TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
"WinHelp" in the subject line refers to the Windows 3.x online help engine,
WINHELP.EXE. The peculiar behavior is as follows: Instead of the buttons on
the button bar being a fixed width, and lining up next to each other, they
become horizontally expandable and stack up VERTICALLY. It looks rather odd,
but I'd really, REALLY like to be able to make it happen on demand. The
reason: everything we've heard from internal testers suggest the standard
button bar is almost invisible to users.
If you have also experienced this and/or know how to make it happen, I'd
like to hear from you. I'm receiving techwr-l via mail in digest format, so
replies via E-mail are much preferred.
