Version 1.3 – Release date: May 23, 2005

  • Internal HND format has been fine-tuned to provide better speed and size. Gain is proportional to project complexity but for reference: For a simple help file such as the one from HelpNDoc, the loading time is divided by 2 and the file size is only 70% of the original; For a bigger file, the loading is 30 times faster for a size of 64% of the original.
  • Search and replace algorithm have been optimized. Speed is 6 times faster for a small size project and increases with project size.
  • Possibility to change font and character set of the table of content in CHM files
  • Detailed hint for each node: indicates the URL of the node in the CHM file, context number and the topic ID if required
  • When a HND file was opened via the explorer, its name was converted to upper case
