Hello,

I have a label object that has 2 named sub-strings. One is a dollar sign and the other is the dollar amount. I have it set so the dollar sign is font size 5 and the dollar amount is font size 8. the problem I am having is the location of the dollar sign. I need it to be at the top and it is at the bottom of the string.

The $99.95 is what is showing now and the $5 is what I need it to look like. Any help would be appreciated.

Eric

If you have v9.40 then you can produce this using the Rich Text label object. Using the RTF editor you can set the dollar sign to be superscripted with the rest set to normal. Otherwise create the price as two separate text objects, sizing and positioning as needed.

Thanks for the reply. We have version 9.3 so the Rich text will not work for us right now. I tried creating two objects and changing the size and position but it does not work with the layout we need and all of our labels do not use the dollar sign.

I think we are going to go with an image file and change based on the price. In the future we may upgrade to 9.4 to handle this through our database.

Thanks again.
