Multiple text styling in symbol text boxAugust 22, 2019 at 1:39pm (Edited 2 years ago)
I have a symbol which includes a text box for figures (monetary amounts). I want the numeric characters before the decimal in one type size, and the numeric characters after the decimal in a different type size (smaller). I've set this up on the symbol but when I apply override text, the resulting type displays all in the same size in the symbol instance. Anyone found a way of solving for this without having 2 separate text boxes?
Symbol with 2 different type sizes applied to the text:
Symbol instance with no override text displays correctly:
Symbol instance with override text looses formatting on the smaller characters after the decimal:

If the text is right aligned. Pin the right most text box and set auto width. Then don’t pin the left most text box and put it just next to the other one. Then they will automagically adjust when you change the content.
thanks . That's great. Have been breaking the symbols every time i needed to enter real data so you've saved me a world of pain and trouble!
