Hi,

As a control freak, I never use the RH css. I create custom style sheets, for print and for layout then turn off the RH style sheets. That's how I get around that. I don't have to deal with legacy help files much and those were created using Help Workshop.

My deal is how to get around the RH look for like the folders and stuff. It looks dated.

Hi, all.
I'm designing a help system from the ground up. Before I slave over a
couple dozen RoboHelp styles, I'm wondering, just how good do the RH
styles need to be? For example, let's say that for final help system
output, I want the second-level bullet to use a different font, use a
different color, display a certain bullet icon, indent to a non-default
tab that I need to set, and wrap around to a non-default location.
Like, say, this:

* Indented twice, let's say to a precise point, not a default, and in
lovely forest green Trebuchet MS, and refined by a few other
hairsplitting tweaks

But -- do I need to do all that in RoboHelp? Or, could I not bother
with formatting refinements and just create a basic "bullet 2" style
that can then be mapped to the .css "bullet 2." I might just change the
color and remember that bullet 2s are purple. Like this:
Regular body text regular body text regular body text regular body text
regular body text regular.
Bullet 2 text bullet 2 text bullet 2 text bullet 2 text bullet 2 text
bullet 2 text bullet 2 text bullet 2 text bullet 2 text
Could I reserve all my effort for the css and let the RH styles have
almost no definition?
Thanks.
