Info and Warning Boxes


Information and Warning Boxes are often used in documentation to draw a reader's attention to some crucial piece of data.

Adding Info and Warning Boxes 

Info and Warning Boxes are now Quick Parts. Refer to the Insert a Quick Part section for more information.

Customizing Info and Warning Boxes

Each time you create a project from a template, a project folder appears in the your File Storage. This folder contains style files, script files, some template-related images. Info Box and Warning Box icons are also stored there by default. 

For example, for a project called User Guide, these icons will have the following paths:


If you want to have a custom icon for these boxes, just replace these files with your own images leaving the name and location the same. Alternatively, you can code your own infoboxes specifying alternative locations to the images.

If you have accidentally deleted the default infobox, you can get the default markup from our Knowledge Base.

Restoring Missing Icons from Template

In case you have accidentally deleted the icons, you can restore the default images by copying them from the template you've used for your project. Follow the steps below:

  • Launch the File Manager via clicking the File Manager... main menu icon.
  • Go to Storage\Templates\Projects\**name-of-the-template-you-used**\
  • Hover over the info.png icon and enable the check-box in the top-right corner.

  • Enable the checkbox for the warning.png icon, as well.
  • Click the Copy button at the File Manager toolbar.

  • Select your project folder: Storage\**your-project-name**\
  • Click Ok to copy the files.
  • In case you have already created a publication with the icons missing, publish the project again in Update mode to overwrite the existing publication.  

Using this approach, you can restore/modify the info and warning boxes in your ClickHelp projects.
