Viewing Clips
->
  
You can convert the contents of a Web site to a Clip, update it periodically using HandStory Converter, and view it on the road using HandStory Browser. You can download Clips from the HandStory Clip Service web site, or you can create your own custom Clips from virtually any Web site.
Downloading a Script Clip
HandStory supports four types of Clips: Direct Clip, Custom Direct Clip, Script Clip, and Login Script Clip. Let's look at how to download a Script Clip from the HandStory Clip service site:
1. Right-click the HandStory icon ( ) on the system tray of your Windows PC, point to HandStory Clip Page , and then click the URL of the HandStory Clip service.
2. Select a Script Clip and click .
 
 
After Internet Explorer finishes downloading the Clip, the Script Clip Settings window will open automatically. 
Updating the Clip
Now we'll configure a few settings for the Clip we just downloaded and then update it for the first time. Updating the Clip will download the content from the source Web site and convert it for viewing on the handheld device.
1. In the  Script Clip Settings  window, specify the mobile device user and the folder where the Clip will be saved.
2. (optional) Select the following options:
 
o Hi-Res : Select this if your handheld device has a high-resolution screen. o Images : Select the number of colors for images in the Clip. Choose a lower number if you want to save memory space. To prevent downloading images, choose "Do Not Convert Images". o To Card : Select this to save the Clip on a memory card rather than built-in memory. o Fast Clip : If you select this, the Clip content will be downloaded in pre-converted form from the HandStory Clip Server, rather than from the source Web site, whenever you update the Clip. This results in faster updating, but you may not always obtain the most up-to-date version of the Clip content. 3. Click OK . The Clip's name and details should now be visible on the list of Clips in the HandStory Converter - Manage Clips window.
4. To update the Clip, select it in the Clip list and click Update .
 Note: If the Clip you downloaded is a Login Script Clip, HandStory Converter will prompt you to enter your user ID and password for the source Web site.
 When HandStory Converter finishes updating the Clip, synchronize your handheld device to download the Clip to it.
In the future, you can quickly update a single Clip or all your Clips at once by right-clicking the HandStory tray icon ( ), pointing to Update Clips , and then clicking the name of the Clip you want to update or Update All Clips .
Setting an update schedule
 
By default, new Clips are set for manual updating, meaning you have to manually initiate the update process every time you want to update the Clip. If you want, you can set a Clip to be updated automatically according to a schedule.
1. Right-click the HandStory tray icon ( ) and click Manage Clips . The HandStory Converter - Manage Clips window will appear.
2. Double-click the Clip you downloaded before and then click Update Settings .
3. Select one of the following:
o Manually : The Clip will not be automatically updated. o Every week : The Clip will be automatically updated on the selected day(s) at the selected hour. o Every month : The Clip will be automatically updated once a month on the selected date at the selected hour.
4. Click OK .
