Styles aren't being maintained in output

Postby ktbCA57 on Wed May 01, 2019 12:41 pm

I have a large project, but i also have a target that includes only one topic that has to be built separately from the rest of the topics. when i build the full project, it's fine, all the styles show appropriately in the built and published versions. However, the single topic shows the styles in the project, but once built, the set styles aren't applied.

I have gone thru the topic and target properties to make sure the correct master stylesheet is applied... but still the output is missing the styling.

What am I missing?

Thanks!

Open the output in a browser window. Look at the source to see what CSS style sheets are being applied and in what order. Make sure that the CSS style sheet you are using shows up in the <head> tag. It looks like it is using the default browser style, as if it can't find a CSS file or if the CSS file isn't included in the output for some reason.

I think I saw in a different post that the target for the single page output is using "Exclude content not referenced directly or indirectly from the TOC" (or something like that; I can't remember the exact wording)?

If so, that setting might be related. Depending on the output and how it's set up, the stylesheet might be excluded? You could try specifically assigning the stylesheet to the topic. That should ensure it is included in the output.

So i went thru all of the properties steps yesterday... at least 3 times... making sure the correct css was set appropriately for the topic and the target... and that conditions were set appropriately.

Then, this morning I went in to check for both items in the suggestions... and as i was doing so, i saw that some how the topic was no longer linked to the right conditional tag in the target... now it seems to be fine...

figures. :oops:

Thanks guys!
