I've inherited a help system that uses a single CSS (RoboHelp
7). Some of the topics have a custom yellowish background; others
do not. Is there a way to select all files in the Topic List and
force them to have a white background? I've tried changing the
style sheet (using the Format | Styles command), but that doesn't
work. I can, of course, use the Borders and Shading control to
change each individual topic. That's going to kill me, though!
Isn't there a global setting?
This would seem to imply you have a bunch of topics that use
embedded styling. It's best to try and remember that CSS has a
hierarchy. The linked CSS file should be used to control as much of
your formatting as possible.
Each topic may have coding that will override the externally
referenced CSS file. If this is the case there is unfortunately no
choice but to hand edit the offending topic(s) to remove the
formatting. So if your CSS file specifies a background color of
yellow but specific topics always display baby blue, the topics
with baby blue probably have embedded code that overrides the CSS
file. You will need to edit each of these topics individually.
Sorry, but there is no way other than to use a global find and
replace tool to change these topics.
