Attribute Data Type:
Attribute Default Value:
Attribute Inherited from Preferences?
Attribute First Added:
Sets the default or "normal" font size for each note.
The value is inherited from Preferences, Text, Size.
This attribute allows a set of notes (e.g. Code Examples or Shopping List) to inherit a specific body text font size via a prototype.
$TextFontSize is easily overridden simply by selecting a font size from the Font palette.
IMPORTANT: Changes to this attribute affect only those notes with no current $Text. Once anything has been added to $Text, inheritance is broken. Thereafter $Text uses the relevant attribute settings as at the time the text was added; they are effectively 'baked' into the $Text. The only way to 'reset' text with the wrong $TextFontSize value is to select the text and apply plain text formatting (Style menu). WARNING: setting plain text resets all $Text styling attributes. Is is not possible to 'reset' only font but not colour, text size, bolding, etc., as might be otherwise intuited.
