You can't with a "paragraph format". Instead, you need to use "Character Formats".

Thank you Sandra..

I don't know too much about Character format..

Could you explain me difference between Paragraph Format and Character Format ?

Thank you



The "SAP Library" is the documentation, it will explain differences. Click the text "Character Formats" in blue above.


Thank you Sandra, I will check it :)

Did you try to create 2 different text element, the 1st one with

and its own paragraph style

and the 2nd one with

with the 2nd paragraph style?

"Append directly" basically concatenate the content of the text element to the previous text

I was about to suggest that same. The additional benefit is that you can align the second element much more consistently with other elements above and below it.

That's not possible, what are you trying to achieve (if the character formats do not suffice)?

Thank you Janis.

I am new in SMARTFORMS..

I want set two different font size in Same line using two different Paragraph format.

But it may be done through character format also ?

because I was thinking, We can use character format only for Bar code..

Thank you



Barcode or character formats. The character format attributes also "stack" - one can apply several character formats to part of text. First the character format determining font and the text size, then character format for bold (having no font an size), then character format for underline, for example.

Hi Sandeep Patel,

I think its possible.

If you want to do this function then you need to create Custom "Styles" and apply it in your smartforms.

To Deploy your custom styles in smartforms. In Form Attributes -> Output Options -> Give you style name in Style input field.

Do research on "Creating Styles", You can do it in SMARTFORMS transaction code itself.

After Apply styles in your smartforms, In text node, you can select text and apply what style you want.
