Improved “expand behaviour” of Table of Contents

August 26th, 2014

Two small optimizations to the live manuals today:

  • When you select a topic in the Table of Contents, it is always automatically “expanded” to show its’ subtopics.
  • The clickable (tappable) area of the expand/collapse icons (chevrons) is now slightly larger, making them easier to touch on mobile touch screen devices.

Thanks to Mark from Pyware, for suggestion this tweak!


New: Hide and Show the Table of Contents in live manuals

July 3rd, 2014

toc-hide-button-smallA cool improvement to the live manuals, suggested by one of our users (thanks, David!): the ability to temporarily hide and show the Table of Contents.
After hiding the Table of Contents, the actual topic contents takes up the full width the manual website, super handy on smaller screens.

To hide the Table of Contents, click the arrow button to the right of the ToC panel:
toc-open

To make the Table of Contents appear again, click the arrow button that’s hovering on the left:
toc-close


Improved top bar and ToC on mobile devices

June 3rd, 2014

Today we’ve implemented several improvements to the look and feel of your online manuals when viewed on small screen mobile devices.

  • The Table of Contents that appears after clicking the button in the top bar now also supports the expanding and collapsing of topics, just like the normal ToC that appears in the sidebar on larger screens.
  • The layout of the top bar has been improved (the navigation bar that contains the company logo and name, manual name, language selector, search bar and ToC button).
