The appearance of selected items in the table of contents of WebHelp Classic output can be enhanced.

  1. Locate the toc.css file in the following directory:
    1. For DITA transformations: DITA-OT-DIR\plugins\com.oxygenxml.webhelp.classic\oxygen-webhelp\resources\css.
    2. For DocBook transformations: [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]\frameworks\docbook\xsl\com.oxygenxml.webhelp.classic\oxygen-webhelp\resources\css.
  2. Edit that CSS file, find the menuItemSelected class, and change the value of the background property.
Note: You can also overwrite the same value from your own custom CSS and then specify the path to your CSS in the transformation scenario (see step 3 in the Changing the Icons in a WebHelp Classic Table of Contents topic.
