I am using the Ocean layout in the 2017 release of RoboHelp (v18.104.22.1687).
My question is about how I can insert a [>] symbol to separate breadcrumbs text that is now running together, as shown in the image below.
I have actually done this already in a previous project using the same layout, but I cannot remember how I did this before.
Where are you managing your Breadcrumbs? Breadcrumbs placeholder? In a Master Page? Globally?
If it's via the breadcrumbs placeholder, you edit the placeholder and add the separator:
It's worth adding that the Ocean layout was dropped in the second update to RoboHelp 2017 for various technical reasons. It doesn't mean you cannot continue to use it but you may hit problems with it.
Also I can see that you have not applied the updates. When you do, if you have used any of the other layouts you should go to the Gallery in your output and take fresh copies.
See www.grainge.org for free RoboHelp and Authoring information.
I do realize that the Ocean layout was dropped, which is a shame because it best fits the look and feel that our company is going for. For us it is the best option for now. I have not applied the updates, because it causes the topics to be cut off in the middle of the page.
OK. As long as you are aware is what matters.
I initially was able to make this change by editing the css files. How can I open the dialog pictured?
In case this issue comes up for anyone else out there, I was able to resolve this by editing the main.css, main-rt.css, and bootstrap.min.css files by adding a content: '>'; string in several places in the breadcrumbs code.
