Thanks for the help. I've read many of Peter's tutorials this morning, and I will definitely import Word docs the correct way the next time I do this. I'm starting to think that RoboHelp is very complicated, but I will continue to learn with the trial version to see if it's the tool I want to use.
But for now, I have decided not to attempt importing again at this time, but rather, since I have all my content and images saved in various folders, I am just going to input my online help manually and import the images - time is of the essence here and I can't afford any more errors on my part as a novice.
I would just like to know if you can provide me information on these questions:
- With only one css in my online help (default.css), how come I can't change/add a style in the css and have it apply to the content? Is there an intermediary step? I have, for ex, created a new style in the css called bodytext with 12pt Arial, double line spacing. I then highlight the text in the content I want to have that style, then double click on bodytext in the Style and Formatting pane. It does not work. What I have to do is manually change the style of the text in the Design Editor every time.
- When inserting my png files, why does RoboHelp display them at a much smaller size in the browser (IE10)?
Thanks again gentlemen. Sorry to be so new at this, but I am trying to learn as quickly as I can.
When you create a new paragraph style it should be as simple as clicking in the paragraph to which it is to be applied and then either double clicking the style in the pod or selecting it in the dropdown. Try that with a pre-existing style and see if it works.
Images should be more or less the same in the topic and the browser. Is the reduction the same in all browsers?
