How do I change the formatting of the default numbered list?

I've started a new RH 10 project and whenever I convert a paragraph into a numbered list by clicking the numbering button on the toolbar, the font changes to Arial. I need it to match my Normal style.

In all other RH projects if I click the numbering button, it creates the list but doesn't change the rest of the formatting. What's happening?

I've looked in the help but it tells me I need to define a new style etc etc. I've never done this before so am rather confused.

Is there a way of changing the formatting of a numbered list to match my Normal style so I can just click the toolbar button to convert a paragraph to a list?

It's probably because the body tag is set to Arial.


Normal is equivalent to a p tag, whereas lists are ul/ol/li tags and will inherit the font from body unless otherwise configured.


So you have a couple of options for editing the stylesheet in the RH editor (double-click on the stylesheet):

  1. You could change Other > Lists to your required font.
  2. You could change Other > Background + Text (BODY) to your required font. With this option, all your text should use this font, unless you define a different font for a specific style (e.g. for headings).

If you change Background + Text (BODY), you might like to edit your stylesheet in a text editor and remove the font-family entry for the p tag, but this depends on how comfortable you are with css.

Can you copy the .css from a "working" project and paste that into the appropriate folder of your new project?  (Maybe rename the existing .css so that you still have it, just in case.)

Thanks yes I could do - and might have to. I just wanted to understand how it's working.

If the behaviour I'm seeing is not usual then I'll put it down to a glitch. But I thought it might be something I need to learn my way around.
