SYMPTOMS

When you copy text frames from one publication to another, the text in those text frames changes font size.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the text frames were created by a Publisher wizard. Text that is in wizard-created text frames can be changed without user intervention.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Start Publisher 2003 or Publisher 2007.
  2. On the File menu, click New.
  3. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  4. Click the User Assistance tab.
  5. Click to clear the Use a wizard for blank publications check box, and then click OK.
  6. Quit Publisher 2003 or Publisher 2007.
When you create a new publication and copy text frames from another publication into it, the text will not change.

Note This resolution only applies to blank publications that you create after you change the Use a wizard for blank publications setting. If you have already created a publication, the text in the copied text frames may change.

MORE INFORMATION

Publisher 2003 and Publisher 2007 choos the size of type for wizard-created text boxes based on the page size of the publication (among other factors). If you copy text frames from a wizard-created business card (for example) and paste it into a wizard-created tabloid-size publication, Publisher 2003 and Publisher 2007 enlarge the text. If you paste the same text frames in a non-wizard-created publication, the text does not change size.
