What's With the Crazy Fonts?


We often get notes or emails from Collage users concerned about the fonts in their tasks. Sometimes there are multiple fonts on one page or varied sizes - neither of which seems to have any rhyme or reason.

What likely has happened is that the text was directly pasted from Microsoft Word or some other application into Collage. The result is sometimes a crazy, mixed-up page because Collage is trying to recognize the code from the other application and make it work.

The easiest solution to this problem is to either save your document as Plain Text (.txt) or copy and paste it into Notepad (or some other basic text editor) to strip out all the formatting. It does remove all the bold, italics and fancy headlines you had in Word, but it's a cleaner end product.

You can add formatting in Collage, but that's for another entry ...
