Font sizes - display way too big
« on: August 04, 2014, 01:36:20 pm »
Hi all,

Just trying to get to grips with Scribus.

I have an A4 page and am trying to place text frames on the page.  Insert a text frame - no problem, however, for instance, if I then insert text sized at 12pt - it is enormous on the page - looking more like 40 to 50 pt.  am I missing something obvious here?

Hi Mike.

Any chance that you can supply the Scribus file (the SLA) and the exported PDF for comparison?

You may need to use "File -> Collect for Output…" to include the font you're using with the SLA (if it's not a "standard" font).

P.S. You haven't got your zoom set to a large value by mistake have you? (It's easily done.)
