I think the problem here is that no style has actually been defined for the bullets. In CSS, these are known as UL (Unordered List) and OL (Ordered LIst) tags. Likely, because RoboHelp has been made more HTML compliant, we now have to take an extra step to specifically define the font characteristics for the UL and OL tags in the CSS. Either that or just remember to apply Normal styling once you do a list. Ctrl+Shift+N should do it.
Many thanks for the swifty response.
Right - if I have understood correctly, I created an UL style thus:
If I now try to apply a bullet via the button in the Formatting toolbar, I get the same result as before (ie style = None etc),
but if I apply my new UL style via the Styles and Formatting pod, it works.
So progress of sorts, but I remain in a confused and frustrated state.
Many thanks for that.
I now have this arrangement:
This works. Also, bizarrely even the numbered list button works now (even though I don't have an OL style defined).
I don't pretend to understand this at all.
But it's working so I'll just have to live with not really knowing what's going on here.
I really appreciate your input.
