Font size drop down not working in context toolbar

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I keep encountering this in 1.7 in all three apps, Designer, Photo and Publisher.

  1. Add Artistic text
  2. Switch to the pointer tool with the text selected
  3.  Click on the font size drop down to alter the size
  4. Observe: Font changes to the new size while drop down is selected
  5. Click on the page
  6. Observe: Font reverts to original size

I can add text without a problem, but if I want to change the font size by selecting the text with the pointer and using the context toolbar drop down the size changes while I have the size selected with the mouse but as soon as I have clicked off the drop down the size reverts and the font remains the same.

The font size will change as a preview while you scroll down the list of sizes. But you need to click on one of the sizes to finalize the change. If you simply click back into the document, without actually clicking on a size, it will revert to the original. This is intentional, I believe, and is not a new behavior with 1.7. 1.6 works the same way.

Hi Will,

I have clicked on the size :) In the video attached to the Designer post it shows I click on the 144pt size of the drop down list but as soon as I have clicked the font 'springs back' to 133pt It appears to be happening when opening a 1.6 file in 1.7 and isn't happening with files that are only created and working in 1.6 or only created and working in 1.7.

Thanks. It was very unclear (to me) that you actually clicked on a size. Good to hear that in the other thread they managed to reproduce it.

Thanks for the report Ken, however could you please refrain from posting the same bug in each sub forum please? If you report it in one, just mention in that it affects the other application - it is much more efficient for us and also saves your time!

 

Thanks :)
