Can you expand on what you mean by:
The fonts in my source files are set to Verdana
How are the fonts assigned in your source files?
Is the CSS you use for the topics overwritten in the SSL settings? (You can assign a different style sheet on generation.)
The fonts, I believe, come from FrameMaker. (The RoboHelp project links to FrameMaker files.)
I checked the SSL settings by popping open the properties for my target. I'm not seeing any assignment for a CSS. Am I looking in the right place? However, the project only has one .css sheet. When I popped open a few topics and checked the code, the topics are pointing towards that .css sheet.
For a quick fix, in the SSL settings, assign the CSS you want to use. That will make sure all topics use the correct styling. And yes, you're looking in the right place.
As to find out what is going on: FM complicates the matter. What are your linking settings for the CSS styles? Also, do the topic look correct when you open them in RoboHelp after you generated them from the FM documents?
- CSS in SSL settings: alas, I've looked over the entire SSL target settings and within the RoboHelp Help and can't seem to find them. Could I trouble you to tell me specifically where to find them? I'm using RoboHelp 11.
- Linking settings: In RoboHelp, I link to FrameMaker files by clicking File > Link > FrameMaker Document, and then link to the .book file.
- Topic appearance after opening in RoboHelp: Yes, when I look at the linked source files they are showing the correct fonts (sans serifs). When I look at the backend HTML, the code does not reflect any changes to the fonts. However, after I publish, the output fonts have serifs. I looked in the SSL target settings and didn't locate any setting that changed the font appearance.
