add formatting to text only result

I use scripts to enter boilerplate text into Invoice fields, similar to Quickbooks Items.

The problem is I need to be able to reduce font size for certain portions. It is, of course, text only; I wish I could use HTML tags or something, but there seems to be no way to adjust typesize in Scriptmaker.

I've been trying to use Insert Calculated Result>Specify Calculation>Replace(text,start,size,replacement text) But I think I need more training. Help! Anyone have an idea? Maybe there's a better way to accomplish this?

In version 5 you don't have a lot of options, but you may be able to use this technique.

Set up a merge field like this:

<><><><><> etc.

Then format the large merge fields to the normal font size, and the small merge fields to the small font size that you want. Then, you can assemble the text field by putting the first section of normal text into field LargeText1, then the subsequent small section into SmallText1, and then the remaining normal text into LargeText2. If you have a second section of small text, put it into SmallText2 and so on. Leave any remaining unused fields empty. The result should be what you want.
