choose to view the list of topics sorted by topic names or you can rearrange the topics in any desired sequence.àH

Then you can double-click on such jump statements to move to the inserted topic. Later if you convert your notes into help, these jump statements are converted into Windows hypertext jumps.Drag and drop topics from one WhizNote to another:¦e/î
A P€Ë€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚ãt‰‰‰‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿYou can have multiple WhizNote files open at the same time and you can copy topics from one WhizNote file to another by just dragging and dropping the topic names. Use flexible Multiple Document Interface:WhizNotes provides the standard Multiple Document Interface similar to many applications. Hence, you can learn it quickly and start using it immediately.Help Generation:If you have a Windows help compiler, you can convert your WhizNote files into Windows hypertext help. Creating jumps from one topic to another is as easy as a simple drag and drop. In fact, this WhizNotes help has been created by exclusively using WhizNotes along with the Windows help compiler. No other word processor was required! If you have ever tried to create Help files before, you already know how time consuming it is. WhizNotes makes Help creation incredibly simple.rIH
lA) €“€‚H€‚‚‚‚ÿAlthough there are other help authoring tools available, there is a big difference. They provide little help in the most difficult task of help authoring: research and topic organization. Most of them require the use of a separate RTF editor like Microsoft Word; again, word processors are not text management tools, but text presentation tools. With WhizNotes it is different. WhizNotes primarily addresses text organization and topic management. It will save your valuable time when î
lAKyou start your help authoring project for researching and establishing your topics. Help generation is a side-feature of WhizNotes, and it does not require the use of any other RTF editor! Of course, you can use one in addition to WhizNotes to improve upon your work by using WhizNotes export capabilities. WhizNotes does not restrict you in any way.(î

Ù‹„Շ4 6€³€‚H€‚€‚€€€‚ÿWhen you want to import topics from a text file in such a way that certain portions become separate topics then how can WhizNotes identify the boundaries of these topics? First of all, the text file should have multiple topics in such a manner that each topic name appears on a separate line by itself and the text for the topic appears on the following lines. But how can WhizNotes recognize the end of the topic text and the line containing the next topic name? For this purpose the delimiting line is used. Try to understand that the text file must have a unique identifier line preceding each topic name. Otherwise, it is not possible for WhizNotes to make out the end of one topic and the beginning of the next one.=êȄŠS t€Õ€‚H€‚‚‚‚‚€€‚‚‚‚‚€€‚‚‚‚‚€€€€€€‚ÿFor example,Your text file may look like this:/* A TOPIC */First Topic Name......text for the topic.../* A TOPIC */Second Topic Name......text for the topic...Here, the line /* A TOPIC */ identifies that a new topic is starting, and the next line contains a topic name. Such a line is called a delimiter line. In above example, the line containing /* A TOPIC */ is a delimiter line. A delimiter must be present in the text file to use the import topics facility.k6Շ}Š5 :€l€‚H€‚€€‚‚ã¯Öm‰‚‚ÿAlso see:Importing topics from a text file b1Šߊ1ýÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ5ߊ:‹ÀKnowing a little programming helps when importing[5}Š:‹& €j€€€‚ÿKnowing a little programming helps when importing‡WߊÁ0 .€¯€‚H€‚€‚€‚‚‚ÿWhen splitting external files into topics for importing, knowing a little programming will help you a lot. For example, suppose you have a collection of email messages where you want to make the subject a topic name. But the subject actually appears on the third line , whereas you want the topic itself to include the first line which contains FROM part of your email message. If you know basic programming, you can write a program that takes the third line and prepends it with a delimiter before the mail message. Once you do that, your mail messages can be imported as separate topics.Ù:‹ޏD V€³€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€‚‚ãál®k‰‚ã¯Öm‰‚ÿEven if you don't know programming, you can perform some tricks to insert delimiters and topic names with Windows accessory Recorder and a text editor that can edit large text files. The hint is to use the clipboard. Try it out and if you can't do it, send me a email message and I might help you there. If enough users require it, I might include the details of this trick in the documentation.Also see:What is a delimiterImporting topics from a text file(ÁÀ% €€‚H€ޏÀ}Š‚ÿ[*ޏmÀ1D °«‡6mÀÁÀÔÉHow to insert bitmaps into your help filesT.ÀÁÀ& €\€€€‚ÿHow to insert bitmaps into your help filesŒ^mÀMÁ. ,€¼€‚H€‚€‚€‚‚ÿYou can insert bitmaps (pictures) into your text with the following bitmap statements:R!ÁÀŸÁ1 2€B€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·[~ BITMAP bitmapfilename]f>MÁÂ( €|€ȂH€‚‚‚ÿTo insert the bitmap at the current position in the text.V%ŸÁ[Â1 2€J€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·[~ BITMAPLEFT bitmapfilename]‹cÂæÂ( €Æ€ȂH€‚‚‚ÿTo left justify the bitmap.

But they should start using the new BITMAP statements as they are easier to remember.Bitmaps with hotspots:There is another amazing tool in your Windows SDK called HotSpot editor SHED.EXE. Hotspot Editor allows you to edit your bitmaps to include hotspot links in them. When a user clicks on a hotspot link, he can jump to a hypertext topic related to that hotspot. This can be very useful to provide proper help for different parts of a picture.'ÃÆìÉd –€‹€‚H€‚†"€‚‚€€‚‚â ` ‰â ` ‰€€â ` ‰€€â ` ‰â ` ‰‚ÿFor example, click on this bitmap to get a message. For details, look at the help documentation for SHED.EXE. Please note that when defining hotspots for your bitmaps, you will need Context strings that WhizNotes assigns to the required topics. For obtaining the Context strings, simply select the option to generate the C header file when creating help. In the generated .INC file, you will find the Context strings for each topic as the identifier following the #define statement. Please note that WhizNotes generates meaningful Context strings so that they are easy to identify; moreover, you can override these Context strings if you don't like the ones generated by WhizNotes.(…ÆÔÉ% €€‚H€‚ÿR!¬É&Ê1‡ äD 7&ÊqÊ·Making bulleted and numeric listsK%ÔÉqÊ& €J€€€‚ÿMaking bulleted and numeric lists¸ƒ&Ê)Ë5 8€€‚H€‚€‚€€€‚‚ÿTo make up the bulleted lists in the generated help, you use the following statements, each on a separate line by itself:vJqÊŸË, (€”€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒƒ‚ÿ·[~STARTLIST]To start the list.

Although it is not WYSIWYG, you will like this way to prepare lists once you start using it. There are no irritating hidden control characters or indentation markers to deal with, and the text you type as items is free format text. To specify a numeric list, simply use [~STARTLIST NUMERIC] instead of just [~STARTLIST].For an example, see the sample WZN file.ÁƒcÍX> J€€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€‚‚‚‚ÿSaving key strokes when entering WhizNotes statement‹ÏXÔÉs:You'll find a file Whiznote.rec in WhizNotes' program directory.

What you have to do is to make a special topic named ~HelpAttributes and define a GlobalHelpOptions statement using the statement syntax given below. Only one GlobalHelpOptions statement is allowed in a ~HelpAttributes topic.Syntax for specifying topic specific attributes:GlobalHelpOptions {ó Ô
P n€‡€‚H€ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚ƒƒ‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿ ContentsTopicName = "Contents",StartingContextNumber = "" RTFBeforeTopicTitles = "",RTFAfterTopicTitles = "",CustomRtfHeaderInfo = "",CustomHpjFile = "", }ContentsTopicName:The only relatively simple attribute here is ContentsTopicName that allows a foreign language user to specify a different topic as the Contents topic name. WhizNotes will interpret the contents of that topic as the help Contents.LÿÁ ,@M h€ÿ€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€ã‰€€€€‚ÿStartingContextNumber:You can use this attribute to control the range of context numbers generated for the help topics in C header file (INC file). You may want to do this when you are providing context sensitive help and want to force assignment of context numbers to some help topics by using a HelpTopic statement (see Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topics). If you do not use this attribute then the default value used by WhizNotes is the constantÔ
,@ê 0x100 or hexadecimal 100.ÉÔ
HCS t€“€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€€€€€€€€€‚ÿAdvanced attributes:All other keywords are for advanced users. You can use them only if you know RTF well enough and also know how to customize an HPJ file. For example, you can use a different format for the topic titles by using RTFBeforeTopicTitles and RTFAfterTopicTitles. You can replace the whole RTF header to provide your own font table, color table etc. See how to do that in the sample file advhelp.wzn. This, together with your own RTF macros, can give you full control. If you specify a CustomHpjFile, WhizNotes will copy it and use it instead of generating one for you. So you are responsible for making sure that it complies with WhizNotes naming requirements and other features.`+,@¨C5 :€V€‚H€‚€€‚‚ãø¨Ó£‰‚‚ÿAlso see:A note on quoted values< HCäC1ýÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ:ÿÿÿÿäC¥DWindow menuÁ¨C¥D2 2€€‚H€€‚€‚€‚‚ÿWindow menuThere is a new option to minimize all topics on the Window menu.

No special software is required to look at these help files.íÅGFŠI( €‹€‚H€‚‚‚ÿWith WhizNotes, help files become so simple to create that they assume an important role.

Creating jumps from one topic to another is as easy as a drag and drop. In fact, what you are reading now has been created by exclusively using WhizNotes along with the Windows help compiler.

WhizNotes makes this process incredibly simple.Ï»L0‚K d€Ÿ€‚H€‚ãˆp°þ‰‚‚ãi}+…‰‚‚€€‚‚€€ãÃÀµ‰‚ÿDon't forget to look at the Terminology of help generation to know the help features available in Windows help and WhizNotes.To get a quick demonstration of Help Gen
O0‚.Leration, see Sample WZN file to demonstrate Help Generation. You must have a Windows Help compiler:To take advantage of WhizNotes help generation you must have the Microsoft help compiler. If you already have a Windows SDK or an equivalent, chances are that you already have the help compiler. See your SDK documentation for more details. If your help compiler filename is different from HC31.EXE then please look at Setting up the Help Compilation environment to see how to setup the environment to invoke the correct help compiler.<ý
Ol…? L€û€‚H€‚€€€€€€ãÃÀµ‰‚ÿIf you do not have the help compiler, you may contact Microsoft Corporation to find out how you may purchase one. Some users reported that Microsoft has put up a help compiler on WINSDK forum on Compuserve (file HCP.ZIP). I tried to contact Microsoft several times to find out whether they have decided to give it for free as a download. No one has replied to me. So it is upto you to get and try the help compiler from their forum. If you try out such a help compiler having a name different from HC31.EXE, you will have to setup your File Manager environment so that WhizNotes can use the compiler. All you have to do is to associate extension HPJ with the compiler's EXE file. For details, please look at Setting up the Help Compilation environment.Ü0‚ƒ‡; D€¹€‚H€‚€€‚‚㵞V‰ã$<牂ÿPrepare your WhizNotes to take advantage of Windows help:If you have inserted Jumps or Refs from one topic to another, WhizNotes converts them to proper Windows Help jumps and references (popups). This is very convenient. For details, see Inserting a jump to another topic. There are many other WhizNotes statements that allow you to format your text for proper viewing under help. For more information, look at the Details of WhizNotes help generation statements.÷¨l…z‹O l€Q€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€ã/®WO‰‚‚€€€€€€‚ÿGenerating Windows Help:To create a Windows help file from your WhizNote window, select menu Tools-Create Help. A dialog box appears that allows you to choose various options for generating a Windows help file. For details, see Help Generation Dialog Box.After you have specified your preferences on the above dialog box, the help compilation is started in a DOS window. When the compilation terminates, your help file would have been created with the same filename as your WhizNote file but with an extension of HLP. WhizNotes gives you an opportunity to test this generated help. You can also test this help at any time by selecting menu Tools-Test Help. You may also directly test the help file by double-clicking on it in the File Manager. Please note that once you have created an HLP file, it is ready to be distributed to your customers and can be used on any PC where Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 is installed. r5ƒ‡ì= H€k€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€‚‚ã/®WO‰‚ÿNote that WhizNotes encodes some information into your help files so that a WhizNotes generated help can be recognized for detecting unlicensed usage of WhizNotes.Tip for advanced users:Normally, all your help text requirements will be met by just using WhizNotes and the help compiler. But in case you want to use a text formatting feature not provided by WhizNotes, you can always edit the intermediate output file (RTF format) produced by WhizNotes by using a WYSIWYG RTF editor like MS Word.

To do that, create a special topic with the name "~StartupHelpMacros" and put your help macros there, each on a separate line. When generating help, WhizNotes will insert these macros in the [CONTENTS] section of the help project (HPJ) file. Of course, you yourself are responsible for dealing with errors given by the help compiler, when you make a mistake in codingÌM !€ 9M these help macros.¢cÌM  ? L€Ç€‚H€‚€€‚€€‚‚ƒ€€‚‚‚ÿExample:Suppose, you want to add a "Close" button to close the help window. Usually such buttons are added by executing the help macro "CreateButton" at the startup. To define it as a startup macro, create a topic named "~StartupHelpMacros" and add the following macro to it:CreateButton(`bt_close', `C&lose', `CloseWindow(`main')')This will make sure that the button is added as soon as the help is started. This way you can use any number of help macros as the startup macros, each on a separate line. Please refer to your Windows SDK help for more information on help macros and their syntax.Ê!€ ڄ M h€•€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€€€€€€€‚ÿTip for advanced users:WhizNotes actually adds a [CONFIG] section at the end of the HPJ file and simply places the text of the topic "~StartupHelpMacros" after that. Hence, if you want to add any more sections to the HPJ file which are not used by WhizNotes then you can place them after the help macros. For example, you can add an [ALIAS] section at the end of the topic "~StartupHelpMacros" as the ALIAS feature is not used by WhizNotes.®d ˆ† J b€É€‚H€‚€€ã폈ɂ‚€€‚ã‰‚ã«´`l‰‚‚ÿOn the other hand, if you want to heavily customize an HPJ file by changing an HPJ section that is also used by WhizNotes, then it is better to use the "customHpjFile option" mentioned in the topic Global attributes to control help generation in general.Also see:Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topicsInserting help macrosd3ڄ ì† 1èÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ¤ì† I‡ Œ Using 'Separator' topics to organize the topic list]7ˆ† I‡ & €n€€€‚ÿUsing 'Separator' topics to organize the topic list!áì† j‰ @ N€Ã€‚H€‚€‚€€€€€€€‚ÿSeparators are special topic names beginning with characters "~~". These dummy topics allow you to divide the list of topics into separate visual sections. This allows for better visual organization of topics in the list. Separators are useful only if you are viewing the list in non-sorted order. In other words, separators act as comments and are ignored for all the important processing, such as when doing help generation, exporting RTF or printing all the topics.n1I‡ ؋ = H€c€‚H€‚‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿTo add a separator to the list, use a topic name that begins with characters "~~". For example, you may use a name like "~~ -------------- List of procedures A" before a set of related topics.Note:Although separator topics are not intended to contain any text, you can still enter text into them. That's why separators are not ignored for all the other operations, such as "Print selected topics" and "Export selected topics to text file". This is for your convenience, so that you can print them selectively or export/import them from text files.(j‰ Œ % €€‚H€‚ÿG؋ GŒ 1ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ¥ÿÿÿÿGŒ Ž A note on this releaseÑ—Œ Ž : B€/€‚H€€‚€‚€ãþ;0щ‚‚‚‚ÿA note on this releaseThis release mainly fixes a Windows 95 related protection-fault in V2.1 which appeared only when performing help generation.

Just select a menu item and press F1 to get the help for it.·Special topics called Separators are available to visually organize your list of topics into sections. For details, see Using 'Separator' topics to organize the topic list..·Now you can open multiple topics at once by selecting them all and pressing the Enter key. Also, the maximum number of open windows has been increased from 25 to 50. The limit is still necessary so that you don't run into the problems of exhausting available memory.×[J

H ^€¯€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€€€‚ÿ·WhizNotes is now able to restore complete desktop for a WhizNote file if you check the "Restore desktop" option on the "desktop options for a WhizNote" dialog. Try this feature. You'll love it.·Menu operations "Save WhizNote as..." and "Close WhizNote" are now also available when working on a topic window. You need not change focus to the WhizNote window to perform them. In addition, "Close WhizNote" is now also available on the toolbar.·Now you can cancel certain long-running operations by pressing the Escape key. Such operations are search/replace, opening multiple topics and importing whole files. You can look at the status bar to recognize such operations which cM

p ®€¹€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€€€€€€€€€‚ÿ·Keyword search has been improved for WhizNotes help. Many new keywords have been added to help you find the desired information quickly.·A new Edit menu item allows you to set or reset "word wrap" attribute for the selected topics.·Now the replace prompt comes up in a position so as not to hide the selected text in the topic window.·Message box has been improved to present the scroll bar only if needed.·It was found that certain foreign characters did not display properly in the topic names on the list of topics and also on the dialogs. The font has been changed from System to Arial to solve this problem. However, the topic window titles still have this problem as they use the System font.!Ý2€

@ N€C€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚€ €ƒãQ”Ö‰‚ÿ·Now the generated INC file contains numbers in decimal instead of hexadecimal so that programs in many other programming languages can use it. Moreover, a new utility Convinc.exe is available with the registered version that allows you to convert the #define statements in the WhizNotes generated INC file to any other language by supplying a template. Just invoke convinc.exe under DOS without parameters and it will show you the syntax to use it.·Some new information can be found in Basics of Help generation and related topics.½ø…

T v€{€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒãIt×G‰‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€€€€€‚ÿ·Statements for inserting bitmaps into your help files have been simplified as described in How to insert bitmaps into your help files. For your convenience, the old format statements will still work so that you do not have to change your earlier coded bitmap statements.·Don't forget to look at the sample WZN file that demonstrates help generation. It has many more new examples.·By now you must have seen how useful the HelpTopic statements are for advanced help generation. You might have wished for a way to find out the topics for which you have not yet defined the HelpTopic statements. A menu item on the Tools menu has been added just for this purpose. Please try it out.‘1Yˆ

` Ž€c€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€ã‰‚€ €ƒã¬ò\‰‚€ €ƒ€€€€€
€‚ÿ·To give you more control on the Context Numbers generated by WhizNotes a new help attribute ContextNumber has been added. For details, see Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topics.·You can find some new tips in Tips for the Power User.·There have been some changes in the Context String generation logic. Now the non-ascii (foreign) characters in the topic names are converted to underscores when generating context strings. Such characters are also not allowed in a context string that you specify. A WhizNotes context string should be upto 255 chars long and should only contain 'ascii' alpha-numeric chars or '_' char. WhizNotes forces this rule to avoid invalid identifiers in the C header file so as not to choke the C compiler. This might change a few calls in the programs for non-English users who are invoking help by specifying earlier generated context strings in their programs. The incovenience to these users is regretted. But then, this change is for better and is going to avoid a number of problems for you in future.j‹

2 2€Õ€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒã‰‚ÿ·Now if you specify VisibleJumpText in a HelpTopic, it is used as an alias for topic name in the text of all the generated help: in topic titles, in jumps and references, and in the topic name keyword. This gives you an indirect way to organize your topic list in hierarchial levels. For details, see Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topics.< À

N j€€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚€ €ƒ€€€
€‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·Earlier Setup program did not work correctly if the working directory was not same as its program directory. This has been fixed.·The date inserted by Edit-Insert date... operations did not work properly after a certain time of the day (it was erroneously using GM time conversion). This has been fixed. It is interesting that only one user caught and reported this problem.·Sometimes a "General protection fault" or "Virtual function called" error occurred when copying topics from one WhizNote to another by dragging and then renaming them. This has been fixed.ЈäÁ

H ^€€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€€€‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·For large WhizNote files, sometimes when opening the WhizNote file, the program used to go into a loop and cause a "General protection fault". This was found to be a problem in .DSK files and has been fixed. It is suggested that you delete all your .DSK files. They will automatically be created again.·Search did not work properly for a WhizNote for which the option to customize topic-sizes had been selected. This has been fixed.·Version 2.0 did not perform "import topics" operation properly if the text file contained empty topics, that is, topics having no text after the line containing the topic name. This has been fixed.Í“yÄ

: B€'€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·For non-English version of Windows, some users reported strange problems where certain non-ascii characters caused problems in HelpTopic statements where the help generation reported errors like "Topic not found". This problem has been fixed. The problem was actually related to loss of information on upper-case-conversion in these languages.·The "Contents" in generated help always listed the topics in the sorted sequence even if the list of topics was unsorted and custom-sequenced. The same problem existed for the topics listed in the INC file. This has been fixed so that now the topics are listed in the same order as the list of topics.×IÇ

< F€¯€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚€ €ƒ‚ÿ·The "Save as..." operation from a word-wrapped text file window used to break paragraphs into lines. This has been fixed.·When the maximum size limit for a topic was reached, the saved text used to be truncated for that topic. This has been fixed.·In help generation, during INC file generation, the context numbers generated by WhizNotes skip one number near the beginning of the range. This does not cause any problem either for help generation or for providing context sensitive help. This trivial skip was deliberately not corrected so as to generate exactly same default context Ids as V2.0. Needless to say, just for compatibility reasons, this will remain as it is for all the future versions of WhizNotes.*Ê

Also, if you have used WhizNotes earlier, please don't forget to look at the new features mentioned in Improvements since version 2.0.Try desktop options for a WhizNote:If you haven't tried it yet, please look at the dialog that comes up when you select menu "Options-Desktop options for this WhizNote...". There are 3 choices for opening the topics. If you like to work with the topics always opening at the last cursor position and size then the second option "Open topics at their last customized position" is best for you. You should also check the "Restore desktop" option.<ßq É ] ˆ€¿€‚H€‚€€‚‚ã^q¥€‰‚‚€€‚‚€€€€€€€€ã¼¥!l‰‚ÿUse File Manager to open WZN files:For details, see Opening from File Manager.Use Windows Recorder:For easier entering of WhizNotes formatting statements like [~bold], [~italic], etc you should use Windows accessory Recorder. A special file Whiznote.rec is provided that allows you to simply select text and press a key combination for enclosing the selected text in a [~..] statement. For details, see How to create recorder macros for help statements.N  ; D€'€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿDrop files from the File Manager onto a WhizNote window:You can insert a copy of external text files as topics by either selecting menu Tools-Import whole files or by dragging them from the File Manager and dropping them onto a WhizNote window. You can print a set of files this way using the nice printing features of WhizNotes. Before printing, you can rename the copied topics to assign them more meaningful names. If the files you are printing are program files, it is better to select a fixed font before printing.¸É 4A Y €€q€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿUse keyboard accelerators for convenience:Many menu items have keyboard accelerators or short-cuts associated with them. You should use them to your advantage by memorizing the accelerators for the most often used functions.For example, for adding a topic, simply press INSERT key. For deleting a topic, press DELETE key.DOS text files:For viewing DOS text files containing specia 4A è l graphic characters, use the Terminal font. Also, to convert word-wrapped text to DOS line-based text file, use the special export feature to word-break at a specified column. This is very useful to prepare a file like README.TXT that is usually viewed by a Type command at the DOS prompt.7ö kC A P€í€‚H€‚€€‚‚ãt‰‰‰€€€€‚ÿUse "Window" menu to organize your desktop:The Multiple Document Interface features available in Window menu are indeed very convenient. You should try them and use them whenever possible. For example, when you are dragging a topic from a WhizNote onto a topic window, you should minimize the unneeded windows and then tile the ones that you want to work with. This makes it more convenient to perform a drag and drop. You may also use Window menu to quickly locate an open topic window. ·4A ‰G g œ€o€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€‚‚€€€€€€€€€€€€€€‚ÿUse word wrapping:You should use word wrapping for any document that you want to later edit with a word processor. This will preserve your paragraphs. You should also use word wrapping if you are creating a document to be converted to a Windows help file. There is a tricky point related to word wrapping: if you paste non-word-wrapped text from clipboard then you must remove the ending new line characters on consecutive lines in a paragraph, for word wrapping to be effective. To do this, make your editor window as large as possible. Then on each line press End to jump to the end of line and press Delete till the next line joins the end of current line. The new line (carriage return) is only necessary at the end of the paragraph. To force a new line press Enter at the end of a paragraph. To avoid this tedious procedure, it is better to import such a text from a file using the special word-wrap feature of import.5ökC ¾H ?

Creating Windows help:Now if you have the Microsoft Help Compiler, try to create help from the Tools menu. Just enter a title for your help when asked, and press OK. The help compilation should go through successfully unless WhizNotes is unable to locate your help compiler. Look at the generated help. You will see that the earlier inserted jump statement gets converted to Windows hypertext jump. If you are interested in help generation, don't forget to see Sample WZN file to demonstrate Help Generation to get a quick demonstration.

OjÌ .Î 1Á§‚è².Î vÎ ¢ Terminology of help generationH"ßÍ vÎ & €D€€€‚ÿTerminology of help generation*ì.Î ¬ > J€Ù€‚H€‚€‚€‚‚€€‚‚ã܆›š‰‚ÿHere is a list of terms to help you better understand the help generation features of WhizNotes:Jump:In Windows help, you can see some underlined phrases that allow you to go to a different topic window by clicking on them. These are called hypertext Jumps. For example, here is a jump: Window menu. WhizNotes allows yvÎ ¬ ßÍ ou to insert jump statements by dragging topic names on top of the open topic windows. You can even test the link by double-clicking on such a jump statement.v+vÎ " K d€W€‚H€‚€€‚‚â܆›š‰‚‚€€‚‚€€€€‚ÿPopup or a reference:These are similar to jumps but are underlined with dashes. For example, here is a reference: Window menu. When you click on a reference, the indicated topic is opened as a popup window. This is suitable for small topics or definitions. In WhizNotes, the references are inserted similar to the Jump statements and the double-clicking also works like a Jump so that you can test the link.Contents:In Windows help, at any time, you can press on a button Contents and a table of contents appears. WhizNotes generates such a Contents topic for you by default where it includes all the topics from your topic list. This is often not desirable and you should make your own topic with the name "Contents" where you can include only the top level topics with proper formatting for better readability. WhizNotes will use your topic "Contents" if it is present. Foreign users may want to designate a different topic for Contents. This can be done by using advanced options called GlobalHelpOptions (Described in registered version help). e¬  ; D€Ë€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€ã‰‚ÿKeywords:When using Windows help, you can use a keyword search facility where a dialog box appears showing you a list of phrases or words. On selecting a particular word, you are shown a list of topics related to that word. Such words or phrases are called Keywords. By default, WhizNotes assigns one keyword to each topic which is same as the topic name. If you don't want that, you can use help attribute definitions to avoid that. In addition, by using the help attributes, you can define more keywords for a particular topic. For details, see Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topics.!È" ã Y €€‘€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€€€€€€€€€€€ã ñ‰‚ÿBrowsing sequences:Look at the top of this help window. You will see push buttons >> and << that guide you through a series of related topics. These are called Browse buttons and the groups or series of topics are called Browse groups or Browse sequences. WhizNotes allows you to define Browse sequences by simply defining a list of topics in special topics which define help attributes. For details, see Browsing sequences of topics.°Â ä Q p€a€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€‚‚€€‚‚€€ãq¨d‰€€‚ÿHelp Macros:This is a very powerful feature of Windows help. Macros allow you to customize the Windows help to include more buttons or features. WhizNotes allows you to define macros for topics as well as embedded macros in the text of topics. For details, search help for keyword Help Macro. Conditional help generation:This is a very powerful feature of WhizNotes that allows you to select topics and topic text for generating a different version of the help from the same WhizNote file. Please do not confuse it with Buildtags provided with the help compiler. WhizNotes' Conditional help generation is more powerful and more convenient to use than the Buildtags. ¾pã ¢ N j€á€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€ã$<牂‚€€‚‚ã ` ‰‚‚‚‚ÿWhizNotes statements:These are statements like [~bold...], [~startlist] etc. which allow you to enhance the appearance of your help text. For details, please look at Details of WhizNotes help generation statements. .Context string:Windows help internally uses special identifiers for the help topics. Such identifiers are called Context strings.Kä í 1·ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ³í 1 ω Help Generation Dialog BoxD¢ 1 & €<€€€‚ÿHelp Generation Dialog BoxLí ‰A H ^€ €‚H€‚€‚€€€‚‚€€‚‚‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿThis dialog box appears when you select menu Tools-Create Help... to generate Windows hypertext help from a WhizNote file.

WARNING: However, the copyright symbol might not appear properly in the generated help's about box (check and see. Does it appear as a 'registered' symbol?). To fix that you'll have to exit Windows 3.1 and run its setup to install multilingual font instead of regular OEM font. If you don't want to do that, you are better off using '(C)' instead of the copyright symbol.ᩉA tE 8 >€S€‚H€‚€€‚‚‚‚€€‚‚ÿType of font:Microsoft documentation recommends that you should use "MS Sans Serif" size 10 font for help documentation. If you specify "recommended font" then this is the font that will be selected by WhizNotes. If you want another font, select the "Same as Whiznote" option. In this case, the font will be same as the font for WhizNote: one that you specified in the "Desktop options" for the WhizNote.Options:—Y“C H > J€³€ȂH€€‚‚‚‚€€‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿCompress Help file:If you check this box, you can generate a compressed Help file that requires less space but needs more time for creation. It is best to use this option when you are finally generating a help file to be distributed to your customers. Note that WhizNotes encodes some information into your help files so that a WhizNotes generated help can be recognized for detecting unlicensed usage of WhizNotes.Optimize for CD ROM:With this option, the help file is optimized so that it is read more efficiently from a CD ROM.

For your information, the files with following extensions are generated by WhizNotes. All these files have the same name as your WhizNote file, but have different extensions:µ I 0L ` Ž€k€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€ƒ‚€ €ƒ€€ƒ‚ÿ·HPJHelp Project File·BATBatch file to run compilation·RTFRich Text Format (RTF) representation of your WhizNote·HPOOutput file for the help compilation)K YL % €€‚H€‚ÿ „J0L ÝN : B€•€ȂH€€‚‚‚‚€€€€‚ÿJust create RTF files...:This is very useful if you are experimenting with implementing your own RTF macros, or you want to enhance WhizNotes generated help by using an RTF editor like MS Word. If you choose this option then WhizNotes just generates all the above files needed to run the help compiler, but actually stops just before running the compiler. At this point, you can make whatever changes you want to the RTF and HPJ files generated by WhizNotes. Then you can uncheck this option and check the next one that allows to run the help compiler on the changed files. ·YL ï€ O l€o€ȂH€‚€€‚‚€€€€€€€€€€‚‚ÿJust run the help compiler:After making your custom changes to RTF or HPJ files as mentioned above, for invoking the help compiler, you need not go to DOS to run the BAT file prepared by WhizNotes. YoÝN ï€ ¢ u can just check this option and WhizNotes will only run the help compiler without disturbing the changed RTF or HPJ file. Earlier version of WhizNotes required you to go to DOS to perform this kind of custom generation.ò©ÝN ᄠI `€S€ȂH€‚‚€€‚‚â ` ‰€€â ` ‰€€‚ÿOf course, if you were to uncheck this option later, remember that next help generation will regenerate the RTF and other files and will overwrite your changes.Generate C Header file:This option is for the programmers who want to integrate calls to the help topics in their program. A C language header file is generated that contains the #defines for the Context strings used by WhizNotes. For details on how to use this information for integration, please look into your Help compiler documentation or into the online help for Windows SDK. WhizNotes generates a file with extension INC which you can include in your programs. To invoke a particular help topic you need to call the function WinHelp() with HELP_CONTEXT parameter, giving a Context string from the INC file. For your convenience, the INC file contains the topic names in the form of comments. Also, at the top of INC file, you will find some useful tips.’Lï€ s‡ F Z€™€ȂH€‚â ` ‰â ` ‰ã¬ò\‰â ` ‰ã‰‚ÿA note for the programmers who found it difficult to use Context strings generated by the earlier version of WhizNotes: You will find that now WhizNotes generates more meaningful Context strings derived from the topic names, instead of number based ids. These are less likely to change with your evolving help project. Also, you can override them if you don't like the default ones. See Tips for the Power User for some tips on usage of Context strings. Also see Keywords, macros, and other characteristics of topics for information on overriding context string for a topic.4ðᄠ§‰ D V€á€ȂH€‚€€€€‚‚€€‚‚ãq¨d‰‚ÿIf you are using a language other than C or C++, the generated INC file may not be useful to you. In such a case, you can use Convinc.exe utility (only available with the registered version) to convert the constant definitions to another language. Just invoke Convinc.exe under DOS without any parameters and it will show you the syntax to use it. Selectively generate by using tags:This needs a fairly advanced discussion.

The file name is HC31.EXE. Try finding it using the File Manager. Some users reported that Microsoft has put up a help compiler on WINSDK forum on Compuserve (file HCP.ZIP). I tried to contact Microsoft several times to find out whether they have decided to give it for free as a download. No one has replied to me. So it is upto you to get and try the help compiler from their forum. If you try out such a help compiler having a name different from HC31.EXE then you will have to setup your File Manager environment so that WhizNotes can use the compiler. All you have to do is to associate extension HPJ with the compiler's EXE file. For details, please look at Setting up the Help Compilation environment.(ø

You will see that on each press, it guides you through a series of related topics and when you reach the end of the group, the button is disabled. You can no longer proceed in the forward direction, you have to press the button << to move back through the topics. Of course, as a help author, it is I who decided what topics are related to each other and then placed them in separate groups in a sequence. How did I do that? I used WhizNotes' ListBrowseGroup statements to specify these groups.‡F̏

A P€€‚H€‚€€€€‚‚€€‚‚ƒ‚ƒ‚‚ÿWhizNotes makes it very simple to assign browse groups. All you have to do is to make a special topic named ~HelpAttributes and define the browse groups using the statement syntax given below. If one topic is not enough, you can define more of these topics, provided their names begin with the characters ~HelpAttributes.Syntax for defining browse groups in WhizNotes:ListBrowseGroup { "topic-name1", "topic-name2", ...}You can define as many browse groups as you want; but remember, that in Windows help, a topic can not be present in more than one browse groups.LÔÂ

One smart user wanted to give topic names like "l_0.Who.There", "l_0.Who.Here" to simulate hierarchial levels between topics.

The value should be upto 255 chars long and should only contain 'ascii' alpha-numeric chars or '_' char. WhizNotes forces this rule to avoid invalid identifiers in the C header file so as not to choke the C compiler.)• 4& €€ȂH€‚ÿW& ‹1 2€L€PÈ:‚H€ €ƒ€€‚ÿ·ContextNumber (advanced usage)Äv4[AN j€í€ȂH€‚€€€€‚‚€€â ` ‰€€€€‚ÿIf you choose to generate a C header file when creating help, you must have noticed that WhizNotes assigns a number to each topic in the INC file. This is called a Context Number. Context numbers are not usually used directly by your program. For instance, when you are invoking a help‹[AÕÇ
topic from your program, you should provide a Context string in your call to the WinHelp function. This is a good programming pratice so that if you add or delete topics from your help, you only need to recompile your program to work with the new help file. You won't have to change each and every WinHelp call in the program.Ÿx‹úA' €ð€ȂH€‚‚ÿBut, let me show you two conditions where you'd like to have more control on the context numbers assigned to topics:®d[A¨FJ b€É€P‘€:‚H€ƒ€€€€‚ƒ€€€€€€‚ÿ1.You are providing context sensitive F1 help for your menu items and are calculating the context numbers based on the menu-id. In such a case, you should pre-calculate the context number required for each menu's help topic and must assign it by a HelpTopic statement as described above. 2.Suppose you add new topics to a help file that you have distributed as online help for your program. Your program uses WinHelp calls to invoke some help topics. But now, you only want to distribute the new help file to the user. The new topics that you have added are not directly invoked by the program. If you are not careful, the context numbers assigned to earlier topics will change and your old program's executable will not be able to invoke the correct help topics. To avoid such problems, you must always generate help from your WhizNote by keeping the list of topics in the custom-sequenced order (not sorted order). In such a case, if you take care to add the new topics at the end of the list, your earlier calls will not be affected and the old program's executable will still work with the new help file.¿ŠúAgG5 8€€‘€‚H€‚€€€€‚ÿAnother solution is to force the ContextNumber for the program-invoked topics by using the HelpTopic statement as described above.ࢨFGH> J€E€‚H€‚€€‚‚€€‚‚ãø¨Ó£‰‚‚ÿFor actual examples of some of these attributes, please take a look at the sample WZN file provided with WhizNotes.Also see:A note on quoted valuesT#gG›H1 |Š

However, if you try to code RTF in a topic text then there is no way for WhizNotes to know whether you really intend it to be interpretd as RTF or not. Consequently, it processes it as a literal text. You can insert direct RTF code in your text using the statement [~RTF...]. In this case WhizNotes will not touch the enclosed text and will write it verbatim to the RTF file.ø»èHOM= H€w€‚H€‚€€€€‚‚€€‚‚‚ÿBut, there is an even more powerful feature. You can define your own statements in a special topic with name: ~RtfMacros.

WhizNotes inherits its message processing loop from some Borland libraries and the message loop tries to take advantage of the idle time when no other application is really using the CPU. What you see on performance monitors is the CPU usage due to this method of processing messages. Believe me, it does not affect any other "running" application at all, at least on Windows 3.1.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
