Styles are an important part of HelpNDoc as they provide a way to keep an uniform look throughout the documentation's topics. A style is applied to a piece of text which then becomes linked to it: when the style changes, the format of the text changes too.

HelpNDoc comes with a set of predefined styles. Styles can be added and managed using the styles editor.

To apply a style to a piece of text:

  • Select the text to apply the style to
  • From the "Write" ribbon tab, choose the style to apply from the "Styles" group and click it

Note: By default, any custom font attribute applied to the selected content won't be overwritten when a style is applied. To reset custom first attributes before applying a new style:

  • Selecting the content to style in HelpNDoc's topic editor
  • Press the CTRL keyboard shortcut and keep it pressed
  • Apply the desired style
