Support for Virtual Volumes Added to Cross-Platform Help System for

LOS ANGELES, California (March 22, 2005) – Electric Butterfly announces the
immediate availability of UniHelp 1.7, the award-winning help system for

Apple Help Viewer, Microsoft HTML Help, WinHelp…. Why waste precious
development time designing and compiling a different Help system for each
platform when you can easily use UniHelp for all of them? Just drag the
UniHelp components folder into your REALbasic project, add a few lines of

What’s New in UniHelp 1.7:

— UniHelp now supports Virtual Volumes! Place all of your help pages and
related subdirectories and help graphics inside a single REALbasic Virtual
Volume file. UniHelp 1.7 displays your help pages and Table of Contents as
usual, using the Virtual Volume format like a database. Distributing your
help in a single file, cross-platform Virtual Volume enables your
application to be more portable! Please note: this new feature is optional,
using a standard help folder is also still supported.

— Improved help navigation! By popular demand, the currently displayed
help page is always highlighted in the Table of Contents, even if the page
request did not originate from a Table of Contents selection. Perform a
search, utilize context-sensitive help, click the Back/Next arrow buttons,
or click on an HTML hyperlink to jump to a new help page and its location in
the Table of Contents will be automatically highlighted, showing you exactly
where you are in the help system at all times.

— New Virtual Volume boolean parameter added to the RunUniHelp method,
notifying UniHelp whether your help pages are located in a Virtual Volume
(True) or a standard folder (False).

— UniHelp’s parsing of Relative Path HTML hyperlinks is now faster and more
