Integrating lists in RC
Author Text

Dear rocket users,

perhaps you can help me making lists in rocket cake (RC) with same style as the surrounding context.
Makings lists seems to be a work for HTML-enthusiasts. For example this easy list:

Text start
- Tool 1
- Tool 2
Text end

must be solved In RC with separate HTML:
Text start
............ <HTML>
Text end

The HTML-code is like this:
....<p> <ul type="square">
........<li><a>Tool 1</a></li>
........<li><a>Tool 2</a></li>
....</ul> </p>

But with RC the result is not whats expected. The text in the list is always displayed in textstyles of <a> element (violet, smaller text high, other font-family). That looks very unsightly matching to the remaining text.
Has someone a useful solution to implement lists with same style as the surrounding text?

--- I had only this meanly solution: -------
In RC-source code the "<a>"-element has a style defined in "profil.html.css". Eg: Line 2: a: visited { color:5D5D9E; } (<=kind of violet)
My only solution is to over-define the CSS-Infos in HTML-code itself.
....<p><ul type="square"> <font size="2" face="Arial,MS Sans Serif">
........<li><a style="color:black;">Tool 1</a></li>
........<li><a style="color:black;">Tool 2</a></li>
....</font> </ul></p>
But this is very inflexible and extensive, e.g. when changing text size in responsive behaviors.

Perhaps its possible to localy redefine the automatic generated CSS-definition of the <a>-element in lists like a { font-size: 2em; color: black; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;}
But how and where? And then how to consider responsiveness without extending in @media-features?

Thanks in advance for helpful replys

Using the menu View -> HTML Code of the page -> Additional CSS styles, there you could enter your own css definition of this specific element.

An alternative would probably to create 'fake' lists, using the bullet symbol, like this:

&9679; entry 1
&9679; entry 2
&9679; entry 3

There is no list above, it is just text and the bullet unicode symbol. (Update: ok, this forum doesn't show this correctly. But you can put bullets in RocketCake by right-clicking, "Insert Text Symbol" -> "Bullet", that works)

Hello niko,

thanks for your reply.
I've tried your first suggestion about CSS-style. Added CSS like html_541d6bc3 {font-size:12pt; ...} will be integrated in the source, but it did not effect anything. That might have several reasons. But I can't find any help infos to these program points so it would finally be a experimenal way to follow this sugg.

Thanks for your bullet-information in your second suggestion. But my problem is solving the especial list feature of indenting text after line breake.
Now I try making container with two columns (5% for bullet, 92% for text, 3 %free for not braking the container after the bullet while resizing). This seems to function but reformating text or writing longer lists is the down side.
