I'm working with RoboHelp 2019 (2019.0.14) - not the Classic version. I'm using Responsive HTML5 Output (Azure Blue). When I stretch the screen across, the text stretches all the way across. Our UX expert asked that the text not stretch all the way across, but rather we have a maximum width defined. I could not figure out how to do this (I tried formatting the Master Page, but wasn't successful). Any ideas?

BR is the line break tag, not the body tag. Try this.     Set that in the topic CSS and you should be OK. I am assuming your master page uses the same CSS as your topics and you don't override it in your outputs. ________________________________________________________See www.grainge.org for free Authoring and RoboHelp Information

You need to go into the CSS and create left and right margins.

Do you mean in the Master Page? Where should the cursor be when I make the changes. When I tried it, the tag was "br" and I changed the margins marked in red in the attached image (but it didn't work). Is that what you mean?

You need to edit the body tag of the CSS applied to the topics.

I still wasn't able to get this to work. This is what I set in the CSS:

The text itself is marked with a style called "BodyText".
