I am currently using Robohelp 2015, although we may be upgrading to 2017 in the near future.
In the online help, I frequently use drop-down text.
The drop-down text is preceded by vertical arrow facing down.
I would like to change this to a horizontal arrow that becomes vertical when the user clicks on the link to open the drop-down text.
How would I do this in Robohelp?
Obviously, I would need to change the icon to a horizontal arrow. What do I need to do next to make the arrow rotate after the user clicks on the drop-down link?
Copy link to clipboard
The standard is pretty much a horizontal pointer that twists down when the dropdown is expanded. Anything else could cause a bit of usability issue for folks used to the norm.
However, if you do want to do this you simply change the images. RoboHelp is showing one image and when clicked it swaps it for the other one you have defined in your styles. Thus change the image that points down for one that points up.
RoboHelp is not twisting the image, it is changing it.

Hang tight - I'm uploading a video to demonstrate. Back soon
Thank you! That was very helpful.
