Technical Communication Suite 3.5 (which is FrameMaker 10 and RoboHelp 9). I am totally new to the TCS and have very limited experience with RoboHelp.
Problem: After I generate the project, the project now has the "out of the box" styles and formatting that are in the Master page I created in Step 1.
Question: Am I trying to do something that is impossible? Do I have to do one of the following:
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
By selecting Master Page in the output options you have told RoboHelp to apply that Master Page to all topics and that master page has been setup by you to have the default styles.
Try changing the Master Page to use the CSS you want or changing the option from Master Page to CSS.
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
I expect the HTML you're concerned with to be using the <para class="FM_(Style name from FM inserted here)">
If so, you'll want to map the FM para style to something in your CSS.
Peter is right, though, if your RH master page is using something other than your conversion CSS (RHStyleMapping.css by default) then you'll not likely get the formatting you are looking for
Thanks. I understand what you are saying.
I had read the "Using Master pages in RoboHelp 8" article online. The way I read this article, I thought perhaps I could get away without having a .css associated with the Master Page, but instead use the ones from the topics themselves. Either I read it incorrectly, it doesn't apply to RH 9 (it was written about RH 8), or it's a bug.
thanks for your help,
