Thanks for that advice! That parallels what Rick Quattro helped me with yesterday. 

I also want to say thanks to this entire group for all the help over the years. An amazing source of information. I brag about the ability to get answers to the rest of my department (who are working in another authoring tool that takes ages to get answers, let alone solutions). When I posted my question yesterday, I had people offering assistance within about 10 minutes. Don't doubt the power of this community!

Happy Friday!

Hi Kristy,

if the Bold font is available and the corresponding character format is defined and used correctly in the template, the only reason would be a "AutonumCharFormat" defined in the EDD that overrides the template (specifying a different character format).
Of course, this would not explain why you can apply another formatting, like Bold Underline...

About the tables: I could try to answer a specific question, but my range of experience with this issue is limited.

Kristy Nolan:

Hi, fellow Framers –


I am working on cleaning up our EDD for our manuals, Frame 11. We have 3 types of alerts (note, caution, warning) that pretty much follow the same rules, so are set up the same as much as possible. I have the caution and warning doing exactly what I need them to do with Autonumber Format as “Caution:� or “Warning:� and the Character Format as “Bold Underline.� Since I am trying to match (where possible) our Arbortext DTD and styles, I need the “Note:� to be just Bold.


However, the bold is not showing up. I can change it to everything else, including Bold DoubleUnderline or Blue, and it displays as prescribed. Just not plain bold. Spacing all works, nesting/indenting works fine. What can I be missing?


Also, if you are good at table format structuring and are willing to answer questions, I am having trouble with those. Right now those are still just done in my template through table designer with only the very basic set up in the EDD.


Thanks for any advice anyone can give on this!
