Default Formatting in mapped controls replicated

Followup question re content controls. I've set up the content control using Greg Maxley's utility, but I'm let with a formatting issue. I have controls in both the header (9 point font)


and the body (11 point).

When the text replicates from one to the other, it retains the formatting from where it was entered. So If I enter text in the body (11 pt), when it replicates to the header, it stays in 11 point, even though the box is formatted for 9 point.

How do I get the content control to maintain the correct formatting?

thanks

Use a StyleRef Field field to replicate information from the body of a document to the header.
What is the difference between headings and headers?


Could you post a sample document with the problem? Remove any confidential or proprietary information.

I suspect that you've specified the formatting in the Content Control properties rather than applied the formatting to the paragraph containing the content control.

Which of Greg's Content Control utilities? I suspect the second because it was the one recommended in the source thread and gives more control over CC properties.

I think I worked it out. I used the Rich Text option to create the content controls instead of plain text.

I've attached my test file in case I missed something else. The text on the left has RTF control, while the text on the right has plain text controls.

I agree with your surmise.
I seldom use rich text controls.
