I am creating a label for shipping information and wants a bigger and thicker font than the sender's text.
In the editor mode of Cardbox, the characters look different. for example the screen and printed all the letters are the same . How can i make this possible.

thanks in advance
answer in Dutch is welcome

Hi Ferdinand,

You could use the appearance of the merge box to make everything in the merge box bold. If you have a merge box where you want a mixture of bold and normal characters you could use {+b} and {-b} to change the appearance e.g. This is a {+b} test {-b}. As it is not quite clear to my eyesight on screen, note that these are curly braces. You can also use curly braces to indicate italics {+i}, underline ({+u} etc.

I hope this solves your problem

Note typo: ({+u} etc. This should of course read {+u}.

Hi Ferdinand

When editing the format go to printer settings (File > Printer Settings) and change the font for printing. Change for all types of text: Normal, Indexed and Captions (captions = merge boxes). This should give you the result you need.
