General Properties (NetHelp Classic Only)
folder includes sections that allow you to define the background of the NetHelp window.
Body background color

and topic panes, that can be colored by the Body background color.

color. The margin of the topic pane is the sum of the Border margin and the Topic margin.
Toolbars Properties (NetHelp Classic Only)
folder includes sections that allow you to configure and customize the toolbars, define button groups in
them, assign buttons to toolbars and button groups, add new custom commands, and set button group properties.
Please note: every button must belong to a Group.
— Click this button to add a button group, or a list of buttons that will appear together, under the selected
toolbar. There may be multiple buttons or only one button in a button group. A group can also be empty, but this would
be done on rare occasions to define a separator preceding the first group in the toolbar. If there are no groups and you
want to add a button, create a group by clicking this button and then you can add a button.
— Click this button to remove the selected button group.
— Click these buttons to move a button group up or down in the list of button groups under the toolbar, or use
these buttons to move a button up or down in the list of buttons under the group. Note that you can also use the drag-and-
drop method to move button groups within or between toolbars or to move buttons within or between button groups.
Add Custom Button
— Click this button to add a new button to the button list.
Remove Custom Button
— Click this button to remove a button from the button list.
Use the < and > buttons to move a button to the selected group or remove a button from the selected group and place it
back in the button list. Note that you can also use the drag-and-drop method to move a button to and from the button list.
— Aligns the button group to the
of the toolbar where it is located.
— Separates button groups on the selected toolbar. In most cases, use non-breaking spaces; for example,
shows a three-space separator. However, you can use any other string as a separator. The string
will be shown on the toolbar between button groups. If the group alignment is set to
, the separator will
appear to the right of the group. If group alignment is set to
, the separator will appear to the left of the group.
— Indicates if the buttons in the group have a border.
Main Toolbar, Left Toolbar, and Topic Toolbar Options
folders allow you to modify the layout and background of each
toolbar in your NetHelp target. The controls and their properties for these three folders are identical.
