Version 2015 Robohelp. I'm trying to turn off the color change for visited hyperlinks and can't find where to do so. All documentation I've seen says to use Edit Stylesheet in the CSS section of the Edit menu option. Open the Hyperlink option and nothing I can see has an option for Unvisited or Visited.

I don't do any CSS editing through RoboHelp - I'm using Dreamweaver as my HTML editor - so I can't offer help regarding how to change it through the RH UI. That said, in my CSS file, I have these definitions for my hyperlinks:

a:link {

    color: #0000ff;

    text-underline: single;

    text-decoration: underline;

}

a:visited {

    color: #0000ff;

    background-color: #ffffff;

    text-underline: single;

    text-decoration: underline;

}

As you can see the difference between the two is background-color: #ffffff;

An easy way to do what you want is to open your CSS file with a text editor - Notepad will work fine - and search for the your definition for "a:visited" and to either remove the entire line or add /* at the beginning of the line and */ at the end of the line - this makes the line hidden from the browser.

Thanks Rick. I missed the "Pseudo class" drop-down. How did I miss that?

prhmusic2,

Got it resolved. Per usual, I missed a field (Pseudo). Thanks for the reply;

Tom
