    Title Tool: Can't manually change font size

    Hey is anyone else having this problem with MC6 on Mac???  I can't manually type in a font size, I can only select the presets sizes from the drop down menu.  This only is only happenning on my MacBook Pro, on my Windows 7 Workstation I can type in any size I want.

    If you're on a deadline probably just trust marquee for all your titling until you solve the problem.

     

    My issue is not related but for some reason title tool will generate fonts that aren't installed in my system, which means that wehn I save the title, it defaults to Times New Roman.  Both on Mac and PC.  (I was told that it does this when it comes to bringing in sequences from other projects, title tool will try and interperet what font was used in the other NLE)

    Re: Title Tool: Can't manually change font size

    Stu,

     

    Thanks for the advice, but I'm not on a deadline.  The issue is more of an annoyance than it is hindering. I usually prep most of my titles/text work in another document, because of the Avid title tool's lack of simple feature such as a font preview.  And I've found that copy and paste will also bring over the font size with the formating.  I was trying to see if anyone else is having the same issue.  My Mac is fairly new (early 2011 model), I'm running OSX Lion, and I haven't customized anything to the point that I think it would affect Avid.

    Five years later, and we're seeing it in MC v8.7.2 ... editors say it is happening aon all systems ... so, maybe a bug?  I did a quick look at Read Me's and didn't find anything. OSX 10.11.6 ...

    I'm on 8.8.x now Randall, but I never saw that when I was using 8.7.x. And I've been on OS X 10.11.6 for a while now.
