[Pro] Help! Problem with a Graphic Item

Would you take a look at this page and help me figure out how to keep the orange "Online Giving’ graphic item to the right of the blue ‘Ways to Give’ html item? It looks great in Freeway’s Page View, but not in the Preview View:

http://216.104.188.182/Champion/online.html

I’ve inserted a graphic item inside an html item. So far so good. When I preview that, everything lines up correctly. But when I import the actual graphic (Online.jpg) into the graphic item box, it kicks out to where it is now (under as opposed to staying to the right).

I know I’m missing something, but can’t figure it out. Anybody see my mistake?

Did you try and change the image alignment in the Inspector from “baseline” to either Right or Top?

Yes. In fact, I tried every single one of them. None of them corrected the problem.

Can you try and make the table size a bit larger in there? Perhaps a pixel or two larger to the right to see if that works.

It’s fiddly…

  1. Draw an HTML box.
  2. Go to Insert>HTML Item.
  3. Double-click inside the item and set the text.
  4. Double-click inside the main HTML box—not the HTML Item (3).
  5. When the cursor flashes, go to Insert>Graphic Item.
  6. Import the image.
  7. In the Dimensions palette, choose Align>Top. The graphic is on the right-hand side of the text, aligned with the top (of the text).

You’re right, it’s fiddly. . . I finally managed to get it to work, but I’m not exactly sure what the solution was - LOL!

One more unrelated question: How do you change the color of indented bullets to match your text? If you scroll to the bottom of the linked page, you’ll see what I mean:

You shouldn’t need this in 5.5 – Freeway hasn’t coded list items
incorrectly in quite a while. That Action was very important in
Freeway versions less than 3.5, I think. The key is to make sure that
any color effects you are adding to your text are added at the
paragraph level. It’s the difference (in code) of this:

<ul>
	<li><span class="red">Red text, black bullets</span></li>
</ul>

and this:

<ul class="red">
	<li>Red text, red bullets</li>
</ul>

You are better off using CSS to style the bullets. The List item Fix
action was originally written for FW 3 and is only really of any use
if you are stuck with FW 3 or 4.

To style your bullets in Freeway 5 or 5.5;

  1. Select Edit/ Styles
  2. Create a new style with li (list item) in the tag field and nothing
    in the name field
  3. Select color from the character section and add the bullet color
    you want
  4. OK the dialog and see your bullets in glorious color!

Regards,
Tim.

Well I didn’t say I had actually used it recently. It sprang to mind and the info on your page suggested that it would do the job.

Did wonder why it made my lists disappear with 5.4 and 5.5

Another method is to create a tag style.

If the list items are in an html box called listcontainer (Under the first tab in the inspector with the html container selected look for Title)

Create a new style and in the Tag box type #listcontainer (or whatever your container is called) tab into the Name box and delete whatever FW has helpfully put in there for you. Tab out and check it doesn’t come back. Then add the Color option in the Character section and choose your colour.

OK the dialogues. Now whatever you have in the html box ‘listcontainer’ (or whatever you called it) will now be coloured with the colour you chose.
