Font size changes in Output

Postby svaishnav on Mon Apr 28, 2008 10:20 pm

Hi,

When my target output is FrameMaker, the font size defined in Flare stylesheet changes in the generated output. For example, I have defined P.body of size 11 pt. When I generate the output, the size changes to 38 pt. Can somebody guide me how to prevent this?

Thanks & Regards

I don't have FM so I don't generate that output, but the font sizes for Word output are specified by what you have in the "print" medium in the stylesheet (by default; you can override that in the target settings). If there's nothing specified for a specific tag in the "print" medium, then it'll use whatever's in the "default" medium. Check the styles in the "print" medium of the stylesheet to see if a font size was somehow set to 38pt. It might be easiest to do this by right-clicking on the stylesheet and selecting Open with > Internal Text Editor. Scroll down and you'll see a section called @media print -- look in there.

Or...simply open the dropdown box at the top of the stylesheet editor and select "Medium: Print" then go find your <P> tag.

also, at the top of the XML editor (topic file editor), select the "Medium: Print" and see what happens to your page visually in the editor.

In the "target" file, ensure your "target medium" is selected from <default> to <print> (my suggestion).

My font sizes for online and print targets are completely different (as is the typeface).

If your <p> tag does not perform font size changes, examine the <body> tag for font size changes.

Remember...this is CSS...so your style's cascade.
