excerpt include macros font size


when using the excerpt include macro, the font size seems to be very large. Is there a way to influence the size of the text that is included through the excerpt? Especially if you have several excerpts included on a page, this would be very useful.

Hi @Andreas Ljungström

I see a simple workaround to have the font size modified. Include a Div macro inside your excerpt macro and add your content inside this div macro. Add font-size: 12px; (or the size that suits your page) into the Style parameter of Div macro to see the font size modified as required.

Hope this helps!



that's a great suggestion! Thanks.

Sorry.. wrong topic thought was excerpt not excerpt include

I have the opposite problem, the font size is really small...

Ooops see this is for Excerpt include - 

Same problem here. Copied a bit of text from an excerpt macro and pasted into Word retaining formatting. Did the same for a bit of text in a Normal style and it is clearly different.


I've been experiencing this problem with multiple include macros - finally think I figured it out. I did a multiexcerpt include which then blew up the text in my included excerpt to Heading 2 size. I finally noticed that the line where the macro was specified was at Heading 2, changed that to Paragraph and it's all the right size now. No need for another plugin!

^this, super simple error. Watch those paragraph styles. Once I read this I was like "OF COURSE that makes sense". 

When you index to a space on your page where you want to put the Excerpt Include macro, I noticed that the formatting at the top right of the editor said that the font was in Heading 2 instead of Paragraph. I just highlighted over the excerpt include macro and changes the font in the editor.
