Get Out Your Markers! Using ::marker in CSS to Jazz Up Your Lists

May 20, 8:00-9:00 am (Pacific Time) Online Webinar
Presenter: Daniel Ferguson, Certified Flare Instructor, Owner | Smart Output

For years, lists have been pretty much stuck with the same staid bullet and numbering styles. The CSS ::marker pseudo-element changes that game entirely! With just a few adjustments to your stylesheet, you can jazz up both your unordered and ordered lists to add visual variety and appeal to your output.

And the best part--everything in this session works for both HTML and PDF output.

Join veteran MadCap Flare trainer and consultant Daniel Ferguson as he demonstrates how to use ::marker in your Flare project. And along the way, you'll also learn a little bit about the CSS counter() function.

Note: This session assumes an intermediate familiarity with CSS selectors. To prepare, we recommend checking out the following webinar.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Part 5: Techniques to Build Your Documentation Portal.

If you have been following this entire series, the first three episodes, Part 1 and Part 2, and Part 3, presented CSS theory. Then in Part 4 we put that CSS theory to practice, and now with this webinar we will be using those foundations to establish techniques for establishing your overall design look and feel.

We will start by exploring the various components that will combine at run time to create the overall customer portal experience. We will be touching on MANY different parts of the MadCap Flare project and bringing them together. Skin files, Master Page files, style sheets, the Responsive Design panel and more will all be used in this session.

Techniques demonstrated will include:

  • How Skin files, Master Page files and Topics relate
  • Using the MadCap Flare Responsive Design panel
  • Creative use of the stylesheet
  • How to use different style sheets and/or Master Pages between the body topics and the splashy home or welcome topic

Join Mike Hamilton, VP of Product Evangelism, as he takes you through his fifth and final detailed presentation on Building a Documentation Portal.
