Windows XP RoboHelp 8 (FrameMaker 9) Dreamweaver
I have been given a large html document of API Functions that I have imported into RH. Most of the information is in tables that don't have an id. I want to change the table formatting, but don't want to do it manually to each instance. I tried making a table style and applying it to the tables, but it didn't bring over all the formatting.
I do not know much html or css, but I'm wondering if that would be the only way to change the table formatting?
As far as I can tell, the tables are not identified with any type of tag in the html.
I messed around in DW with the css editor and created table properties, but don't know how to apply it to the existing tables in the html.
At a loss...
Are you wanting to change the styles of the text within the tables or the look of the table cells/rows (borders/shading, etc.)?
I would like to change the table styles (borders, shading).
Borders and shading are controlled in the <table> tag (select the table in the RH Design view and click the HTML tab -- the entire table will be selected in the HTML tab. Scroll to the top of the highlighted text and the <table> tag is the first tag displayed in the selected content). You can do a global Find and Replace on the <table> tag to make them all consistent.
