Text formatting of active and inactive tabs displays same format



Text formatting of active and inactive tabs displays the same format though it is defined in the skin to display differently. The issue occurs for the horizontal tabs and not for the vertical tabs.


Error Messages

Not Applicable


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Tab group layout
  2. Configure a Custom format in the skin with a different mixin for active and inactive tabs

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. 


This issue is scheduled to be addressed in a future Pega patch release.

Perform the following local-change:
  1. Add the below code to the UserWorkForm rule:
    .MyFormat .MyFormatList .tab-li-t-ns span#TABANCHOR span#TABSPAN SPAN {
        font-weight: normal !important;

    .MyFormat .MyFormatList .tab-li-t-ns-selected span#TABANCHOR span#TABSPAN SPAN {
        font-weight: 700 !important;


  2. Replace MyFormat with YourOwnFormatName and MyFormatList with YourOwnFormatNameList
