Hi folks,

I really appreciate the support community, as I did deeper and deeper into the produce I've seen the same handful of names pop up across the board! Thanks for all your help!


I was wondering how to change the "Select a content category>>" text that displays in a traditional skin next to your content categories upon generation. Specifically this:




Is there a way to edit the text? Mine are focused on government levels and I'd like to make it easier for users.


Thanks! Happy New Year!

    Hi there


    I believe you do it as follows:


    Click File > Project Settings.

    Ensure the General tab has focus.

    Click the Advanced... button.

    Click the LNG File tab.

    Scroll the list to the [WebHelp] section.

    Locate the item that reads: ContentCategoryList=Select a content category.

    Click on it to select it.

    Click the Edit button.

    Change the text following the equals sign it to what you want it to read.

    ContentCategoryList=Change this text

    Press Enter to accept the change.

    Click OK to dismiss the dialogs.

    Generate and test!


    Hope this helps... Rick

    I'm not aware that the font for the dropdown can be changed.
