Test III does give the expected results. Despite there being a master page assigned, you can override the CSS. So if there is no CSS applied the default font (Times New Roman) is applied.
As for the other non-expected tests, you'll need to do a bit of detective work. The problem could be one of two things.
- Your source style mapping. If you still have messy styles in your source and have not mapped them to the Normal RoboHelp style, these can cause the override.
- There is some style sheet override inside the topic content. You can assign a style sheet to a project, topic or topic content.
One way to find out what is going on is to roll up your sleeves and jump into the HTML. Perhaps you can post an example here of what you see for one of the errant styles.
Sorry for late response, I had a family emergency on Thurs. I will do some research and will follow up shortly.
I have looked at some of your content, but will take a deep dive today. Thanks for your continued support. I REALLY need to resolve this a.s.a.p.
P.S.: When I performed "Removing any inline formatting and applying proper styles will help. To remove all inline formatting from a Word document, press CTRL A to select all the text and then press the spacebar." ...it reduced the contents of the ENTIRE 252-page document to two show/hide symbols...
I ran through the tutorials and I what I am seeing is this:
- When I first link a new source doc, before I generate the topics, I have an opportunity to set custom styles via File>Project Settings>Import tab>Edit button.
- I also see where I can then modify those settings in the same dialog box and bring in the same or updated content with the newly modified settings and they do display in the project and WebHelp.
- Editing the correct .css (in my case the RHStyleMapping.css) in the Project Manager pod also persists when I publish AND when I
Either my real source document is fundamentally flawed, or I somehow missed a step and broke my project forever.
I am now heading back to give my ugly source document another go. Fingers are crossed!
P.S.: IF essentially ALL topics in my source document have inline styles, is any of this possible?
THAT DID IT! It was the inline formatting that was locking everything up! I just ran a quick test and the topics now look as I expected them to.
Thanks so very much to you and Mr. RoboColum(n)!!!!!
