Hello,

In my search window I'm trying to copy from NAS95S, Helvetica 14 point, to a Pages document, Helvetica 12. In Prefences - Citation, I have checked "Scale font size" to 12.

Am I doing something wrong? I want to view my search window in 14 point but I want it to copy to Pages in 12 point.


Thanks!

Although I don't see any additional options on the Accordance side, you can probably accomplish what you're looking for by using the Paste and Match Style command in Pages (assuming the Helvetica 12 pt is the same as the style at the point of insertion.)

Thanks Mike,

That works, but am I wrong to assume that's what the 'Scale font size' feature in Accordance is supposed to do?

You did not explain what it is doing for you when you tell it to scale. The citation preferences only affect copying as a citation, are you doing that?

You're right Helen. I didn't explain how I was copying.. and that solves the problem!

I was copying (command+c) when I should've been copying as a citation (ctrl+command+c).

When I copy as citation, the font resizing works perfectly.

Thanks!!!
