When I set a new text font in the document inspector, bold and italic text does not update.
I am sure I am missing something here, what might that be?
The simplest test I could come up with is this:
- I create a new note in a new Tinderbox document
- and enter some text, and make parts of the text bold and italics.
- then I reset it to the document font, just to be sure
- I open the document inspector and set the text font from Mercury to IdealSans (which also comes with Tinderbox)
What happens is that the normal text in the note updates, but the bold parts and the italic parts remain in Mercury.
When I force the note to use the document font, all is fine. But when I then change back to Mercury, bold and italics remain in IdealSans.
I understand that for the font change to work reliably, the new font must bring a dedicated style for Italic and Bold, which I believe both fonts in my example do. I tried this also with Helvetica Neue, Jost* or Open Sans, but the result was the same.
So what is the best practice for changing the text font? Is there maybe a specific set of fonts can I reliably change between?
I found that RTF is not exposed via automation, is there any other way to automate forcing the font in all notes?
