I'm using RH for HTML Help X4.1. I'm creating graphis using
Visio 2000, version 5.1.26. I save the visio graphics as a .gif and
import them into my help topics. On Visio, they look fine, but when
I import them, RH enlarges the frame that contains them so that
there is a large top margin, putting lots of space between the top
of the graphic proper and the top of the RH frame. This puts a lot
of space between the bottom of the topic text and the top of the
graphic. All of the sizing margins are set to 0, and if I drag the
top of the frame down closer to the graphic, it distorts the image.
How can I get rid of that large top margin so the graphic can be
snug up against the bottom of the topic text? I've created hundreds
of graphics using Visio for WinHelp, and I've never had this
problem. Don't know if the problem is with Visio or with RH HTML.
I regularly accomplish this by setting a negative bottom
margin. But you can't do it using the spin box controls provided.
You will have to manually type the value. Try perhaps -5. Then
click OK out of the dialogs and see how the image looks. Repeat as
necessary until you find your magic number.
