Custom Numbered List PDF Output

Postby wl606 on Fri Apr 16, 2021 8:26 am

Hi. I was wondering if Flare gives you any way to create a numbered list where the numbers are white and have circle behind them, like the attached.

I've tried all of the CSS tricks I've found on the internet, but they don't seem to play well with Flare. I can get the numbers white with a gray background color for instance, but not a circle shape even though I'm specifying the border radius as 50%.

Not as far as I know (would love to learn a new trick if it's possible!). Flare doesn't recognise a negative number for a background position so you can't use a background image and move it to the left of each <li> element as you would with a web page. The times I've had to do this, I've fudged it with images for each number.

Maybe use a circle frame font like this https://catalog.monotype.com/font/monot ... 20negative
