Controlling Font and fontsize in FmP 12.0v3
Posted on 2013-01-07
I have been using FmPro for upwards of 20 years and have just hit a simple but severe snag on upgrading my databases from version 11.0v3 to version 12.0v3.
The problem occurs when Copying text off any webpage and Pasting it into a simple Text field (created with no options). Prior to upgrade, when in Browse or Preview Mode (or actual printing) the field used to show the pasted text in the font and fontsize set for the field, but after the upgrade the field now shows the pasted text in the font and fontsize used by the source webpage. The field’s fontcolour setting will override, and so will the paragraph line spacing, but not the font itself or its size. I cannot find any way to alter either.
In the Edit/Preferences/Fonts tab the Font Options are set to “Synchronise input method with font on field entry” and in Layout mode the Inspector/Data tab sets the input method of the Text field itself as “Synchronise with field’s font”. I cannot find any other relevant option choices.
Any suggestions for retaking control of the text field would be very welcome
