Callouts in Flare

Postby acceb on Wed Sep 07, 2022 2:24 pm

Hi! Could someone help me create a callout like the one I've pointed out from MadCap documentation in the image I've attached? I can't seem to figure it out. :( Thank you!

Welcome to the forums! ;)

I wouldn't call that a callout. I'd call that a type of notification or alert box. (The term "callout" typically refers to some kind of label on an image.)

You might find this Madblog article of interest. The author explains how to use divs to create notifications like this. https://www.madcapsoftware.com/blog/creating-multi-paragraph-notes-with-css/

The same blog author also has an article on creating single-paragraph notifications. See https://www.madcapsoftware.com/blog/single-paragraph-note-styles-with-css/.

I hope these help.

Thank you so much, Nita! You're correct, callout was the wrong term and probably why I wasn't having any luck figuring out how to do it. :lol: I'll take a look at the links you shared. Thanks again!
