Hi Folks,

Anyone know how to change the background color for the "See Also" pop-up box in RoboHelp (web help) (Latest)

Basically I have those "See Also" links at the bottom of the web pages, and you have these choices to use a button or text, and display a popup menu or topics found dialog.  I selected the popup menu, but the menu background color is default windows gray, so I'd like to be able to change the attributes.

Did see a bunch of parameters in the HTML, but the background color parameter doesn't seem to affect the popup menu.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
