Questions about multilevel lists

Hi,

TCS 5, FM12, RH11 all patched up. Multilevel lists are new to me. They are not HTML, they are more than that. They are also not quite working as advertised. So, do multilevel lists use JavaScript? How are they put together? What are the files that a multilevel list relies on for its construction when rendered?

Cheers,

Sean

How are you expecting them to look? The fact that you’re importing FM content means that you need to tell RH to consider a paragraph tag as a multilevel list item on the Conversion Settings screen.

  • Bullet1 indented less
    • Bullet2 indented more
      • Bullet3 indented more-er
        • Bullet4 indented most

     1) Step1First indented less using 1, 2, 3 numbering

     2) Step1 Indented the same as Step1First using 1, 2, 3 numbering

          a) Step2First indented more using a, b, c numbering

          b) Step2 Indented the same as Step2First using a, b, c numbering

               i) Step3First indented more-er using i, ii, iii numbering

              ii) Step3 Indented the same as Step3First using I, II, III numbering

                    I) Step4First indented most using i, ii, iii numbering

                   II) Step4 Indented the same as Step4First using I, II, III numbering

And, I want multi-line paragraphs to wrap correctly.

So, Bullet1, Step2First, etc., are the FrameMaker style name, and I map each of these to multilevel list.

Does that make sense? I've read a lot of docs on this by now, and none give me a good idea if I'm just doing it wrong. Anyway, here's what I see (bullets are okay):

     1) Step1First indented less using 1, 2, 3 numbering

     2) Step1 Indented the same as Step1First using 1, 2, 3 numbering

          a) Step2First indented more using a, b, c numbering

          b) Step2 Indented the same as Step2First using a, b, c numbering

               I) Step3First indented more-er using i, ii, iii numbering

              II) Step3 Indented the same as Step3First using I, II, III numbering

               I) Step4First indented most using i, ii, iii numbering

              II) Step4 Indented the same as Step4First using I, II, III numbering


Notice that Step3First/Step3 and Step4First/Step4 use the same autonumber and have the same level of indent, which is incorrect, though the list numbering does restart. Also, both use upper roman, which is incorrect for the Step3First/Step3 style.

I suspect this can be fixed up in the CSS applied – that’s what I did to fix my ordered lists’ indents & wrapping

Because of the extra CSS being dumped along with the HTML files being created, try renaming the sub-folder CSS (the one with the FM document name on it) & see if your multilevel lists start behaving the way your apply to all CSS says they should - it fixed my bullet & numbered list appearance issue when I just tested.
