    Using <PRE>...,</PRE>

      Hi,
      I'm cutting & pasting a sample from a report into an HTML page which has been imported into Robohelp 7. I'm using the <PRE>...</PRE> tags to preserve the layout, but Robohelp keeps using   spaces to rearrange it, whether I paste it into the WYSIWYG or the HTML. This upsets the layout. I've also tried specifying a Courier New (fixed width) font to no avail.

      Any thoughts?

          The HTML protocol deals with extra spaces (more than one) in this manner. The use of   is not an RH thing, but a W3 thing.

          You might try pasting the data into Notepad first, with the Courier New font selected. This will give you a guide in adding the proper amount of spaces, and should retain the format when you then copy/paste that into RH (in TrueCode mode).


          Good luck,
          Leon
