Where are Rh11 three Glossary Styles hiding?

Hello Rh gurus…

I am using Rh 11 (HTML).

Configuration/Settings: The Printed Documentation Section Layout is as follows:

  • Cover page
  • Copyright
  • TOC
  • Chapter Layout
  • Glossary (issue I am having with)

The problem: Rh generation insists the “Glossary Heading” to be centered (by default) on my printed Word document.

Word.dot template settings: I am able to set/save my “Glossary Heading” styles in my Word.dot Left Justified (under Modify Style).

Research: Per Rh documentation, there are three Styles used:

  • The glossary document uses three styles that are copied to the Word document:
    • Glossary Heading: The style used for the header letters (A, B, and so on). If the project has a specified language, the header letters are localized in that language.
    • Glossary Label: The style used for the glossary terms.
    • Glossary Definition: The style used for glossary definitions. Definitions appear on the same line as terms, with a hanging indent for subsequent lines.
  • Page numbers for the glossary document are Arabic (1, 2, 3, and so on).
  • By default, the filename is Chapter_{##}_Glossary.doc. ## is the number after the last chapter number.

Analysis: After generating Rh printed documentation, I see these Styles mentioned above in my Word document template (highlight and clicking the MS Styles Gallery). However, I do not see these Styles when attempting to map using the Rh mapping interface.

  1. I am using a Word.dot template (all other styles are mapped and come across correctly).
  2. I do not see the three glossary styles (mentioned above) in Rh .css file.

Question: Where are Rh three glossary styles, so I can map them?

Thank you for your time.

~PM

Are you using RoboHelp's own glossary or is it a topic you have created?

Sorry but I am not with you. RoboHelp has a Glossary option in Project Manager but some people just create a document and call it a Glossary. I think maybe you have found something more but you'll have to explain.

I surrender on this one. The problem is the styles are in the Word template and document but generating a document overrides whatever you set up in the template.

I amended Glossary Heading in the Style Mapping template to left aligned. After generating, the template still shows that style as Left aligned but the document shows it as centred.

The usual way around default Word styles is to create a variant such as Glossary Heading PG but in this case, as you point out, the required glossary styles do not show in the mapping. That rules out that workaround.

I also tried setting a number of other styles to left aligned in case there was some sort of inheritance issue but to no avail.

At present the only solution is to open the document and edit the style there.

Please follow this link to report bugs and request features. The more people who do so, the higher it gets prioritised.
