PDF output: now tweak the size and style of topic headers

December 9th, 2016

It is now possible to use different size for the topic titles in the PDF, depending on the topic level.

Use the following Custom CSS to tweak the sizes of the topic titles based on their “toc level”:

#topic-body .pdf-topic-level-1 h1.topic-header {
border-bottom: 10px solid #FF0000;
font-size: 32px;
color: #FF0000;
}
#topic-body .pdf-topic-level-2 h1.topic-header {
border-bottom: 5px solid #0000FF;
font-size: 26px;
color: #0000FF;
}
#topic-body .pdf-topic-level-3 h1.topic-header {
border-bottom: 3px solid #00FF00;
font-size: 20px;
color: #00FF00;
}
#topic-body .pdf-topic-level-4 h1.topic-header {
border-bottom: 1px solid #808080;
font-size: 14px;
color: #808080;
}


Square bullets

December 7th, 2016

square-bulletsNow available, a new “square” CSS class for turning your bullets into squares.

Here’s how to make a specific set of bullets use square bullets:

* item 1
* item 2
**(square) item 2.1
** item 2.2
** item 2.3
* item 3

(in the above example, the 2nd level set is made square).

So basically, you set the (square) class on the first bullet in a set.


New: force page breaks in PDF output

November 25th, 2016

In some case, users wanted more control over page breaks in the PDF output.
So we implemented a special “page-break” CSS class that can be set to paragraphs, forcing a page break before the paragraph.

To use it:

p(page-break). Paragraph body text, just proceed as you normally would, nothing to see here.


Fix: Expanding/collapsing in editor

November 22nd, 2016

toc-problemsIn some cases, collapsing then expanding a topic in the Table of Contents could cause an “overlapping text” display problem.
This happened primarily after having dragged a topic to a new location.

Fixed now!


Fixed for PDF output: image scaling problems in tables

September 21st, 2016

When using images in tables, this could create problems in the PDF output, that is, the images not scaling properly to fit the table width.

This scaling can now be corrected by setting a CSS class “table-wide” to your table, by inserting this line before the table contents:

table(table-wide).


Table of Contents in editor now remembers expanded/collapsed status of each entry

August 22nd, 2016

editortocIf you have a LOT of topics in your manual, this will make your editing live easier: the Table of Contents in the editor now remembers the expanded/collapsed status of each entry in the ToC.
In other words, collapse a top-level topic once and it will stay closed, which will save you a lot of scrolling around.


Fix: Double height live manual top bars

August 5th, 2016

Live manuals with long company names and/or manual names could cause the top bar to become double height, especially on smaller screens. Not a problem by itself, but the double height bar overlapped the topic title, making it unreadable.

After today’s tweak, the top bar now nicely pushes the content down, leaving everything visible.


Improved look of Info and Warning banners

July 22nd, 2016

Today we made a minor change to the styling of the Info and Warning boxes, making them a bit tighter, with less spacing around the icon on the left:

info-banner

warning-banner

At the same time, we fixed a problem in the styling of these boxes in the PDF version. These now have the same look as the online manuals.
