Recently upgraded to RH 2019 and have some queries around lists and page breaks.
Because I can only output to PDF as printed documentation (no Word supported output) is there any control around page break rules for lists? Specifically numbered lists.
I have a numbered procedure with several steps. Below each step I have a screen shot. The screen shot has been added using a <br> tag so the indentation remains and I do not get a new number. In the case of publishing to PDF, I am running in to areas where my text is at the bottom of a page and my image is then shown on the next page. I want to define keep together/page break rules for my lists so I can avoid this.
It was previously an issue for me so I would output to Word and then go through my docs manually to put in page breaks.
Any solutions for this?
As far as I can see, PDF programs do not allow you to add page breaks but perhaps this workaround would help. Both Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader allow you to convert a PDF for Word. You could then insert page breaks before saving back to PDF.
See www.grainge.org for free RoboHelp and Authoring information.
So the only page break control I have is at the heading level and that's about it from what I can see.
And I assume there are no plans for RH to go back to providing MS Word output or some other generic file format that Word can open which I could use instead.
Your assumption re a Word compatible output is wrong. See the RoboHelp
Reimagined sample project or the RoboHelp Tour on my site.
I don't know when.
Putting a page-break-inside: avoid statement in the CSS li element worked for me. However, this also means that with multi-level lists (MLLs), the root <li> also doesn't break so that the whole 2nd level stays together. So if you use MLLs, you need to do some intelligent selecting in the CSS if you want to try this.
