Prevent inline styles when importing from FrameMaker

Jul 11, 2012 8:57 AM

Tags: #css #framemaker #framemaker_10 #importing #inline_styles

I'm using Adobe Technical Communication Suite 3.5 (FrameMaker 10, RoboHelp 9).

 

I'm importing FrameMaker books into RoboHelp HTML (via File > New > Project > Import). Unfortunately, the tables in the book end up as HTML tables that use a lot of inline styles (style attributes on individual elements), which I'm finding difficult to override with CSS.

 

Is it possible to import FrameMaker books so that inline styles are never used?

    Have you mapped your FM table style to a style in RH (a css style)?

    As Matt says, what are your Conversion Settings like?

    OK, so we're on the right track...

     

    Try setting your Customize Cell Borders and Shading back to From Table

    Select your entire table in FM, Choose Table > Format > Custom Cell Borders and Shading (or Fill...)

     

    Make sure the checkboxes are all selected, and that any choices for From Table are selected, then hit Apply

     

    Then update your RH project

    Try giving Adobe Support a call - they might have some suggestions. I've never really looked at how my tables have come across in my TCS 3 imported projects with respect to the css/html. They looked fine when I imported them & haven't had any reason to change them in RH (yet).
