Glossary terms as footnotes need to change the font size

Postby jay6678 on Fri Nov 16, 2012 8:33 am

I actually like the feature where you can convert a linked glossary term to a footnote for print output. HOWEVER, I cannot for the life of me, format the font style and size of the footnote comment (when it is a linked glossary term being converted). I can change the number style, but not the actual text of the footnote.

I tried editing the properties of the Madcap|footnote for my print based output, but nothing happend. I have my target attributed to my stylesheet and print medium correctly. Everything looks great...but am I a missing something? Is there a stylesheet property in the Madcap|glossary that controls this?

For the record, I am creating a PDF as my print output, NOT Word.

If you take a look in the Output>Temporary folder, you should be able to find a folder with the name of your PDF target, with htm files in it. Take a look at the source of one of those htm files (one that has the glossary footnotes), and look at what class the footnotes are using. That should give you a clue as to what the CSS should be.
