How to change the size of the web item text in WAD 7.0

Dear All

I am quite new to WAD and I am having a problem with changing the font size of a web text item

I have searched already and someone suggested changing the Design property to HEADER1 or HEADER2 etc and then I should be able to change the font / size.

I have done this but to no avail

I want to have large heading across the top of the web template

am I using the wrong web item ?

I know I can key the text directly into the web template and change the font from the menu bar but I need it in an item as I want to export them through to PDF later

Would be grateful of any help

thanks

Sandra

    Hello,

    Yes if you want to export through PDF then you shouldn't mannualy write that text in template.

    So you have to use the Text Web item (Web Items -> Web Item Group: Miscellaneous -> Text Web Item). Then go to it's property and select anyone value from dropdown for "TEXT_DESIGN" proprty.

    Befor that please be sure that you have unchecked the "Display Text Only" property of this Text Web Item. if you will not uncheck this, then whatever the formatting you will choose that isl not going to be reflected in the template.

    So if you forget to uncheck this option, then using the <span> tag, you can format your Text.

    Thank You

    HI,

    If you want a report heading on your web template, you can type directly in the web template with your required Font size. It's not required to use any Text Elements web item. Please try it.........

    Thank you all for your quick responses (I will award points once this is sorted)

    On the information you have supplied this has opened up yet another new part of WAD that I have not experienced ...TAGs 😊

    Shubhranshu - I have done what you said but as I have never used tags I have just had a look around and found that I can insert Any Tag but not sure if I should be doing that. If it is inert any tag , I chose FONT from the drop down and cbmAttributes defaulted into the custom tab for the class name but not sure what it wants in the Attributes and CSS Style tab, it won't accept what I am putting which is leading me to believe that I shouldn't be doing it that way.

    Venkat - thanks for the links they will prove very useful. I've had a look and although they talk alot about the XHTML code for tags they don't actually say how you do it in the editor - I would like to produce one that way first and then see the code it generates for it. I'm a bit apprehensive with changing the code direct as I don't want to mess anything up.

    Thanks again for your help
