Unfortunately, yes. I made a brand new topic to test just that.
- Start up topic with my .css applied - check
- Put a sentence with a glossary term in it - check
- Make a drop-down hotspot - check
- Put a sentence with a glossary term inside of the drop-down hotspot - check
In both the View Selected Item eyeglasses and in the generated help, the results are the same:
My glossary term outside of the drop-down hotspot has the correct orange mouseover hover.
The glossary term inside the hotspot, however, does not.
Maybe RoboHelp is confusing itself and seeing an inline style when I click and drag the glossary term from the glossary list into the topic? Some wires must be getting crossed somewhere...
In the WYSIWYG editor, my glossary term does have a hover that says "Expanding Text". But that must be the way RoboHelp handles glossary terms; the "Expanding hotspot" and "Expanding text" appearances defined in my .css look nothing like my "Glossary term" and "Glossary text".
Ahhhh, methinks I see the issue. You are manually adding the glossary terms and manually inserting the definitions.
I don't belive the style sheet will work until you use the Glossary Hotspot Wizard to insert the terms. Click Tools > Glossary Hotspot Wizard and follow the prompts to enter hotspots this way and you should be set.
heh I figured the Glossary Hotspot Wizard would get mentioned. Most (if not all) of my experiences with that "tool" have been less than favorable.
In fact, just for another test, I added a new word to the glossary. Then I put that new word outside of a drop-down hotspot and then put one inside a drop-down hotspot. After running the Glossary sniffer, and telling it to look anywhere and everywhere for all instances of that specific term... what does RoboHelp do?
It says there's only 1 instance of that term, and it goes and only finds the one in the drop-down hotspot. Everything's spelled correctly and all, it just happened to overlook the first one. (And I ran the wizard about 4 times just to see if it'd find it).
So about the term that it decided to find in the drop-down hotspot? Still the same as it would be had I manually put it in there - no mouseover hover.
