When I convert my existing Classic 2019 to the New UI RoboHelp 2019, the multi level list style does not apply to the converted project. My stylesheet converts with all of the styles defined in classic but the multilevel list style does not appear to be applied during conversion. Has anyone else encountered this? Does anyone have any idea how to fix it automatically? I have several projects to convert with many instances of multilevel lists. See one example below. Thanks, Amy

I forget what the latest patch level is for RH2019 - are you offered any updates when you check? IIRC, the list conversion got fixed in a patch (but whether it was in RH2019 or RH2020, I don't recall).

I just set this up in 2019 Classic.

<?rh-list_start class="NumberedSteps" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="NumText" style="text-indent: -20px; margin-left: 40px;">Enter your&#160;current <span style="font-weight: bold;">Password</span>.</p><?rh-list_end ?>

 

This is mine from the supplied BasicNumber multi-level list.
<?rh-list_start class="BasicNumber" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p>item</p><?rh-list_end ?>

 

There doesn't appear to be a NumberedSteps list supplied with Classic.

 

More importantly though, I see you have applied a paragraph style over the top of the list style. Maybe that is what is messing it up.

I created the Multilevel list style NumberedSteps in Classic. When you create a new Multilevel List style, you can apply a paragraph style within the list setup, in the Paragraph Style dropdown, under Style. So I didn’t do a separate application of a paragraph style. It was applied automatically within the existing functionality of Classic MultiLevel lists. I tried choosing Normal style and also no style in that dropdown, and then converting but the numbering still did not convert correctly.

The converson process is not recognizing that

<?rh-list_start class="NumberedSteps" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="NumText" style="text-indent: -20px; margin-left: 40px;">Step 1

should convert to:

  <ol class="NumberedSteps">

    <li class="NumText NumberedSteps" style="text-indent: -20px; margin-left: 40px;">Step 1</li>

The same thing happens when I try to convert a Multilevel List style using bullets. No bullets appear.

Classic

<p>Most cases are created based on:</p>

<?rh-list_start class="Bullets" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="Bullets1" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">number of conditions.</p><?rh-list_end ?>

<?rh-list_start class="Bullets" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="Bullets1" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">types of conditions.</p><?rh-list_end ?>

<?rh-list_start class="Bullets" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="Bullets1" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">number of medications.</p><?rh-list_end ?>

<?rh-list_start class="Bullets" level="1" style="list-style: rh-list; list-style: rh-list;" ?><p class="Bullets1" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">estimated expense.</p><?rh-list_end ?>

<p class="Bullets1">&#160;</p>

RH2019

<p>Most cases are created based on:</p>

  <p class="Bullets1 Bullets" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">number of conditions.</p>

  <p class="Bullets1 Bullets" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">types of conditions.</p>

  <p class="Bullets1 Bullets" style="text-indent: -30px; margin-left: 40px;">number of medications.</p>

  <p class="Bullets1 Bullets" style="margin-left: 40px; text-indent: -30px;">estimated expense.</p>

  <p class="Bullets1"> </p>

Yes apologies. For reasons I have never understood multi-level lists allow that whilst tables do not, which is what I had been thinking of.

 

It's late here so I will set up a test in the morning.

So in short, the numbering is lost. I just set up a test using a paragraph style in the multi-level list style and got the same problem. It's also the same if you upgrade the Classic project to 2020.

 

It's a bug that I will report to Adobe. Meantime I think you will have to apply a mulitlevel list style in your 2019 project.

Thank you Peter for looking into this and reporting the bug to Adobe. I work at a very large company with several technical writers attempting to convert several large projects to 2019. We use multilevel lists quite a bit. Applying this manually is not a good option for us.
