Working on the Maestro blog from Indio.  My font size changes to small when posted.  I can change it on the design page but it does not stay in the blog.  This occurs whether I have used copy and paste from a doc or I have typed directly into the blog.  Why?

Hey Roxie,

I went and looked at the HTML code for your Indio post and I see lots of  (font-size: xx-small; mso-fareast-font-family)

mso = Microsoft Office, so I still think copying and pasting from word is the primary culprit. Then when you edit pictures and other text, the code gets pushed around and is now affecting everything. Before you can specify new formatting, you need to get rid of the wayward stuff that came over from Word.  To do that:  Select the text that is not formatted right; Click the Tx button in the toolbar – that is the tool for “Remove all formatting” Now you can apply the formatting you want and it should take.

Hey Roxie, If it’s ok with you for me to use your blog post in a video – I’ll record the steps I’m talking about. Let me know.

Sure…you can use any blog I do in a video. I assume you are talking about All Things Frustrated Maestro.

Am just now getting back to studying the problems with font size changing.  I have now located the text box on the compose page of blogger.  Removing all formatting probably will not be hard…but choosing….?  Willl try this out in one of my play blogs.

Next deadline is SEA, first week in February…in Sarasota, FL…no more Brooksville!!  Wanta come back?
