Never have I been as exasperated with a piece of software as
I am with RH 7. I've sworn by Adobe products before but this has
been a tremendous letdown. Grumbling out of the way, I need to ask
for some help.
I've been able to define and apply paragraph styles
successfully for FM books that I'm importing into RH. I did that
according to the direction given by the online presentation
provided by Adobe (that is, I've defined everything in the
fmstyles.css with a dummy file, etc.).
The problem is that my character style of bold, defined and
properly mapped, is not being rendered in the output. What is
behind this? Could someone provide some insight?
I dumped variables, because I found they were being converted
into bullets. I don't see conditional text working and the
auto-numbering is a joke...I don't believe there's a single person
out there that's able to get it to work without manipulating the FM
files or working the HTML files in RH.
I don't want to solve all these problems. I've spent too much
time as it is trying to get some kind of usable output.
I just want to know why I can't rely on the character style
Just to add one thing here, which I find even more
perplexing. I am using the dummy file and have applied the
fmstyles.css to it. I understand see that Paragraph Styles are
applied correctly in the rest of the topic (the rest of the FM book
If my Paragraph Styles are working, then I have to assume I
am correctly defining in fmstyles.css and correctly mapping from FM
to RH. Strangely, when I copy and paste text from one of those FM
book files into the dummy file, my Character Styles appear
What am I missing?? Why does my Character Style work in the
dummy file but not in the rest of the book/topic?
Any help would be appreciated...
