    Large bullets

    rhxpt Level 1

      Hi,

      I am using RH 7.0. My bullet styles use the default discs and squares. In the WYSIWYG editor, the bullets are small and "elegant". However in the preview and in the actual CHM file they are very big, the size of the text, and really very ugly.

      Is this correct? If not, how do I make them smaller?

       

      Thanks,
      Jackie

          Hi,

           

           

           

          The best way to get this done, is to use CSS. Open your CSS in an external editor (such as notepad).

           

          Add: UL {font-size: 10pt;}. Change the value until you’re comfortable with it.

           

          This setting won’t affect the text size, as long as you apply a paragraph to the text. The font size of the paragraph overwrites the font size of the list.

            Thanks, I have tried doing this but it doesn’t help. I entered the line at the top of the CSS file. Should it be in any specific location in the file?

              Hi,

               

              Normally, it doesn't matter where the definition is. If you have other styles in your css that also target the list, the browser uses that last definition. Try moving the definition to the end of your css.

               

              Another question. How do you insert the bulleted lists? Do you select a paragraph style, or do you click the unordered list button? The way you insert a list determines the html that RH uses.

               

              Greet,

                Okay, I placed it at the bottom of the css file, but still no change.

                 

                I use paragraph styles for the 3 levels of bulleted lists in the help.

                  I have just noticed that the size of the bullet has changed in the WYSIWYG editor, but still not in the CHM...

                      Hi,

                       

                      There's obviously something more here. Can you post an example topic and your css so I can have a look?

                      Note: The WYSIWYG does not always show you what you get

                          Hi,

                           

                          The font-size of the list item <li> was upsetting the global style. Also, the lists did not render correct in Firefox. Please try the modified css, I attached it to this post. Note: It may take some time before you can download the file.

                           

                          I did the following:

                           

                          1. Remove the font-size from the list-items.

                          2. Replaced the margins from the paragraphs to the list-items.

                          3. Added margin-top and margin-bottom to the global UL style, to fix the gap between your lists.

                           

                          If you have any other questions or problems, please post back.

                           

                          Greet,

                            Hi William,

                             

                            Thank you so much for your trouble. I am sorry that I have not managed to check this yet, but I suddenly have a very pressing deadline for something else.

                             

                            Have a good week,

                            Jackie
