Baffling Bullets

Jul 14, 2011 6:56 AM

I'm having bullet issues. I'm using a style called BulletList on some text. It looks fine in the RoboHelp application. It looks fine when I generate a chm file. But when I generate WebHelp, the bullet itself has moved to the right and appears superimposed over the second or third character of the text line.

Here's part of my CSS file:

 

}
p.BulletList {
margin-left: -20px;
margin-top: -1pt;
margin-bottom: 6pt;
list-style: url(bullet_graygreen_square.gif);
mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;
}
LI.p-BulletList {
list-style: url(bullet_graygreen_square.gif);
}
LI.kadov-P-CBulletList {
list-style: square;

 

Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    Your paragraph is indented 20 pixels to the left. You list element itself (that holds the bullet) is not indented. Try the following:

     

     

    p.BulletList {

     

     

    margin-top: -1pt;

     

    margin-bottom: 6pt;

     

     

     

     

    }

     

    LI.p-BulletList {

         margin-left: -20px;

     

         list-style: url(bullet_graygreen_square.gif);

    }

     

    This indents the entire list 20 pixels to the right. This should work for CHM and WebHelp alike.

     

    Greet,

    I'm having this same issue.  However, I don't know what style is used.  It's a project I inherited and up to this point haven't had to work with css files.  Where do I locate the css file used for the project?

    You can have a CSS associated with topics (right-click on the Topic and check its Properties to see that CSS) or have 1 CSS applied to all topics when the help is created (check the SSL recipe in that scenario)

    Sorry - Single Source Layouts - it's a pod you can turn on in your View - it will list all the types of output (WebHelp, FlashHelp, AIR Help, etc.)

    I successfully changed the settings for each topic that had the bullet list and it's now displaying correctly in the output.  Thanks a million!
