font size and line breaks
« on: January 26, 2020, 03:00:39 pm »
Does anyone else wrestle with font sizes and line breaks when posting messages?
Often the message does not format correctly, or it does not appear to me to format correctly.

The reply looks different in preview mode than what gets posted.
When I use the font size drop downs in the editor things go from bad to worse.

Not sure about the line break but the trick to setting the font sizes, is select the one you want, and then set your cursor between the middle quotes.
Try it.

What quotes?
I don't see any quotes?

I just tried the toggle view icon for the first time. It shows where the font size starts and stops but that does not show line breaks.

The following is a test of copying in text from a Word document - Arial font - size 14 - line breaks between each item.
Post preview shows microscopic text.
Actual post shows 4pt font size.
Modified each line in toggle mode to read 14pt. - preview good.
Post good after modification and further tweaking.
Using the Remove Formatting icon applied to the copied text seems to work also.
****************
I lost the line break between the prior two sentences.
The line break shows while editing and in preview but not the post.
It took multiple modifications to get the line breaks to display correctly for the prior two lines.
I had to put in multiple line breaks to get one to save.
