Default Control font size (line per line) in a VDP text field

I have a text field in a VDP FusionPro template with 3 lines of text. I want the size of the text in each line to be set so the first line is (A)pt size, the second line is (B)pt size, and line three to be (C)pt size.

I have a feeling that there must be a rule for this. I don't want to give the customer control over the size only the content of the text. I want to keep the formatting set because each line has a different importance and the size reflects that.

any thoughts?

Are they really three separate lines (paragraphs) of text, with returns in between? If so, then you can simply set the point size of each line in the Variable Text Editor. Or is it a single paragraph of text that's being wrapped to multiple lines?

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Correct on the second part. What I have is:

*O%
FINANCING
*with approved credit

each line is sized accordingly.

I guess this could be done as three different text fields for the person to enter text into.

My problem arises when someone has a straight block of text that needs to be all the same size. What do I do if they don't want each line handled this way? There's no way of knowing what will be typed in.
