Can I modify the styles for the table continuation markers?

In the Settings for a PDF Template you can choose to include table continuation markers (Continued from page x, Continued on page x), which is fantastic, but I can't find a style associated with these markers so that I can modify the text (font, size) or placement (left, right). Is this possible in RoboHelp 2022.3.93?

I worked it out. Try adding !important to the alignment.

 

text-align: left!important;

It's a guess but try looking in layout.css in the template files.

I checked there and in the content.css, but found nothing related to table styles at all, let alone the continuation markers. I suspect it is not something that has been exposed yet, but it would be nice to be able to customize those markers.

I'd generate it as is & then use your browser inspection tool to see what css is being applied to it - that might give you a lead on where it's hiding.

I tried this suggestion as well, with both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, but it seems that the inspection tool does not parse out the .css information from a PDF (unless I've missed something in the instructions; I'd never used a browser inspection tool before).

Sorry, I completely missed the bit where you talked about PDF - I was thinking HTML output.

At first I thought it was using the same style as the P tag but I disproved that. I have asked Adobe if it can be formatted now or if a feature request is submitted. I will let you know.

It used to be that PDF would go via a html process first. Sometimes you could view that output by killing robohelp part way through generation. I haven't tried in RH2022 and I doubt Adobe would recommend the technique, but it's something you could try. Also note I only ever tried viewing the output in a text editor, not in a browser.

@mai-ann.sprung 

I have been given this code by Adobe. Put it at the end of your layout.css file. The text I have put in blue is mandatory, the definitions in between are whatever you want.

 

div.table-cont::-ro-before-break {
font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
text-align: center;
font-weight: bold;
color: red;
}

div.table-cont::-ro-after-break {
font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;
text-align: center;
font-weight: bold;
color: blue;
}

Hi Peter, thanks so much for this fix. I did copy the text provided into the layout.css, and that got me partway there...

Font size, color, etc. is working, but the text-align code is being ignored. Is there another way to set the alignment?

That did it! I had hoped that the right alignment would align the marker with the table, but it doesn't. But the left side works, and that's good enough for now.

 

Thanks again Peter!
