It happens also in text insets. ================================= Elise: The most likely cause is that the text which precedes the variable insertion point is not in the Verdana font.
The assured way of fixing it is to do the following: 1. Add a character format named Verdana in which you specify the font as Verdana, and the size as "As Is." 2. Open the Variable dialog, select, select a user variable, and click Edit Definition to open the Edit User Variable dialog. 3. Observe that the the new Verdana character format now appears in the list of character formats. 4. Presumably, the definition slot now contains nothing but the value of the user variable. Let's assume that the current definition is "Blah." 5. Change the variable definition as follows: <Ventana>Blah<default font> If this fails to correct the problem, then you have identified another bug in Frame 7.0. ========== Dan Emory & Associates FrameMaker/FrameMaker+SGML Document Design & Database Publishing <danemory7224 at sbcglobal.net>
