    Is anyone able to provide a title that I can share with the development team for testing?

    Hi Jennifer, I already did:
    https://community.trivantis.com/forums/topic/text-sizelocation-different-in-editor-than-when-published/#post-318507

    To reproduce the problem, you just have to open Lectora with a new, blank title, insert an image file and a text block and switch to the “Run mode”. Then you will see that the text is positioned too low.

    Got it.  Was that version created in 16.2.2?

    According to the .awt file, it was V16.1.1.

    I guess, that was the most current version at June 14, 2016.

    I’ve run into this issue a number of times with the various versions of Lectora. I’ve found that setting the text box properties to convert to image has helped quite a bit with text position issues and bulleted lists. Hope this helps.

    Has anyone seen a correction for this.  If I convert text to image it does help but I’m creating 508 compliant content and that option is not available to me since it won’t allow screen readers to read what was originally in the text box. Im using 17.0.4

    I added some images test1 is in the publisher, test 2 is in run mode, test 2 is the html preview (firefox)

    I find that it works best if you put each paragraph of text into its own text box.

    Ben, what version Inspire are you using and can you post an actual page from the lesson, the pictures do not allow us to see why it’s previewing like that. Also, did you try to see what it looks like published?

    Alright this is great that everyone is having the same issues.  Could SOMEONE from TRIVANTIS pipe in with the solution.

    Rationale why this is happening is because every users personal browser is using it’s own default settings to view the material on the page.  Which is hilarious because i’m using verdana, arial and the most used fonts in the universe and somehow the browsers are still screwing up the kerning and line spacing.

    Solution: (the only one I know of that is painful as faaaa) is to click on the properties of the text box and click on convert to image.  All this will do is preserve all the aesthetic settings so each persons browser doesn’t and it will hold the integrity. SEE ATTACHED.

    Only other solution is to reduce the volume on the page of content.

    But serious trivantis should have their publishing and developing team FIGURE THIS OUT. In this day and age we shouldn’t have to be worrying about this problem that is so 2000’s.

    Cheers,
    Doug
