[Framers] HTML 5 and hanging indents

2019-03-29 Thread Doug
My numbered lists use an 18 pt tab and Left indent, so they line up great in FM and in PDF. Not so in HTML. The hanging indent is 1 or 2 points short, so it hangs too far toward the margin. Is there no way to fix this? I've been playing with the settings in STS file for 30 minutes and nothing

It can be good to have virtual machines with plain-vanilla installations of whatever operating systems and browsers you support to check appearance. Though if RoboHelp's default font-family substitutions are good, you might not have to worry about it. In the past I've just used the automap

You can change the fonts in the publish configuration. As mentioned, you must choose fonts that are generally available on browsers, otherwise the results will look bad. You often need a machine that does not have your default fonts on it to test this. Play with all the possible settings, you

You will never have the same fonts in HTML in every browser, even if you stick to Arial. The thing in HTML is to set up alternatives in font use. I don't know if it is possible in any automation in FM, but generally it is set in the CSS. Cheers, Bodvar mán., 1. okt. 2018 kl. 16:51 skrifaði

That's a general issue with HTML. You don't know what fonts readers will have installed on their computers. Read up on web-safe fonts and the CSS font-family property. On Mon, Oct 1, 2018 at 7:41 AM Doug wrote: > > Thanks for the advice on using File > Publish, the Responsive HTML5 results >

Thanks for the advice on using File > Publish, the Responsive HTML5 results are much better than the alternative I was using. However, I noticed that some fonts we use end up getting substituted, so the web version looks visibly different from the PDF. I've been making changes on the Style

Save as HTML was never good for much. With FrameMaker 6 through 11, if you wanted professional-looking HTML output, you used WebWorks, RoboHelp, or MIF2Go. >From FrameMaker 12 on, you can use the built-in subset of RoboHelp features ("multichannel publishing"), though WebWorks ePublisher has some

Let me see if I'm doing this right! The 'Save As HTML' is somewhat deprecated and clunky. It has some uses, but it is not able to produce a slick output. Trying the options in the Publish pod is a better bet. On Fri, Sep 28, 2018 at 11:37 AM Doug wrote: > Frame 2017. I had been trying Save

Hi Doug I've generated this webhelp from unstructured FrameMaker: www.flowtime.be/samples/enfocus_pitstop_webhelp/Multivolume/Output/wwhelp.htm Generated with WebWorks ePublisher. I don't know which version of FrameMaker you're using, but the latest versions have their own built-in

[Framers] HTML

2018-09-28 Thread Doug
I've been making PDFs using Frame unstructured, but now I'm facing the challenge of adding HTML output to my list of tasks. I'm familiar with HTML, but making it from Frame is something I've not done before. Can someone point me to online examples of user guides that have been converted to HTML?
