AmigaGuide/Multiview questions

Subject: AmigaGuide/Multiview questions
by Raziel on 2019/5/18 15:27:57

So, i'm trying to pretty up my AmigaGuide and am stuck when it comes to place some options inside the Guide.

First a general question:
Is it possible to display pictures beside the text (without opening an extra window), e.g. a logo on top of the text (maybe even user placable)?

All of those options are taken out of the AutoDoc amigaguide_dtc.doc

1)
@{<label> <command>}
Indicate a textual link point. Can be anywhere in a line.
Starting with 3.0, AmigaGuide can can link to graphics,
sounds, animations and other DataTypes.

I tried something simple
@{"Text" "AppDir:Multiviewer text"}
with "text" being a file in the same directory as the Guide.
Then i tried it without the AppDir part, as the description indicates that a destination file is going to be handled by datatypes, but still nothing.

What am i doing wrong?

2)
@{AMIGAGUIDE}
Displays the word AmigaGuide in bold followed by the ® symbol.
New for V40.

I have yet to find the exact place where it displays that.
I placed it inside the main node but it never comes up.

3)
The whole PEN options and Background/Foreground.
They don't seem to do anything, or maybe i haven't understand the format of those options.

What would be the exact format to e.g. use @{BPEN}?

4) @HEIGHT <chars>
How high, in characters, the largest document is.
and
@WIDTH <chars>
How wide, in characters, the largest document is.

What is meant here?
How big the font used is or how many characters are there in the doc?
Why would that be important, given we have word wrapping available?

Thank you
