How to format Mini-Toc

Postby TechWriter85 on Fri Sep 06, 2019 3:19 pm

Hello.

I have been reading "Using Styles to Determine the Look of a Mini-TOC," part of the Flare online help, but I do not see the information I need.

We would like to reduce the leading of the lines of our mini-TOCs, but I can't seem to make that happen.

I have changed the margin-bottom and margin-top values from 1.12 em to 0.5 em. No difference. Next, in the Style format window for p.MiniTOC1, 2, and 3, I changed those values to 1 pt. I'm accustomed to thinking in points, and paragraphs with 1 point of leading between them would be stacked very closely. No difference.

I am sure that I am editing the correct .css.

What am I missing?

Perhaps the space is from the padding values?

What do you mean with:

Please add picture

If you mean the leading blanks you have to change Margin-left of the MiniTOC
If i change MinitOC3 to 10pt you see in the preview what happens.

Hi, Beaver. Sorry it took me so long to reply.

Leading in this context is the vertical space between lines. For example, the leading between lines 1 and 2, below and between lines 2 and 3 is very different:

Line 1
Line 2

Line 3

In the mini-TOC, the leading is much bigger than we would like. We would like it to be more like the leading between lines 1 and 2 above, not 2 and 3. I've gotten a reply from MadCap but have not been able to get it to work .. yet. I'll post when I've got the right result.

The default padding between MiniTOC proxy lines is considered '0'. So any number above zero will increase the distance. You need to change the padding-top of each p.MiniTOC# to a negative number. Here is the CSS:

p.MiniTOC1
{
padding-top: -10px;
}

p.MiniTOC2
{
padding-top: -10px;
}

p.MiniTOC3
{
padding-top: -10px;
}
