CSS menu styles problem

Hello,

Am having a tremendous problem getting styles to stick on the new css menu action. Whatever I do I cannot make the correct style appear. The attached is the problem in a brand new FWY document.

Is anybody else having this problem?

Hi John-Paul,

Try removing the color and background attributes of the style (these
need to be done through the Action) and remove the p from the tag
field too as the menu items aren’t inside p tags, they are in list
items. Generally you don’t need to put anything in the tag field
unless you specifically need to target a particular tag.

Regards,

Joe

Thanks Joe - still lots of problems with style in FWY it seems. Just struggled for an hour trying to get an email link style right but gave up. Is there a list anybody has done of the major quirks in FWY? Some simple things still seem to be non intuitive.

Hi John-Paul,

What was the problem you were having? There shouldn’t be any quirks or
problems, if there are we would definitely want to know about them (at
Softpress, email support(a)softpress.com).

Remember with links there is now a link styling option in the
Inspector for the page and layer items and that an email link is no
different to a normal link on HTML text. There’s also the Text Link
Style Action if the link is in a non-layer HTML item.

Best regards,

I’ve no idea precisely what problems you’re having! There are minor
quirks in Freeway, as with most software, but perhaps the things
you’re struggling with might be to do with your workflow? How exactly
are you trying to set up a link style?

I think the problem simply comes from the fact that there are too many styles which have been set up randomly using the inspector. The inspector is a damnable thing sometimes. I remember reading here somewhere that a style should always be set up using the style menu first in a logical way.

I would love somebody to point out the indoisyncracies with styles - sometimes I remove a style but it defaults to another style - sometimes not - what a crazy world - always makes me go back to text edit! Anyhow maybe this is the kind of workflow problem that everybody has.

I have found that with the css menu that styles would sometimes not get applied. It was kindly pointed out (Walter or Joe I think) that I should remove the p tag which helped.

Unfortunately it does create problems from the css styles side of things.

Posolutely absatively! Since all my designs are layered pages I never ever use the menus for setting font styling as this always creates boat loads of flotsom styles. You save yourself alot of headaches in the long run if you create your basic CSS styles BEFORE starting your layout.
