    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.

    Rob & Acorn,

    My apologies for just now getting back to this. I did some testing this afternoon and found that the issue presents itself when the font size is changed. If the font size is the same, it works fine. When you change the font size, either direction, if overlaps.

    I created a separate text box without an image and duplicated the problem!! I have uploaded the .web file for you to look at.

    Also Acorn, thank you for the instruction on inserting the page title automatically. I will try to make that work at some point. I am quite far behind so I need to try to get caught up and get this site published.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    Steven
