Sorry for the oddness. Sometimes the forums have a hickey. I had a full reply but it simply would NOT allow me to post it. I see that from time to time and I'm not sure what causes it.
LOL, note that I didn't test it at all. Just was sharing a possibility.
Also, RoboHelp preview is sometimes quirky. ESPECIALLY when you are doing something like this where RoboHelp doesn't offer a native way to accomplish something.
You might want to try clicking the button in the top right corner of the preview and choose to preview in a web browser. You might be surprised at the difference.
Ha, yeah that didn't work. Do you see anything wrong with my css? I'm just getting my feet wet understanding css. I *believe* I created a paragraph called columns with the column property, and applied the column paragraph style in RH.
Oh well, until/unless someone else chimes in, I'll leave the list as it originally was. This was just a nice-to-have idea. The possibilities in the article you referenced look interesting though, if we can figure out how to implement it!
I think you need to define your columns for a div and wrap that around your paragraphs.
-webkit-columns: 300px 2;
Also, note the browser requirements at the bottom of the page - it won't work in IE9 for example and probably not with the RH preview window.
Thanks Amebr, that did it. I generated without the div first, to make sure it wasn't just a Preview thing, but it didn't work until I added the div. Of course, the client still supports IE9 (until September), so we can't use it for now, but it's nice to learn a new trick!
