Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new style sheet, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
If you've been following along with me in this chapter, you know that every…project has its own default CSS file, or Cascading Style Sheet.…When you import topics, they may come with their own CSS files as well, but you…can also create your own and even edit existing ones. That's what we're going to…do right now as we continue with our How To Use LDC project here.…Let's start by looking at a list of CSS files by going to the Formatting…toolbar. Just after the zoom level of 100% here,…you'll see the Assign Style Sheet or Create New.…
When you click this you're going to see the default up at the top.…You'll see a number of style sheets that came in with various topics here, and…in fact the list is so long you can't even see at the bottom that there is an…option to create a new one, so what do you do?…Well, in that case, you go to Edit, go down to Properties, and here with the…Appearance tab selected we see all of the style sheets.…We see one is selected.…It's the one that's been applied to our current topic here, and we also have the…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
