Hopefully this isnt a double post, but I tried to post this a minute ago and it didnt seem to go.
I use Frontpage to make my website ( www.ptclan.00server.com ) . A friend and I collaborate on it. He doesn’t have Frontpage, so when he sends me stuff its typed in Word, then he Instant Messages it to me, then I copy and paste it into Frontpage. The problem is, his stuff is usually single spaced, which is fine. I need it that way. But then when I try to add my own stuff to the same page, try as I might I cannot get it to actually be (vertically) single spaced. It reports the text that I type as being single spaced, but clearly it isnt. The only way I can get it to space itself correctly is to hold down space bar until it starts a new line. This makes it difficult to play with fonts and sizes, since every time I have to readjust it.
I am a little confused by what problem it is that you’re having… When you say single spaced, do you mean…
I’m not extremely familiar with FrontPage, but I have used Dreamweaver a lot… if you’re having problems getting FrontPage to do what you want it to, I would recommend learning alittle bit of HTML, so you can edit whatever you need to in notepad…
Crap, now I have another problem. I went to do that to one of my pages, and when I opened it the font had changed from the last time. When I select all the text it won’t give me the option of picking my old font, what gives?
I use FrontPage exclusively for all my web design projects, you do still need to learn to dink with HTML. ( I am a webdesigner but focus more on graphics than HTML crap. )
However, your best bet is to have your friend send stuff over to you in NotePad – seriously. Word can really screw things up especially if you are using Word 2000 or later. I even use NotePad for when I am copying a recipe from websites, it eliminates all the garbage.
Just do a copy and paste from NotePad and mess with it from there, you can easily highlight fonts and change them as you need.
Sorry about the possible hijack here but i figured while there were a bunch of powerpoint users around I’d ask. Question is when i lay something out on the page and then go to preview it the alignment is all off. then when i save it as a page and open it in a browser the alignment will be even more messed up. Is there some option im not turning on/off or something?? please help…thanks
