So, here’s a weird bug for the greybeards and (Graybyrds ) on this forum…
When I compile to pdf, the text appears in a font which is 1/3 bigger than expected (the typeface is as specified). So if I specify Liberation Sans 12pt, in pdf I get Liberation Sans 16pt. If I specify 9pt, I get 12pt in pdf; if I specify 10pt, I get 13.5pt; and yes, if I specify 24pt, I get 32pt.
This seems to be a problem with the pdf converter (or the way instructions are passed to the converter) and not with the compiler itself. The issue is only with pdf; if I compile the exact same document with the exact same compile settings to .rtf, then the font size comes out as expected. And it occurs whichever method I use to specify the font size: a) selecting ‘override text formatting’ in the compiler and specifying it there; b) selecting ‘as is’ in the compiler and using the font size in the document c) unselecting ‘override text formatting’ and using the font size in the document.
Is this a ‘feature’ which I have mistakenly enabled deep in Scrivener’s unmentionables, and can disable again?
Is this a reproducible bug? Is this my system (Ubuntu 15.04)? Is this just me? Is this a message from the formatting gods that .pdf is a horrible format and should be cast out of polite society?
