Frequently asked question
Are there any tutorials for main features?
I don’t understand the way WebSiteWord saves pages.
All hypertext pages are saved in a whole “AEH” file. With “File >Save all” or with the toolbar button, you save all hypertext pages with a single click.
What should I do to save a single page?
You can use "File >Save as...", or "File >Export pages". In this way you can obtain single Rtf or Html pages.
What should I do if I want many Html pages, or I want to see a preview?
Use the "Publish" menu. You can also publish directly with FTP.
The templates seem in Italian! Where could I get English ones?
The templates are not in Italian. It is a dummy latin-like language that has no meaning. The text is there just to fit the page. You can replace it with anything you want.
How can I delete a table?
There are many ways. For example put the cursor on a cell, press the right mouse button, then choose "Select table", then press DEL.
I can't delete some objects with DEL.
Use DEL twice.
The XYZ window shows too little for me!
Please resize the window. WebSiteWord stores and remembers window settings.
What can I do with an "AEH"? Can I see it only with WebSiteWord?
You can see an "AEH" with different VisualVision products
and with iPerReader (works on same principle of Acrobat Reader; you need to upgrade to iPer Hyper Publish
in order to have it: it will be automatically included by the CD Wizard). An AEH file contains a whole hypertext, so your work becomes easy to share. With the "Publish" menu you can convert into Html or Rtf files anytime you want.
Where can I find information about pages contained in an hypertext? How can I manage pages?
Creation: "Insert >New page", "Insert >Link".
Deletions, management: "Hypertext >Images /files /link archive and erase".
Access: "Hypertext >Go to page", the bottom center page number box, right mouse button on this box.
How can I see the hypertext on a browser?
Use "Publish >Browser preview"
I want to call “index.htm” the home page.
Use “Hypertext >Present hypertext properties”, tab “Page settings, background”.
I want to supply the Html file name for a page.
Use “Format >Page properties”, and the center left gray box. For the home page, use “Hypertext >Present hypertext properties”, tab “Page settings, background”.
I'm writing a manual for an application and I need to repeat many times the application logo and the application name. Is there a quick way?
Create a new page, insert the name and the logo of the application.
Then you can use "Edit >Paste page from..." to insert the logo anywhere you want.
I can't use tabs!
You can use the "reduce indent" and "increase indent" buttons.
The copy and paste sometimes discard the text format.
This can happen for short text, as WebSiteWord tries to use intelligent behavior when you cut & paste. Sometimes the behavior is not exactly as you can expect.
When I'm editing a *.aeh file, how can I delete a page (in my case page 0 as it is empty)?
Page 0 can't be deleted. For other pages, use "Hypertext >Images /files /link archive and erase". You can also cut & paste another page to fill the page 0.
If I move to “read only” (Edit/Preview button), it seems the slides don’t work
You have to use “Hypertext >reload page” to start the sequence. To obtain this at load time, configure the hypertext “Read only” with “Hypertext >Options”.
I don't understand how to insert a link.
Select a text block, then press the button with a page and a chain. In the window that comes up, you can link to an existing page in the hypertext, or to a newer one - more options are also available.
If for example you choose "new page", then press OK, WebSiteWord will create the new page for you, and will show the page in the editor. If you link to an existing page, you can choose it from an active preview - active means that you can navigate through it like in a browser. When you press OK, the link is made, and WebSiteWord shows the destination page in the editor. See also the tutorial
How can I link an external Html page, for example an Html page that already exists on my Web site?
Select a block, chain button, choose the 3rd tab, "Internet", click the “Add” button and write in the left box the address (for example "http://mysite.com/ mypage.htm"), then press "OK".
How can I copy a page within another in same hypertext (with Html I can do it with "save as", then "open". Is there another way in WebSiteWord)?
"Insert >New page", then "New page by copying existing one"; or "New page by copying from another hypertext", ...
You can also use "Edit >Paste page from...".
Can I insert in different pages a text and/or images group identical for each page, like a "C" include"?
Create a new page and write down text and images.
Then, for each page that will contain the text, use "Insert >Html >Within text", then the button "insert page in text". After that a window will show; you can then select the page to insert.
Note that this isn't visual, and works for Html publishing only. For a visual system, see another FAQ in this page.
I can't do some things like in Front Page.
WebSiteWord isn't Front Page, WebSiteWord is an hypertextual editor, with its own philosophy (at present, a unique one).
How can I make floating windows?
I see the "paste from clipboard" can perform the automatic conversion of a WMF in a GIF / JPG with a lower byte size.
As I already inserted WMF images, can I convert them in GIF in some way or I must reinsert them?
Unfortunately, you must reinsert.
In a hypertext with lots of gifs, it seems as though there are problems with previews.
Use “Tools >Program options” to increase the image cache settings.
I am having trouble inserting image with transparent background. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.
It should work for the large majority of GIF image. However, not all images are adapt to be automatically converted using the included transparent-color processor, so you may have to proceed manually with paint programs such Paint Shop PRO
or Corel Photo Paint.
I can’t “minimize” the application.
Select “Tools >Program options” then “Reset dialogs settings”, then exit from the application and restart it.
Can I manage ASP pages with WebSiteWord?
Certainly. You can use “Insert >Html >Within text” to insert ASP code. You can also take advantage of third part custom libraries, if you move to iPer Hyper Publish PRO
. As WSW uses “.htm” or ”.html” as file extension, you may have to ask your server administrator to enable these extensions also for ASP pages (usually ASP pages are named “.asp”, but it is easy to override this setting).
Do you have a Mac edition?
I have an icon for email - I've checked the tutorial and can't find out how to make this work!
Very simple: select the image, right mouse button on it, "define link", 3rd tab, "+ Add" button, then enter mailto:email@example.com
I can't insert animated GIFs with "Insert >Animation"!
Please use "Insert >Image".
The program says “Access Violation XXXX”, then hangs...
You have too much applications opened (”too much” can mean just 4-5 in Win98...!). Please close some application, and/or restart your computer.
