    Dataedo 7.4 reworks HTML export and customization. You can add your logo, favicon, change font styles, link colors and headers.

    This feature requires Pro edition

    Creating new template

    To customize HTML export you need to create your own custom template. To do so, select existing HTML template in HTML export window as a base template, then click Customize template button on the bottom.

    Dataedo will open new template's location, and it will be shown on the templates list.

    Template files

    The template will be created and the folder containing it will open. The folder contents should look like this:

    Do not change files in this folder. Instead, open the dist folder:

    Changing favicon

    You can change the webpage's favicon (small icon displayed in the browser's tabs) by substituting the favicon.ico file with your own ico format file.

    Changing logo

    You can change the logo shown in the exported documentation. To do this, open the images folder and substitute the logo.png file with your logo in png format. The image should have at least 30px of height and transparent background.

    To change the displayed logo size, edit the logoHeight value in the config.json.js file.

    You may also need to edit padding. To do that add and edit as required the code below to user.css:

    .v-layout .v-side-nav .v-header { padding: 40px 10px; }

    Changing font styles

    You can edit the font style by changing contents of user.css file, using normal css syntax.

    Edit this section to alter the default font settings:

    .v-layout {
        font-family: -apple-system, Segoe UI, Open Sans, Arial, sans-serif;
        line-height: initial;
        font-size: 14px;

    This section alters settings for specific fields:

    .v-content .doc-summary, /* table with object basic information */
    .v-content .doc-actions, /* permlinks on the right side */
    .v-content .doc-metadata, /* timestamps at the object bottom */
    .v-content .table table th, /* table headers */
    .v-content .table table td, /* table cells */
    .v-content .doc-breadcrumb .v-item /* breadcrumb */ {
        font-size: 13px;

    This section alters settings for headers:

    /* Headers font configuration. */
    h1, h2, h3,
    h4, h5, h6 {
        font-family: -apple-system, Segoe UI, Open Sans, Arial, sans-serif;
        font-weight: 700;
    h1 { font-size: 22px; }
    h2, .v-content .v-header { font-size: 15px; }

    Changing color of links

    You can color of hyperlinks and their color on mouse hover by changing contents of user.css file. Open the file in any text editor, then find the section below:

    /* Color of hyperlinks and their color on mouse hover. */
    a { color: #4679C6; }
    a:hover { color: #04589f; }

    Changing the user.js file

    You can add javascript code the the exported file (e.g. to add Google Analytics tracking). The code is run at the end of loading process. To do this, edit the user.js file.

    Sharing custom templates

    Custom templates are saved in the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Dataedo\Templates\HTML folder. Each new template will have its own folder. You can share your template with other users just by copying this folder to their corresponding %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Dataedo\Templates\HTML folder.
