Style sheet not being correctly parsed in Assistant (QTextBrowser-based)/documentation of QTextBrowser's CSS support missing



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Reported
    • Priority: P3: Somewhat important
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 5.9.2
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Documentation
    • Labels:
    • Environment:
      QT Assistant 5.9.2 both when directly opened and when opened by the software for context sensitive help. Uses QTextBrowser.

      Windows 7

      Viewed the HTML files in Chrome Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit)


      I've created a documentation set for our software and the .qhc files that are registered all include the style sheets from my HTML editor. If I open an individual HTML file, the style is correct, but when opened in QT Assistant as part of the QTHelp file (.qhc), I lose some of the formatting. For example, the title bar is set to a blue and there is no color in Assistant. If I zoom in a web browser, everything in the topic gets larger, but performing a Zoom in assistant, only the Header paragraphs increase in size. I have Browse arrows included in the header and there positioning is ignored in Assistant. I'm not sure if this is a bug or just operator error. I have gone through the QTHelp documentation, including customizing Assistant, but based on that I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. I should note that I'm the technical writer but have access to developers if needed. I looked for info on how the QTextBrowser browser used in Assistant parse's style sheets but haven't been able to find any as I was hoping to maybe modify my .css files to parse correctly. Any help would be appreciated.

      The style sheets and collection file are attached.
