I tried posting this in the Framemaker Integration forum, but
got no takers. I was hoping someone here could help:
OK - I have a one page Framemaker 8 document that I'm pulling
into RH7 as a test. After LOTS of playing, I have gotten everything
PERFECT but one problem: the font on my numbered lists in RH is
Verdana 8 (as it should be), but the font of the actual NUMBERS on
the list is Times New Roman - only in Preview or compiled view.
In "Style Settings" I have checked off "Convert AutoNumber to
HTML List". In "Style Mapping" I have my Framemaker numbered styles
linked to a Normal (Verdana 8pt) style.
When I update from Framemaker, the text in the RH Design pane
looks great - the numbers in the list are Verdana 8. When I preview
or compile the page, however, the numbers change to Times New
I have discovered that when I switch to the "fmstyles.css",
everything looks perfect even in preview mode. However, when I
force an update from Framemaker, the custom .css gets recreated and
HELP! Please tell me I am not going to have to keep switching
.css files anytime I import a file from Framemaker.
I can't help with the Framemaker side of things, but if you
can't figure anything out on that side, there might be an easy
workaround in RH.
I have two sets of styles defined per style in RH. Admittedly
this is a legacy system, so possible a new stylesheet in RH7 might
The first thing I'd try, as you are using RH7, is to edit a
style in RH. You don't actually need to change anything, just click
OK for an existing property, for example, Format > Style, select
Normal, then click Format > Font and OK.
Check to see if this fixes the problem.
If not, open the stylesheet in your text editor of choice and
find your style. You should find two entries:
e.g. P.Numbered and LI.P-Numbered
Make sure both have the same font-size and font-family.
I believe the LI.P- style is the one that controls preview
and output, while the P. version controls the editor view.
Unfortunately I don't know how to force this each time you
import from Framemaker as I don't use that app. The best I could
suggest is to get the stylesheet set up correctly and save a copy
elsewhere, then copy it across after each conversion.
(One question, you say you have the Framemaker numbered style
linked to a Normal style. Is that in Framemaker? Perhaps there is a
numbered style you could link to instead?)
