Hi all, first time posting here.
I have some templates that we had made years ago that have stuck with us through several upgrades and we are now using in Framemaker 2017. They still work fine for print and PDF outputs. However, I would like to start publishing them to EPUB and HTML5. I've been playing around with HTML5 so far and everything looks fine, except our "Bullet1" format comes across as an "n" instead of a bullet.
I've sorted out that this is due to it being defined as a wingding font (n presumably) in the master template. I'm just not clued in on either how to change it or what to change it to.
Any advice would be appreciated. I would rather not just start fresh with new templates as these do what we need them to do for the most part.

Hi Mike, check the mapping in your publishing pod settings. Set the Autonumber options to Convert to HTML List
From there you may still need to do some CSS work to get your custom bullets, but it'll give you the ul and li tags you want for easier formatting of the HTML.
That looks promising.... but you found that menu where? Sorry, upgraded from 9 a week ago still finding my way around.
re: I've sorted out that this is due to it being defined as a wingding font (n presumably) in the master template. I'm just not clued in on either how to change it or what to change it to.
Chances are that the "Bullet1" Paragraph Format has a Numbering property of something like:
Autonumber Format: [n\t ]
Either change it back to the FM default:
Autonumber Format: [\b\t ]
CharacterFormat: Default ¶ Font
Or find a Unicode font that mimics the WingDings bullet, use it explicitly with a new Character Format that invokes that font.
