Hi all. Can someone help me understand how to set styles the way I want? I have read the manual over and over, and read the threads here.
It’s a trivial “site” (used as a handbook) with no widgets or graphics or user-entry of anything.
I want to have just 2 Masters - Table of Contents and Bullet-List Page.
In the Bullet-List Page, all I want is a Title element at the top, and an HTML item that can hold a bulleted list of paragraphs, with some “after” paragraph spacing.
Title Of The List
• Paragraph one that can wrap lines as you’d expect a paragraph to do - as many as needed
• Next paragraph
So I draw an HTML item on my Master, select it, and try to apply a style that has an Helvetica font for text, and in Paragraph I choose left aligned, bulleted list with round bullets, and spacing after of 12px.
Trying to apply this style gives me “this style can only be applied to text.” Well, there is no text on the Master - that gets filled in when a Page is created and content added, from the Master, right?
Even if I add a dummy text to the HTML item, still I can’t apply the style to the box itself.
How does one apply a style that specifies text and paragraph attributes to an HTML item box? Is it not possible? If not, how would I go about just defining these two styles and have them work when I create a new Page based on this Master?
This really has me stumped. I really want to use styles so I can change the Master in the future and have all of the Pages based on that Master update, say with font or paragraph spacing or a different bullet or a hanging indent. Isn’t that what a Master is for?
Maybe this can’t be done in Freeway Pro. I’d just appreciate hearing from people as to what I am doing wrong. Thanks.
