Using a smaller font - SmartStyles

Hi,

I made a SmartStyle which has a character format "A" which has the option font size set at 6.0

If I use this SmartStyle in my SmartForm my "Word-preview" works correctly (as shown in picture)

But when I launch the SmartForm from my driver program to and click on preview my whole form has the same font / font size.

If someone can help me, thanks upfront!

    Hi,

    Did you activate the smartform and the style after making the change? This is necessary for the changes to be picked up via the print program.

    Which device type do you use to create the print and preview? Perhaps it does not support the smaller font size. You can see whick fonts and font sizes are supported for a device type via transaction SE73 -> Printer Fonts -> <Device type>.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    You mention that you use output device LP01. If you check the definition of this output device in transaction SPAD. The field device type contains the name of the device type. This is the one that should be checked via transaction SE73 as described above.
