Thank you, I will do some more testing. So far I've created bullet formatting under Paragraph Styles called p-Bullets1, p-SubBullets, p-TableBullets, p-Bullets. I've also created bullet formatting under List Styles called l-Bullets, l-Bullets1, l-SubBullets, l-TableBullets. I did some testing with current text and I'm still having issues with the bullet type carrying through instead of letting a new bullet style being displayed in the drop-down text.
Did anyone ever figure this out? I am having the same problem, but in addition to bullet and numbering styles, the dropdown text is inheriting other qualities from the Hotspot format, including font color.
What can I do to maintain the formatting in the drop down text independently from the text formatting of the hotspot?
I worked with a consultant to figure this out and I'm still in the process of revising the css to a standard for the company.
I can get bullets and numbering on drop-downs to work, but it's a manual process to fix all the formatting on all the projects. I changed the color of the original bullet that had drop-down text and it did not carry the color to the drop-down text. I used a diamond bullet on the main topic and an open circle on the drop-down and both appeared fine.
When I worked with the consultant, we looked at my html code and found some formatting codes that were causing problems. Since we've been using RoboHelp for years, some of the codes may not have transferred well between versions. I'd suggest looking at the html code.
@djmn2142: Could it be that your dropdown is actually inside another list? That might explain why you are seeing another list style. Could you please share an example topic and your style sheet? I'd like to take a look. You can send both to contact [at] wvanweelden [dot] eu.
@Panitzke: Never seen this problem before. Are you using some paragraph style that might be responsible for the strange text. Could you please share an example topic and your style sheet? I'd like to take a look. You can send both to contact [at] wvanweelden [dot] eu.
