    Default Overlapping font in text box - Designer Pro

    Hi all,

    I have overlapping text in a text box when previewing in Firefox and Chrome. Looks fine in Explorer.

    Any ideas?

    Also, is there a way to the page title on the page automatically,...in repeating text?

    Thanks, Steven

    Steven, we need more than the screenshot.

    Is the Heading a part of the same text area?
    If not, bring it to the front and repel under.


    Assuming the page title is the one under Web Properties > Page title, you can with a bit of code and use of Names.

    Create a text area and insert "<Page title>", format to size and colour.
    Still in the Text tool, highlight this phrase and Name it (Utilities > Names) 'pagetitle' and 'htmlblocktext'; adding both separately without the quoting.
    In the Website > HTML Code (head), add:
    Code:
    <script>
    document.getElementById("pagetitle").innerHTML = document.title;
    </script>

    Hi Stephen,

    Can you send me your .web/.xar project file so we can see what is happening? You can find this file by going to File > Save as within Xara.

    Thanks
    Rob

    I have found that if I copy and paste text from a column of type to which I have applied a custom style, the result is a total dog's breakfast.

    Looks like your typical Captcha to me.

    Gary, just tried without any hiccoughs.

    Probably need your design file uploaded.

    I guess it would make sense that it's copying the line indents from the previous text area, which doesn't work well when inserted into a text line. Simply inserting the text into a text column or area would fix that.

    Gary, it is simply that you have applied Fully Justify to a a Text Line that (technically) has no width.

    If you change the justification, it unravels itself.
    If you need to retain full justification, you have to paste into a text column or area.

    UPDATE

    I tried the same on one of my design pages and got better results.
    On yours, if I use the Text tool and just click and type, the letters are entered in reverse (right to left), within a tight width.
    I tried copying 'the ' from the left page to the right and go the same reversing.

    Perhaps it is a bug when Fully Justified is part of the Normal text style.
