I can confirm this is happening on Windows 7 too. Seems fine on OSX.
Meanwhile, the formatting bar remains consistent showing 7 pt
Thank you for confirming. :^)
I've noticed it isn't only 7 pt. I'm working in a complex report where font size is 4. Using same technique, Inspector changes it to 48. It seems that, if it is a font which is not in their options of selected fonts then it tries to guess by jumping to the largest font which begins with that number (this is entirely a guess but all I can see for a pattern).
This is, of course, improper behavior. Once you select a field, you should be able to go to the Appearance tab and see the correct font listed. FMI? While you are in there fixing Inspector, please 'select all' when tabbing to Positions. It drives us nuts that we must remove a prior value and can't simply begin typing our new value. Mr_Vodka posted it in your Bugs forum a few months ago.
And I have to express EXTREME dissatisfaction on the few number of bugs which were fixed with the 11.0v2 updater. My faith (and my company's faith) is failing quickly. And no matter what Domonique tries to tell us, you are still blowing it right and left. Your forum is another example of lack of pre-planning and poor, weak implementation.
And for God's sake ... put back emoticons for us. Communicating only with words on a forum is difficult enough but taking away another method of expressing is one more poor decision on your part.
Thank you for your post.
Like "SWS", I can confirm the problem on my Windows machines. The problem does not occur with Mac OS X 10.5.8 nor 10.6.4.
I have forwarded your post along with my findings to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments for review and confirmation.
I have also forwarded your forum comments to the forum administrator.
I am also having this font size issue with FMP12A on Windows 7. Though my font size is set to be 6, it shows as 72 in the Inspector. You'd think it would have been fixed by now!
