HTML5 vs Mobile App Output

I am working in FM 2015, and I was under the impression that the mobile app output would look essentially the same as the HTML5 output in terms of how the text is presented. However, I just discovered that a paratag using checkboxes appears correctly in HTML5, but appears as o's (i.e. incorrectly) in mobile app. I thought my style settings applied to all outputs across the board, so I'm not understanding why it appears one way in one output and another way in a different output. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi

Thanks for reporting the issue.

You are right, Mobile output should look similar as HTML5. It might be some font on mobile device it not available.

Can you please provide more details at amitjha@adobe.com?

On which mobile device you are checking the output?

Can you please share the sample FM document you are getting the issue with?

Have you checked the output on the same mobile device browser.

Thanks

Hi,

The issue is due to non-availability of font on mobile device. If you generate HTML5 and view on mobile you will get same behavior. As a workaround you can replace your checkbox with the image of checkbox. Detail steps are mentioned below:

1) Open para designer and in your checkbox style change “o\t” to “\t”

        2) Open sts editor(Publish Pod--> Edit settings) and in your checkbox character style. Provide background image and set Background-repeat to no-repeat.

        3) Generate and view mobile app.

         

         Thanks,
