Gents, when printing a contract I have a font size issue. 

I have two layouts: CONTRACTS and P1 (used for printing). 

                                  CONTRACTS layout has text fields with font size 16.

                                  P1 layout is based on pasted contract text and merge fields. The font size there is 9.

In the printed contract almost all mergedfields are 9 font size (as I need), but some of the field are size 16. Those size 16 fields were copy-pasted into CONTRACTS layout from outside.

To make a contract look OK, I need to decrease the font size to 9. As a result, printed contract is OK, but DB has different fonts.

What's going on here?

I am having a hard time to understand this. Are you talking about fields in Layout mode? If so, why don't you simply select them and change their size?

This I understand even less.

I have a vague suspicion that some of your fields may contain pasted styled text that retains its font attributes and overrides the settings made for the field in Layout mode. If that is the case, you need to remove the text's formatting:

thanks for the answer. Sorry for the vague explanation. 

 

I need to remove a text formatting. Will follow your advice.
