Here’s a text file with a bold 36-pt Bookerley header. The rest of it is 16-pt. I’ve tried other sizes for the header, with no success. The bold header Compile to PDF smaller than the rest of the text.
I suspect your problem is that you just assigned that text a font, size and bold variant in the editor without giving it a style, so “as is” is just treating it as no-style text, so it’s retaining the bold, but using the base font and size of no-style. If you want it treated differently, you need either to give it a style, or mark it with preserve formatting. I think you could use a character style for it instead of a paragraph style, but I’ve not experimented.
I would try compiling with the Default compile format with the Page type assigned to As-Is. If that works as expected, then we should suspect that some setting in the particular compile format is running unexpected interference.
Thanks, Katherine. I should have realized. (Duh.) I set out to never use styles in the Editor, and a couple instances slipped by me. Sorry to waste your time.
I wonder why we can’t get mail back and forth, though. I’ve asked about newsletters several times over the years and never received even ONE. I got your mail today and have gotten mail from you before … and I generally check my spam folder before clearing it out.
It’s hard to believe EVERY newsletter got lost by that route, unless you don’t send more than one a year.
